WHAT I COOKED TODAY

Monday, 19 January 2015
This January, I've been good and been cooking a lot for dinner instead of eating out. 

I love cooking and since the beginning of the year, I have tried to add a bit of variety to my cooking and I have to say that I am enjoying this little project of mine. Here is my easy peasy recipe for the Special Egg Fried Rice which I made for dinner tonight, accompanied by some stir fried Kai Lan (Chinese Vegetable) and Chinese Sausages.



Special Fried Rice - Shirl Style! 

Ingredients: 
- Already cooked rice (from the day before) - enough for 3 ppl
- 1 pack of Tesco Finest Jumbo Raw Frozen Prawns 240g ( Defrosted!) 
- 1 onion chopped
- 1 clove garlic chopped
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Cup of Frozen Sweet Corn and Peas
- Soya Sauce
- Sunflower oil for frying 
- Chopped spring onions for sprinkling at the end! 

Method:
- Defrost the jumbo prawns, wash thoroughly and drain. Add in some salt and pepper. Leave aside. 
- In a large frying pan ( or Wok if you have one) heat a little oil. Start by frying the chopped onions and garlic. When nice and getting the golden colour, remove from pan onto a side plate.
- Heat some more oil in the pan. When very hot, add in the raw jumbo prawns. Be aware that they cook fairly quickly and you do not want to overcook them! 
- As the prawns are turning pink, break in the 2 eggs and stir the pan using your wooden spoon as if doing scrambled eggs. 
- Add in the fried onions and garlic, the cup of frozen sweet corn and peas.
- Finally add the cooked rice and mix them all together. It can get quite messy at this point if your pan is not big enough!
- For seasoning, add in 2 tablespoons of soya sauce. This also adds some colour to the rice. 
- When you can see that the rice is now steaming hot, it is ready!! 

Here you are : Special Fried Rice 

Sprinkle the chopped spring onions and it's ready to be eaten! You can serve this with any veggie you have in the fridge as a side. I had some Kai Lan so I made steamed Kai lan, but it can be anything from steamed broccoli or any chinese vegetable.

Et Voila! A very simple recipe for you to replicate at home!
