Easy Peasy Fried Rice …
Ingredients …
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil (or any cooking oil)
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 4 – 5 pieces rindless bacon, diced
  • 2 celery sticks, finely chopped
  • 1 ½ cups cooked, cold long grain (or jasmine) rice (either cooked the day before or cooked and cooled in a rice cooker, you may need to experiment)
  • 1 cup chicken meat, shredded and diced
  • ¾ cup corn kernels
  • ¾ cup frozen peas, defrosted
  • 1 cup snow peas, topped and tailed and sliced diagonally
  • ¾ cup diced red capsicum
  • 3 – 4 eggs, cooked as an omelette and sliced thinly
  • 1 small carrot, grated
  • 15 – 20 green prawns, peeled, cooked and chopped
  • ½ teaspoon salt (leave out if you wish)
  • 2 – 3 tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, minced
  • 1 cup green shallots, finely chopped
  • fresh coriander, roughly chopped (optional)
Method …
  1. Chop, grate, measure and prepare all the ingredients. To create the eggs, simply break them into a dish and whisk to combine. Add some oil to the wok or pan, add the egg, cook on one side, flip, remove from pan when cooked and chop or slice roughly. (Tip: I usually cook the egg in batches so it’s nice and thin).
  2. Heat oil for frying in wok and add onion and bacon. Stir-fry for 1 – 2 minutes or until onion is just transparent.
  3. Add the celery and stir-fry for a further minute.
  4. Add the rice, stir-frying for 1 minute.
  5. Add the chicken, corn, peas, snow peas, capsicum, eggs, carrot and prawns. Toss all the ingredients together and stir-fry for 1 – 2 minutes or until heated through.
  6. Add the salt, soy sauce, ginger and shallots and mix through.
  7. Serve, topped with fresh coriander.
