Step by Step Method

Step 1

Make sure you have all the ingredients for this stir-fried rice on hand before you begin cooking so the frying can proceed without interruption.

Step 2

To make the sauce: In a small bowl, mix together all of the ingredients and reserve.

Step 3

Place the cooked rice in a bowl. Using your hands, break up any lumps and reserve.

Step 4

If using fresh peas, pour the water into a small pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the peas and boil for 1 - 2 minutes or until they are tender. Drain and reserve. If using frozen peas, allow them to thaw, then drain well and reserve.

Step 5

In a bowl, beat the eggs with 1 tablespoon of the peanut oil, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and white pepper.

Step 6

Heat a wok over high heat for 30 seconds. Add 2 tablespoons of the peanut oil and, using a spatula, coat the wok with the oil. When a wisp of white smoke appears, add the beaten eggs and scramble with the spatula for about 1 1/2 minutes, or until medium-firm. Turn off the heat and transfer to a plate. Cut into small, coarse pieces, and reserve.

Step 7

Wash and dry the wok and spatula.

Step 8

Heat the wok over high heat for 20 seconds. Add the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons peanut oil and, using the spatula, coat the wok with the oil.

Step 9

When a wisp of white smoke appears, add the ginger and stir briefly. Then add the garlic and stir briefly.

Step 10

Add the shallots and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, lower the heat to medium, and cook for 2 minutes, or until the shallots are translucent.

Step 11

Add the peas, raise the heat to high, and stir and cook for 2 minutes, or until very hot. Add the rice, stir to mix, then lower the heat to medium, and stir and mix for 3 minutes, or until the rice is very hot.

Step 12

Raise the heat to high, stir the sauce, and drizzle it over the rice.

Step 13

Stir constantly for about 2 minutes, or until the rice is evenly coated with the sauce. Add the eggs and stir and mix for about 1 minute.

Step 14

Taste for seasoning and adjust, if necessary.

Step 15

Turn off the heat and add scallions and distribute evenly.

Step 16

Transfer to a heated dish, and serve.

Delicious, delicious, delicious. I loved it. Quick and easy to make. I can't wait to have it with a little shrimp mixed in. My hubby is going to love this dish. My sister in law & I enjoyed it very much, great flavor and textures. It really was yummy. The only change to your recipe was to use a large duck egg instead of a chicken egg. Thanks for sharing another wonderful recipe my friend.

Fried rice is always a favourite. I did cut down on the eggs because I served this with a stirfry dish of vegetables, by itself I would have added all the eggs. Loved the sauce, and I like peas with everything. Thank you, much enjoyed

Although I didn't adhere exactly to the recipe instructions I ended up with a very enjoyable meal. I use recipes like fried rice to clean out the veggie bin of bits and pieces so added a grated carrot, diced celery, zucchini, and red pepper to the mix. I stirred them into the wok with the ginger and garlic. I thawed the peas in the microwave for ease. The sauce here was more than enough to flavor the dish. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Made for FYC tag at Food, Friends, & Fun.

I treated myself to a neat new rice cooker, rice was great and just perfect for your Yum Yum Fried Rice recipe. Other than scaling down for two I made as directed. This is delicious, the flavorful combination of ingredients make for one great tasting fried rice.
