Fried rice

To cook fried rice, i always have to plan in advance. No, not prepare the ingredients.... its to cook extra rice and create ' leftover cold rice'.

As for the ingredients, i will just put whatever i have in the fridge.

This time round, i have leftover luncheon meat from our breakfast for the week. Wanted to put my leftover CNY bak kua to stir fry but kena rejected by hubby. So have to use chinese sausage lor!

He is still tramatised by my bak kua fried egg!

In fact, he decides on the meat this time (i dun usually ask him for his opinion). but on saturday morning, while we are arguing about whose turn it is to get out of bed first, i ask him to choose between:
- minced pork and luncheon meat
- minced pork and chinese sausage
- chinese sausage and luncheon meat

and guess what he choose?
ALL 3, minced pork and luncheon meat and chinese sausage.
Of cos cannot lah! so much meat... eat fried rice or fried meat?

To satisfy his carnivorous appetite, i gave him some prawns instead.

What do you need?
- cold leftover rice for two
- 1/4 canned of luncheon meat (cubed)
- 1/2 a chinese sausage (sliced thinly)
- approx 6 prawns (shelled, cleaned, diced)
- 2 handful of frozen corn
- 3 stalks of spring onions
- 1 hadful of dried scrimps (soaked and chopped)
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoon of black pepper sauce
- pepper
- sesame seed oil

How to do it:
Heat pan using medium heat and fry garlic until light brown. Add minced dried scrimps and stir fry until fragrant (1 min)
Turn heat to low, without putting more oil, add luncheon meat and slow fry until luncheon meat browns. Will take about 5 mins.
Add chinese sausage and stir fry for another 2-3 mins.
Push both sausage and luncheon meat to the side of the pan and pour 1 teaspoon of oil into pan.
Crack the 2 eggs into the oil, breaking the yolk and add soya sauce and pepper onto the eggs.
When the eggs hardens on one side (approx 1 min), mix the egg together with the meats and push to side of the pan.
Add prawn into pan and stir fry until it turns pink/cooked.
If you are using a non stick pan, dont need to add more oil before adding prawns

After prawn is cooked, add in the corn and mix all ingredients well.
Add rice and mix well. to mix well, you will at least have to stir for 3 mins.
Add pepper sauce and mix well, stir for another 2 mins.
Lastly, add spring onions, stir fry until spring onions soften.
Add dash of sesame seed oil and pepper, serve.
