Did you ever wonder how to make Chinese Fried Rice? Well today is your lucky day! Here’s a delicious recipe ready in 30’ and healthier than a takeaway.
Bring a pot of water to the boil. Add the chopped carrots and after 8’stir in the frozen peas. Cook together for another 3’. Drain well and set aside.
Use chilled cooked rice or cook rice as per the package instructions. Then spread rice onto a large baking sheet and place the entire tray in the freezer for at least 15 minutes.
Heat 2 Tbsp of oil in a wok or large pan; fry the garlic for 3’, then add the prawns and fry for another 3’. Over a high heat, add the cooked rice and stir well.
Pour the beaten eggs onto one side. Working quickly, swirl the egg until almost cooked (it should look like undercooked scrambled eggs), using a spatula break the egg into small pieces and mix with the rice.
Add the carrot and peas tossing to mix well; stir-fry for 3’. Serve with green onion and add some lime juice if you want.
*Other nice ingredients I add from time to time are: mushrooms, sweetcorn, pineapple, left over chicken or squid.
*To make this recipe vegan friendly don’t add eggs.
