Eried rice is probably the single most commonly prepared dish in kitchens of Asian homes, and it is rarely prepared from scratch. Instead it utilizes leftover rice along with leftover vegetables, tofu, meat scraps, and other items to prepare a tasty hot meal that is quick and easy to cook, requiring no shopping. You may allow your culinary creativity to express itself freely when cooking fried rice at home, while also applying the”waste not, want not”philosophy of the Asian kitchen.
First, you need to prepair assorted leftover ham chicken, bacon, tofu and vegetables (except leafy greens), such as carrots, corn, mush rooms, peas, green beans, and onion.
Asian Home-style Fried Rice Recipe
Eried rice is probably the single most commonly prepared dish in kitchens of Asian homes, and it is rarely prepared from scratch.
Dice all meat and vegetable leftovers into small pieces, then set aside in a bowl.
Heat oil in a wok over high heat. When hot, add the garlic, chilli, and leftovers and stir-fry quickly for about 1 minute.
Add the egg, stirring quickly to scramble.
Add the cooked rice and continue to stir-fry until the rice and vegetables are well mixed, when the rice begins to brown, about 3 to 5 minutes.
Sprinkle on the spring onions,salt,and pepper,and continue to stir and turn for another 1 to 2 minutes.
Transfer to serving dish, or to individual rice bowls.
The cooked rice should be dry and firm when preparing this dish; soggy rice does not work well in this recipe. If you have leftover meat such as stir-fried fish, they may be added along with the vegetables and tofu. A sprinkling of minced fresh coriander and a dusting of Sichuan Pepper-Salt Powder on top ofthe finished dish provide some stimulating flavors that will add a lot of character.
