This is a special fried rice. It is special not because of any special ingredients but because it was cooked by my daughter, and the photos were also taken by her. I was very busy and she offered to cook lunch for all of us. How sweet of her! I think it’s a very good opportunity for her to learn, at least something simple. I was impressed by the presentation, too. It actually tasted very delicious, even though it looks very simple. The texture and flavour was very well balanced. She used some celery leaves for garnishing. I guess that was all that she could find in the fridge!
I do hope that my children will learn more cooking before they leave home one day. They love my cooking and I know that should they ever need help, they have my blog to refer as almost all the food on my blog are simple, easy and quick. All the food here are what they have been eating at home all the time. At least I’m glad that they have come to know and accept that home cooked food is always the best….higher quality and way cheaper than restaurant food.
So far they have cooked on several occasions. I remember when I fell very ill with tummy upset, they cooked Teriyaki Salmon Jacket Potato and Baked Spring Chicken And Egg Bok Choy. They also make carrot and apple juice. That was impressive. At least I’m glad to know that they will cook proper meals for themselves. I don’t have to stock up cooked meals in the freezer if I have to be away.
2C cooked rice
2 eggs (beaten)
1C frozen sweet corn (thawed and cooked))
8 crabsticks (cut into shorter lengths)
fried garlic or shallot oil
Heat up some oil and pan fry the chopped crabstick until lightly browned. Dish it up. Heat up some garlic or shallot oil in a frying pan. Add the rice and keep frying until fragrant. Add the soya sauce and pepper powder and continue to fry.
Add the crabsticks and sweet corn to the rice and mix well. Pour in the beaten eggs and continue to stir. Add some dried herbs for added flavour. Adjust the seasoning according to your taste. Dish it up and enjoy with a glass of cold lemon drink or a cup of hot Chinese tea, depending on the weather condition.
If you like, you can also add meat like roast, char siu or sea food for added flavour.
