Chinese egg fried rice with peas
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Chinese
  • ½ cup brown rice and wild rice mix - I like to avoid white rice due to its higher glycemic index
  • Water to boil the rice
  • 1 medium egg
  • ½ a shallot sliced lengthwise
  • 1 heaped tbsp green peas
  1. In the same saucepan used for cooking the noodles, rinse and cook the washed rice. The trick to cook perfectly fluffy rice each time is to use exactly double the amount of water to the quantity of rice used. That is my thumb rule and it never fails me.
  2. Once the rice is done set the saucepan aside
  3. Wipe down the wok after preparing the fish, you may need to use another wooden spatula to scrape off the sticky bits from the wok before starting out with the fried rice
  4. Crack an egg into the wok set on a medium flame
  5. Stirring continuously scramble the egg and add the chopped shallot, spritz some oil onto the wok to cook the shallots
  6. Ensure you keep stirring so that the egg doesn't get lumpy and overcooked and the shallot doesn't burn
  7. Add Blue Dragon light soy sauce and stir well
  8. Then add the cooked rice, season with some salt and stir and mix well
  9. Cook for under a minute on high heat and add in the peas and mix
  10. Take the wok off the heat and set aside
