Fried Rice Restaurant Style

Friday, February 20, 2009

I have always wanted to find a recipe similar to my mother's fried rice and this recipe is pretty darn close. It did taste similar to what they would serve in a restaurant. Very tasty. I did cook my rice in a rice cooker rather than a pot of boiling water since it was so much easier. I will definitely make this recipe again.

Fried Rice Restaurant Style

2 cups enriched white rice
4 cups water
4 carrots, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup frozen green peas
1 small onion
2 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 eggs
soy sauce to taste
sesame oil, to taste (optional)

In a saucepan, combine rice and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
Heat wok over high heat. Pour in oil, then stir in onions and garlic. Add carrots and peas. Crack in eggs, stirring quickly to scramble eggs with vegetables. Stir in cooked rice. Shake in soy sauce, and toss rice to coat. Drizzle with sesame oil, and toss again.

Yield: 8 servings
