Fried rice paradise using the rice cooker :)
So I've cooked a lot of extra rice to be frying rice for dinner tonight. And only half of that was going to fit into my happycall pan. But then, there's always the rice cooker.
And after tonight's attempt at using the rice cooker, I have decided that I would forever be frying rice in the rice cooker. Until further notice.
1 tbsp of oil + 1 tbsp of sesame oil
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
Half a yellow onion, diced
Overnight rice (Filled a 1.5L ice cream tub)
1 cube of Knorr chicken stock dissolved in about 500ml of water
Five slices of Luncheon meat, diced
Dry fried white bait, 80g to 100g
1 tube of Egg tofu, diced
1 egg, beaten
Dash of pepper
Set the rice cooker to 'Cook' function and once hot, add the oil into the pot.
Fry the garlic and onion till fragrant before adding in the luncheon meat, white bait and egg tofu.
Add in the rice, breaking it up as you add it in.
Pour in the stock and a dash of pepper. Stir the rice till everything is mixed thoroughly. (Be gentle, you don't want to break up all your luncheon meat and egg tofu further)
Close the rice cooker and let it cook till it pops up to the 'Warm' function.
Add in the beaten egg and give it another stir to make sure everything's well mixed. (Use more eggs if you'd like. Daddy would've loved loads of eggs.) Wait for a bit till you get to switch it to 'Cook' function again and once it pops up to 'Warm', turn off the switch and you're all good to go :)
And there you have it. Fried rice paradise from the rice cooker, no less!
