Fried rice is a common staple food item in most American-Chinese cuisines. It is also a popular component in other forms of Asian cuisine. The ingredients are varied and depend upon the kind of cuisine that is being prepared. This rice is generally prepared in a wok and is made from cold rice that has been pre-boiled. Let us take a look at some of the recipes enlisted below.

Basic Method

Ingredients
  • Peanut Oil, 2 tbsp.
  • Rindless Bacon Rashers, 0.35 lb. (cut cross-ways into long thin strips)
  • Green Prawns, 0.66 lb. (peeled, deveined, and chopped)
  • Red Capsicum, 1 (halved, deseeded, and finely chopped)
  • Frozen Peas, 2 cups
  • Eggs, 3 (lightly whisked)
  • White Rice, 4 cups (cooked, long-grains)
  • Bean Sprouts, 1 cup
  • Soy Sauce, 2 tbsp.
  • Green Shallots, 2 (trimmed diagonally and thinly sliced)
Preparation
Take a large wok and heat some oil in it over high flames. Add the bacon and stir-fry this mixture for 2 minutes. Toss in the prawns, peas, capsicum, and stir-fry it for 1 minute. Now, reduce the heat to a medium-high and put eggs into the wok. You will have to use a wooden spoon to break up the eggs. Add cooked rice to the wok. Cook this for 2 minutes and toss it well. Wait till it gets cooked thoroughly. Once done, mix the bean sprouts and soy sauce in the wok. Set the heat on medium, keep tossing it for a minute, and combine the ingredients well. Serve the rice in bowls and sprinkle some green shallots over it. Serve immediately.

Add some garlic, salt, and chicken bouillon along with the rice and stir it well. You also need to add the scrambled egg that was cooked earlier, to this mixture and mix it well together.
