Quick and easy Fried Rice

 Fried Rice is quick and easy to prepare and a great way to use up leftover rice. In this article, I describe the method I use based on watching Kylie Kwong’s cooking programs.

We cook our rice in an electric rice-cooker and always cook more than we need. The unused rice is packed into plastic “Chinese food” containers or moulded into onigiri (おにぎり)  shapes. The rice is then stored in the freezer.

Here is the recipe.


  • Leftover rice (remember to remove from freezer
  • 2 eggs
  • Vegetables finely chopped – choose from carrots, capsicum, snow peas. Experiment with the vegetables you have!
  • Frozen peas (optional)
  • Shallots finely chopped
  • Peanut oil
  • Soy sauce


Heat oil in wok. Beat egg then pour into hot oil. Allow to cook then remove and place on plate.

Add more oil if needed, then stir fry the vegetables.

Add soy sauce.

Add rice, breaking up the pieces and mixing in with the vegetables.

Add pepper, and more soy sauce if neeed.

Add finely chopped shallots.

Chop up the egg and thin strips and add to wok.

Stir then transfer to a serving bowl.
