Chinese Fried Rice

I had been craving fried rice for a while, so I found this recipe on recipezaar and made it. I liked it, but I would probably use less sesame oil next time. Also make sure the rice is cold. It clumps together otherwise.

2 eggs, beaten
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 green onions, finely chopped
1 carrot, finely chopped
1/2 cup frozen peas
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 cups cold cooked rice
1 chicken bouillon cube
2 tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
3 tablespoons light soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil

1. on low heat place 1 tablespoon olive oil in large saucepan or wok. Cook beaten eggs briefly, breaking into pieces. Remove and set aside.
2.Add 2 tablespoons olive oil to pan. Add onions, carrots, and peas. Stir-fry for 2 minutes.
3.Dissolve chicken bouillon cube in water. Place in pan and add cold rice, garlic powder, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Toss lightly to mix well and heat for 3 minutes. Add in egg pieces and mix.
4. Additional soy sauce may be added to taste. (One cup of finely chopped pork or chicken pieces may also be added.)


  1. Traditionally, fried rice is made from leftover rice.

  2. This sounds good...we'll have to try it.
