Chinese Fried Rice


After all these years of cooking, come to think of it, during the initial years of my marriage, I struggled to cook. Not because I don't know how to cook, but cooking according to the food happiness of my other half-half literally killed me. I thought I have picked up the crucial tips on what he fancies or not while we were courting, but no. Once the reality to marriage dust started setting, was not easy mind you. Each and every day, as the reality marriage bullet started biting in, I realise that you either cook to his likings, or else, let the food battle begin. Trust me, men generally expect us women to give in. I am not sure if I should advise you, you should give in, but I guess if you wanna keep your marriage flame going, I reckon cooking to his tastes will not hurt. Thank god, I found out that my other half-half won't mind fried rice. Yippie-yeh-me! Shouldn't I be happy? Of course because anything goes for fried rice (Kampung Fried Rice & Belacan Fried Rice). Chinese Fried Rice I think can never be a failure? Leftover cooked white rice, garlic, prawns, dark soy sauce and spring onion garnished? Lets not waste not any bit of this enjoyable Chinese Fried Rice.

Ingredients
2 cups cooked white rice
8 prawns (remove shells, de-vein, remove skin and chopped)
5 pips garlic - chopped
200g (about 1 cup) frozen mixed veges (de-frost)
2 eggs
1/2 tbsp dark soy sauce
A good dash of sesame oil
1 tsp pepper (or as preferred)
2 stalks of spring onion (shredded)
Salt for taste
4 tbsp of oil

Method
When oil is heated, fry garlic and prawn for a min or two.
Add rice, veggies, dark sauce, sesame oil, pepper and salt.
Stir to combine all together, very quickly, just for 2 minutes or so.
Push rice aside and break eggs in the center.
Very gently fold over rice and stir.
Off heat and combine in spring onion.
