Show me a fried rice recipe and you will find me in the kitchen.  This is probably my favorite way to make and eat rice.  I have discovered over the years, tricks to make fried rice a little different.  I was curious to find out if Curtis had a trick of his own.

Fried Rice

Serves 4


Ingredients :

2 3/4 cups water
1 1/2 cups uncooked long grain white rice, rinsed, drained
4 tablespoonsl canola oil, divided
2 large eggs, beaten to blend
4 small carrots (about 4 ounces total), peeled and finely diced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/3 cupreduced-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

Method :

Combine the water, rice, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt in a rice cooker and cook according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Let rice cool and put in the refrigerator.

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add the eggs and stir with a fork for about 30 seconds or until just cooked.

Remove the eggs from the skillet and set aside on a plate.

Heat the remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil in the pan over medium-high heat.

Add the carrots and stir fry for 2 minutes.

Add the cold rice and stir fry for 2 minutes or until heated through.

Season with salt and pepper.

Stir in the eggs and 3/4 of the green onions.

Add the soy sauce and sesame oil and continue to stir fry for 1 minute.

Transfer the rice to a bowl and sprinkle with the remaining green onions.


Eat and enjoy.

  2. Hi Chaya! I really love fried rice as it's the best way to clean out the fridge of going-to-spoil ingredients ;)
