Spicy Rice of the Fried Variety.


Made a bit of a spicy fried rice for dinner last week and decided to whop it on here if that's ok.  This was also a ploy to get some extra vege down the kids (a constant battle in our house)!

I always find the preparation for this sort of dish a bit of a bind because it all has to be ready and waiting to be tossed in, but then once it's all in the wok the job's done init?  The ingredients/quantity of ingredients can all be modified to suit individual taste, so really you can just use as much or little of whatever you wish - it's a free for all!

Majority of Ingredients

Just softened up my chopped onions, ginger, garlic, and green chilli in a bit of stir fry oil, added the vege - mushroom, pepper, frozen peas and sweetcorn (which I blasted in the microwave beforehand) and stir fried. Then scrambled in the eggs (I used 4) and added cooked long grain rice (approx 7oz) and soy sauce.  Tossed it all around for a bit and jobs done!  Obviously additional ingredients (such as chopped bacon and/or prawns) can be added at the frying stage.  We just served up with some chopped cooked chicken (try saying that lot when you've had a skinful!) that I'd done the night before and a dash of sweet chilli sauce.

Naughty Starters!

Just as a treat (for the kids of course) we had a few Chinese starters (that I bought from Sainsburys!) - although we had to stop my little girl from eating the entire lot!

What's your favourite 'Rice of the Fried Variety'?

  1. Hi Jen, mmmm this looks so yummy, I'm actually tempted to make it for dinner, it's just a shame I haven't got any of those lovely starters to hand as I adore prawn toast etc. with sweet chilli sauce! Ahh, food envy.
    Thanks for popping over to my blog! Now following you too and planning on having a good nose through your posts this evening :)
