This is the recipe I watched my dad cook as a child, he taught me how to cook this many years ago.
Ingredients: In this recipe I used
4 cloves chopped garlic
1 diced onion,
1/2 diced capsicum
1 grated carrot
1 chopped shallot
1 can of corn
2 cups of long grain rice
soy sauce, 2 stock cubes, salt & pepper to taste.
some vegetable oil to fry rice & a jug of boiled water.
Step #1. Prepare ingredients
Step #2. Add a little oil to pan, fry the crispier veggies first, onion, capsicum, garlic adding the other veggies in turn. I add the grated carrot & shallots at the end of cooking. Remove the veggies from pan.
Step #3. Add some oil to hot pan, then add in rice, stirring until lightly browned. Next step is to add some of the boiled water gradually to pan. Stir & let the rice absorb the water, adding more water as it is absorbed. I add the stock cubes, salt & soy sauce at this stage. As the rice becomes tender, I put the lid on to allow the moisture be absorbed. The rice shouldn't be soggy & have a slightly nutty texture.
Mix the vegetables into the rice, topping with some of the green shallots leaves. You can also use fried onions for more flavour & texture.
I cooked some Honey Soy Chicken Drumstick in the oven to be served with the Rice.

Fried Rice is a great meal to prepare ahead of time. Great for parties, snacks, lunch boxes & tomorrow nights dinner. Hope you enjoy cooking it, using whatever you have in stock or to the families tastes.
