Ok people I have been experimenting with fried rice a great deal, and am pretty much going to rest with this recipe. All the recipes I have tried were just missing something so I have taken the best parts of each recipe and combined them. I am going to use jasmine rice for this recipe because in my opinion it is superior to basmati. Comments/suggestions welcome.
- 4 cups jasmine rice
- wok oil (out of all the oils this one is #1)
- 2 -3 dashes of grated ginger (fresh ginger can be substituted)
- 1 white onions (chopped) or 4 -5 green onions
- 3⁄4 cup chicken stock
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 3 eggs (scrambled)
- 1 cup frozen peas and carrot (optional)
- 2 -3 teaspoons salt
- soy sauce (as much as you prefer)
- Prepare the jasmine rice. Combine 4 cups of jasmine rice and 4 cups of water in a rice cooker. Once the rice is cooled place in the refrigerator until chilled.
- Scramble eggs in seperate pan using whatever oil you normally cook eggs with. Make sure to fold the eggs over, so they can be cut into thin strips.
- Heat wok and 3-4 tablespoons of wok oil to medium heat.
- Saute the white onion until soft and partially transparent (usually takes me 3 minutes or so) along with 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, frozen peas and/or carrots. ***If you opted for green onions skip this step and saute the peas/carrots in wok oil.***.
- Add the rice making sure to seperate the grains (with fingers) and mix with the vegetables. Add another 3 tablespoons of wok oil, sesame oil, egg strips, ginger, chicken stock, and sugar (green onions if you opted for these).
- Raise the heat to HIGH add soy sauce to desired darkness/taste and STIR-FRY. (I usually use anywhere from 1/2 to a full cup of soy)***it is crucial for the stove to be as hot as possible*****.
- Basically you are going to Stir-fry till all the liquids are dissolved and the fried rice has reached the dryness desired.
- While cooling salt to taste in order to enhance the flavor.
The directions and proportions were off.. Not the worse thing I ever made but far from the best...
This was so good! I used regular white rice that I had left over and added bean sprouts. I didn't have frozen peas and carrots so I used canned. I will definitely make this again.
Excellent Fried Rice. The only addition I made to the recipe was to add bok choy at the same time I added the green onion. I have made this Rice many times with Egg Drop Soup and Egg Rolls. I have served it to Family and Guests, and all have enjoyed it immensely.
