Food craving at 1am of night? Want a quick fix? Try this recipe but make sure you stock up your things before hand.

This is a recipe which my Chinese aunt gave to me. This dish is popular in her family. It's full of proteins , carbs and fibre. I hope you like it.

Step 1: Ingredients

Green onions ( 6 tablespoons, I froze mine)
Boiled rice (1cup) ( make sure you boiled them ahead of time e.g a day ago)
Cabbage (hand full)
One egg
Capsicum ( yellow and red I used) 2 tablespoons
Chilli flakes
Black pepper
Oregano seasoning

I used sachets of dominos for chilli flakes and oregano seasoning ( feel free to omit it)

Step 2: Cooking

Add the raw egg in the rice and coat them well. Keep your vegetables ready if they are fresh. Now add oil in your vok and make it hot. Add your rice egg mixture and keep tossing. Making sure the rice don't stick together with each other as well as they don't break. It's best to avoid the spatula or any other kitchen utensil in the beginning. Toss the rice in the air above the pan. Use spatula if there are some stubborn lumps. Now once the rice begun to separate, add your salt, chilli flakes, oregano seasoning and toss well. Once each grain of rice is separate from another and it's no more sticky ( make sure your rice are not mushy or too hard due to over cooking. ) add in your vegetables. Toss and cook but make sure there crispness retained.
During this whole cooking,my flame was on high and I manually changed it when it was needed. Plate your rice out in a bowl. Your food for one is ready :D

Step 3: Final Thoughts

This makes your tummy full and it's pretty quick meal. You can use almost any vegetable you have at home. Or simply use egg rice and spices to make easy fried rice. I hope you enjoyed it.

    Any thoughts on using one of those air fryers to do fried rice?

    I saw a video from Tasty Borneo that uses an Actifry to make a similar chicken fried rice dish.. I'm thinking of doing something like that, but with (Forbidden) Black Rice, and finely chopped cauliflower. I'd probably use a tablespoon of Macadamia nut oil instead of the vegetable oil she used, but not sure how the cauliflower will hold up in the air fryer..

    never used an air fryer but i think it might work, secondly never ever used black rice so i don't know how they will turn out.

    I used simple basmati rice. You can use any type of rice. Short grain works too. Just avoid sticky rice.
