Chinese Fried Rice In 15 Minutes

Updated on September 6, 2010

Chinese Food Is Popular

Chinese food is popular not only in Asia,but in other parts of the world as well,thanks to the Chinatowns and the Chinese restaurants. Simple to cook,wholesome and tasty,Chinese items can be whipped up in a jiffy. The soups,starters(fried and steamed),and the main courses with rice or noodles as the main ingredient are all easy for anyone wanting to experiment with Chinese food at home. The restaurants use more of oil and a flavour enhancer called ajinomoto or monosodium glutamate which can be done away with, while preparing at home. It causes the Chinese food syndrome the next day,and also is bad for those suffering from high blood pressure.

A simple Chinese Fried Rice can be prepared from the following ingredients.

250 grams rice

4 eggs

1 joint chicken

12 small / medium sized prawns

1 capsicum

2 spring onions

1 carrot

1/4 tsp pepper

1 tsp soya sauce

chilli sauce

2 tbsp oil


Wash rice well and set aside.

Cut the carrot into little pieces,or grate it.

Cut spring onion into rings with part of green stem.

Clean and wash chicken and prawns separately.

Beat eggs well with salt and pepper.


Wash the rice well and cook in double the water.(One measure of rice cooks perfect in 2 measures of water).While cooking add a tsp of oil so as to keep the grains separate.

Boil chicken till tender. Remove and shred to small pieces.

Cook prawns in little water until done.

In a pan, heat the oil. 2 Chopped garlic flakes are added for flavour briefly. Fry the prawns and remove.

Add eggs,scramble and fry well. To this add the cooked rice,soya sauce and continue frying on high heat. Add shredded chicken,prawns,and vegetables,salt and pepper,and keep stirring till well mixed. If desired, add a pinch of ajinomoto. Stir in a bit of chilli sauce,and serve hot.
