Pre-cook the rice, (rice is always better used reheated especially in this sort of dish), can be cooked the day before. Before use fluff up with a fork. Plain rice or Fried rice is ideal to freeze & re-heats well in a microwave or in a wok (or pan). I always make more than I need so I have some to freeze for a quick meal .
Decide which ingredients you are to use, dice into small pieces.
Pre-cook any items that need to be cooked, keep them warm.
Heat the peas through, drain when ready to use.
Make an omelette and dice.
When ready to make the fried rice, heat some butter in a Wok or large pan, add beaten egg and stir until slightly scrambled but still quite wet, Stir in about half of the rice and quickly mix to allow the egg to coat the rice then add the remaining rice and stir well, you will need to add some oil to the pan, add as necessary to allow ingredients not to dry out or burn. Or reheat the rice, pour beaten egg over it and leave for a minute or so, before stirring in to the rice. (Both methods work well).
Add all the other ingredients to the pan, add any seasoning, soy sauce (basically any thing you feel will enhance the dish, you can change seasonings to suit your tastes).
Stir over a high heat until all the ingredients are thoroughly heated. (If you add more butter to the dish it will help to make the rice crispier).
• Fried Rice takes longer to prepare than to cook the dish. You can use any or all of the above. You can make this dish an all in one meal or serve with chops, chicken, gammon etc.
• Cook the quantity of rice you would normally cook and add the other ingredients.
• As with all cooking adapt and season to your taste.
• Serve on its own, or with another meat.
• Freezes well, defrost and reheat.
