Fried rice is one of the easiest dishes to prepare. All you just need is steamed rice and other ingredients such as eggs, vegetables and meat (optional if you are a vegetarian) and you have your dish. Plus, minimal time is required so it is a convenient dish for anyone who is in a hurry but still want home-cooked food.


Once your steamed rice is cooked, set it aside to cool. My mother would tell me that leftover rice is the best but I tend to finish what everything I have so that I can have fresh food every time. And while you are waiting for the rice to cool, you can prepare the side ingredients. First, make scrambled eggs (2 or 3 eggs would do) and shred them to pieces. Next, stir fry the mixed vegetables - peas, carrots and corns in a wok using little cooking oil (as these are frozen items make sure they are thawed first.) You can then pour in the steamed rice and stir fry with the mixed vegetables for a few minutes. Add in the shredded eggs and stir fry again, then add a dash of salt to taste. You are now ready to serve. Simple, isn't it? There are various recipes out there and basically what ingredients to put are up to you but what I have shared is the most commonly used. And yes, you can add in some pineapple cubes so it looks like pineapple rice.

    Tasha - It's really very easy! Plus I'm a lazy person so this is one of my favourite dishes to cook, LOL.


  3. Beth F Says:

    Crazy easy! I'll have to remember this next time I'm tempted to make risotto -- this is a lot less labor intensive.


  4. Kay Says:

    This does look very easy. I don't have a wok though. Wonder if I could just use a regular skillet. I suppose. My husband loves fried rice and gets it often if we eat Chinese/Japanese food.


  5. My fake fried rice recipe is popular, I always make it for potluck occasions

    Keep cooking & booking,

    Beth - Risotto! I'd like to know how to make it!


  7. Melody Says:

    Kay - I think as long as you've a kitchen tool big enough for stir frying, it shouldn't be a problem.

    We've recently discovered how easy it is to cook fried rice and we all love it, too. I usually make a BIG batch of rice one night so that I'll have enough leftovers for fried rice the next. Though I think I fry up my rice a bit more...
