Fried Rice

Fried rice is simply cooked rice that has been stir-fried with a variety of other ingredients, generally in a wok. Depending on the type of fried rice you’re creating, the ingredient may vary. Fried rice is a traditional national dish of Indonesia and a common component of East Asian, Southeast Asian, and certain South Asian cuisines. However, some restaurants serve cuisines that are not based on the dish’s local tradition.

How To Prepare

Cooking Rice

  • Rinse rice very well till the water runs clear of starch. Soak rice in water for 30 mins. Drain and keep aside.
  • In a pot, bring water to a gentle boil with salt and 2 to 3 drops of toasted sesame oil.
  • Add the soaked and drained rice to the hot water.
  • On a low to medium to medium-high heat simmer rice without the lid.
  • When rice becomes al dente or just about cooked, remove the pot from the heat. Strain the rice in a colander or sieve.
  • You can also gently rinse cooked rice in water so that they stop cooking and don’t stick to each other. Cover the cooked rice and set aside until the rice cools completely. You can even refrigerate rice with a covered lid for 30 minutes.

Chopping Veggies

  • When the cooked rice is cooling, chop the veggies finely and keep aside. 
  • Remember to chop the french beans very finely. They take more time to cook than other veggies. You can also blanch them first and then cook. Another option is to add the beans first and then add the other vegetables.

Making Fried Rice

  • Heat oil in a wok or a pan. First add the star anise and fry for a few seconds or until the oil becomes fragrant.
  • Add the garlic, ginger and sauté for some seconds. No need to brown the garlic.
  • Add the spring onions whites and sauté for about 2 minutes.
  • Then add finely chopped french beans.
  • Stir fry french beans for 2 to 3 minutes over medium to medium-high heat.
  • Add the remaining finely chopped veggies, including mushrooms and celery. Increase the heat to a high to thoroughly cook all of the vegetables.
  • You have to continuously toss and stir while frying so that the veggies are uniformly cooked and do not get burnt.
  • The vegetables have to be stir-fried, until they are almost cooked and yet retain their crunchiness and crispiness. Stir-frying vegetables on high heat takes about 4 to 6 minutes.
  • Add the soy sauce, salt and pepper. Stir quickly and add cooked and cooled rice. Stir fry for a few minutes until the sauce has coated the rice well. Keep a check when adding salt, as soy sauce already has salt in it.
  • Serve the fried rice hot as it is or with with your favorite Chinese side.
