Hello food lovers!
You know me, I love food wherever it comes from. I was lucky enough to travel quite a bit and it really opened my culinary horizons.
I try to share that with you as much as I can. Invitation to a culinary trip then…
Singapore style fried rice!
This recipe has been recently shared by Jamie Oliver on the English television network Channel 4. This recipe comes directly from his website.
This Singapore style fried rice is a rather simple recipe. Prepare all your ingredients first, peel the ones that need to be peeled, cut them properly and after it will be quite quick.
The first time I made the recipe, I followed Jamie Oliver’s instructions by the letter in terms of quantities. We are 5 at home, good eaters, the recipe served 4 and we finally made two meals out of it!!
I think that Jamie was really hungry that day!! 😉 I adjusted the quantities, especially for the rice.
This being said, you get that this dish can be heated again if you have leftovers, simply in your microwave oven. And it’s a good thing when you don’t have much time to spend in the kitchen.
As far as veggies are concerned, take whatever you have left in your fridge (no tomato or red pepper though, it won’t match) but: aspargus, baby corn, brocoli, leak, courgette, pak choi cabbage, chive, carrot, cauliflower, etc…
I chose to make a saffron rice but it’s no obligation. I just like to yellow color of the rice in this dish… 🙂
A sauce pan to cook the rice (or a rice cooker),
A sauté pan for the eggs and vegetables,
A cutting board
And a sharp knife.
Culinary passeport in hand, let’s go to Singapore.
