Fried rice

Some will call this vegetable rice but I've always known as just plain old fried rice. Yummy yummy rice!! I love how versatile rice is lol. You can do so much with it.

Ingredients: 

  • 4cups of white rice
  • 3 carrots
  • 3 stalks of scallions (also known as spring onions)
  • 1 green pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • Seasoning salt 
  • Soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup of oil
Method:

Drying out the rice
  1. Cook rice, when it's ready dish it out in a tray or bowl so that it can dry up(need it as dry as possible,you don't want sticky rice)
  2. Chop all vegetables. (You can grate the carrots, because sometimes chopping carrots into those tiny cubes can be very tiresome :-) lol)
  3. By now your rice should be fully dried up, time to make some fried rice :-) lol
  4. In a non stick frying pan/sauce pan(anything big enough that will make the mixing easier), pour a tablespoon of oil. 2 tablespoons of beaten eggs and scramble the eggs, and add a handful of vegetables, stir for a about a minute
  5. Add your rice, stir for about 2 minutes
  6. Pour in a small amount of soy sauce, stir it till its brown, if the rice is still white, add a little more soy sauce
  7. Add a teaspoon of seasoning salt , stir for about 5minutes,taste(if salt isn't enough add another teaspoon more of seasoning salt) , pour in a foil pan or bowl and repeat from number 4 till there is no more white rice and vegetables
  8. Enjoy :-) 
Chopped carrots (you can do this if you have lots of time to spare lol)

    Grated carrots very fast and easier than the chopping lol
