Chinese Sambal Belachan Fried Rice

Rice...? rice... oh Rice! I love rice!
I want to eat rice, what is better than rice? For me, rice is EVERYTHING.
Chicken rice, oh my favourite.
Clay pot rice, awesome.
Nasi Lemak, wordless. Salivating...Can't think of a word for it.
Fried rice is my delicacy in my own world. I can proudly say that at least I can fry ... rice. ;)

This recipe is roughly the same the Fried Rice with Mix Vege. Slightly different is that, this time, I don't use the nasi goreng paste, just onions & garlic, plus SAMBAL Belachan. I still have plenty of them in my kitchen, so why not use them?
4 Servings
4 bowl of cooked rice (cook and keep in the fridge overnight)
Mixed vege - 1 big bowl
Salt and Sambal Belachan to taste
Dark soy sauce for colouring
3 tbs olive oil
2 red onions & 5 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tsp Chicken Stock Granule to fry onions and garlic

  1. Fry mixed vege without oil to drain water, add some granules & sambal for flavouring, take out and put aside
  2. Medium high heat, fry onions and garlic with olive oil and sesame oil, until it caramelised or slightly brown, add 1 tbsp of sambal belachan, add in mix vege, continue stirring for 2 mins.
  3. Put in rice, stir it until even, add a dash of dark soy sauce for colouring, continue frying for 5 mins
  4. Taste and add soy sauce when needed.

Mamamia tips:

  1. Fry an egg together to enhance its flavour.
  2. Must be quick when frying, keep on stirring, press down the rice if it stick together. DO NOT ADD WATER!
  3. Serve with stir-fry vege, mamamia!

The fried rice looks very appetizing.
I like those simple tasty home dishes very much, and esp. with rice, which is a great help to deal with some leftover, like BBQ chicken, or some seafood stir-fry, etc. And peas and mushrooms...hmm...I guess I know what I want to have for the lunch today....

Food for tots: I cheated a bit by using the ready-made Sambal Belachan. If time permits, I will like to make my own too!
