I sometimes cook extra basmati rice so that I can keep some in the fridge overnight just to make fried rice the next day
My kitchen always has frozen peas, frozen prawns and a variety of cooking spices. I can be a random cook and tend to make whatever type of food I am craving, provided I have the necessary ingredients.
I enjoy cooking fried rice since it can be a mish-mash of whatever you have available in the fridge, freezer and kitchen pantry. Here’s something I whipped up for dinner a few days ago.
1 cup of basmati rice, cooked and stored in the fridge overnight
1/4 cup frozen prawns
1/2 cup frozen peas
A drizzle of of cooking oil (olive oil, sunflower or vegetable oil)
2 tablespoon tomato ketchup
1 tbs cajun spice
2 tbs soy sauce
1/2 tbs smoked paprika or fresh chillies if you prefer
Follow the following sequential steps to make a tasty fried rice dish.
