Yesterday evening, I went down to the kitchen and realised that I had to whip up another dish for the ones prepared earlier had been gobbled up for lunch. How fortunate I was to notice a bowl of cold rice on the kitchen counter. Well, since Mr KHz had mentioned his craving for fried rice, I finally came up with this idea. Since I have to finish my button mushrooms, let’s go fusion and here is the end product:
THAI-STYLE FRIED RICE WITH SALTED FISH WITH MUSHROOM OMELETTE
By the way, do they match? What do you think? Anyway, if you’re feeling under the weather, just whip up this simple fried rice recipe(owned by cheiza@Myresipi.com) as I’m very confident that it can definitely beat the blues.
3 cups of cooled, cooked rice
3cm piece of salted fish( I used salted mackerel )
1 onion(halved and thinly diced)
3 pips of garlic(bashed)
5 bird’s eye chillies (bashed)
2 long beans (cut into small pieces)
1/2 a carrot (diced)
2 tbsp of oyster sauce
1 tbsp of fish sauce (‘nampla’)
2 tbsp of cooking oil
salt (if necessary)
- Heat the oil in a wok. Then, put the salted fish. Using the back of your spatula, mash the salted fish and fry till fragrant and slightly crispy.
- Next, put in the onion, garlic and chillies and stir well. Put in the vegetables, oyster sauce and fish sauce and keep on stirring.
- Put in your rice and mix well. Have a taste in case you need to add more salt.
- Serve hot.
