Weekend Fried Rice


The reason I call this weekend fried rice is because every now and then, you want to use everything in your fridge in one meal. Nothing like a big rice bowl full of yummies. ⁣

I collaborated with some lovely ladies today, please do go and check out their stories/feed for their recipes. @sherlockmooms @potsncurries @narimanq @faizaonaroll



  • 2 tbsp of butter used in 1 tbsp quantities ⁣

  • 2 tbsp of olive oil⁣

  • 3 cloves of garlic, 1/2 an inch of ginger minced, 1/4th of an onion chopped ⁣

  • Veggies: chopped carrots, celery, basil, spring onions, cilantro ⁣

  • Protein used: beef steak. But you can use whatever you have on hand or keep it vegetarian⁣

  • 2 beaten eggs ⁣

  • Spices: sesame seeds, salt, pepper, 1/2 a chicken stock cube⁣

  • Sauces: 1 tbsp each of soy sauce, dark soy sauce, oyster sauce, sambal olek (or any spicy sauce)⁣

  • 1.5 cups of boiled rice. Best if rice is a day old ⁣

  • 1 tsp of toasted sesame oil for fragrance⁣

  • Handful of chopped basil and cilantro for garnish ⁣


In a heavy bottomed wok add 1 tbsp of butter and olive oil over medium/high heat. Add in the garlic ginger and onions. Fry till fragrant and add in the veggies. Stir fry for 2 mins because you want them to remain crunchy. Move them to one side of the pan, add a touch more oil and the beaten eggs to scramble. Now add in all the sauces and spices and mix.... gently fold in the rice. Pour the sesame oil over the rice and the remaining tablespoon of butter. Serve hot with garnishes. I love chili flakes and a big squeeze of lime juice with mine. Saath koi movie - it wasn’t top gun if you were wondering. Although I feel like I’m in the very silent minority that hasn’t seen this movie. Have you seen top gun? Do you think I’ll succumb and watch it this weekend? Lemme know. Happy weekend my jaanis and jaanus
