Fried rice is probably the one thing asian that i cook most over here. Well one reason why is cause, SO can't get used to plain white rice. So i have to add some flavour to rice if i want to eat rice. Sure I can eat it alone but who wants to cook twice.. thats just plain crazy.
oh, anyway. Well sure i don't make nasi goreng like we do in KL or at the mamak stall. But then again, bear in mind i've probably cooked nasi goreng like twice in my life till i got here, so i would know where to begin anyway. I'm just wondering randomly, what is the one simple thing that you cook most and what goes into that.
I never follow recipes, and whatever i cook changes everytime i make it depending on whats in my storage. Here was what was in my fried rice this week. (it was accompanied by half a roast chicken - bought)
Oil - almost half cup, 1 medium onion, 4 cloves garlic, 3 tbsp oyster sauce, 3 tbsp soy sauce, 1 small packet of fried rice seasoning meant for 1 bowl of rice - probably equivalent to 1 stock cube, pepper, 3 slices ham chopped, half cup tomato passata/ puree, 2 handfulls frozen mushroom, frozen green peas, 4 bowls cooked rice, 3 eggs. Kinda in that order. As you can see, i just throw whatever needs to be used up before it gets spoilt really. Tasted good to me. Served with a goo tomato ketchup! :) - you could probably feed 5 hungry people with this.
