Egg Fried Rice Anyone Can Make
This is something that has eluded me for many years, I could never master fried rice that tasted and looked appealing. I buy the ready cooked rice because life's too short to cook and cool rice when you just want to get on with business of eating!
Serves 2 or (4 as a side)
250g Microwavable Long Grain rice or left over rice.
1 Medium egg, beaten
75g Cubed ham
100g Frozen peas
1/2 tsp Garlic paste or 1 clove of garlic crushed
1 Spring onion thinly sliced
1 tbsp Light soy sauce
1 tbsp Stir fry oil
1 tbsp Sherry
In a large non stick frying pan, scramble the egg until almost cooked. Take of the heat and set aside.
Heat the oil in the pan and fry off the ham and garlic for 1-2 minutes, add the cold rice (break up if vacuum pack) and the peas. Cook for a further 5 minutes until everything is warmed through.
Add the sherry, bring up to the boil, reduce the heat and add the soy and egg. Warm everything through and garish with the chopped spring onion. If you wish you can add cooked prawns and cooked chicken along with the rice for a more substantial meal.
