Do you know how to cook the authetic Chinese Fried Rice with Egg (蛋炒饭)?

05 Jun

Here’s how.

A) Use leftover rice (or if you do not have any, cook the rice a day before and store it in the refrigerator overnight)
B) Make sure you use long grain rice.

1) Before you start to heat up your deep pan or wok, add some vegetable oil and 2 beaten eggs into the rice, allow them to soak into the rice for 20 minutes. (Yup, you could use a big mixing bowl to stir the oil and beaten eggs into the rice.)
2) Now, chop all the other ingredients you want to add into the fried rice such as green onions, carrots, onions, garlic, ham, etc.
3) Heat up your deep frying pan or wok, add some vegetable oil. No cold pan/wok can do a good job.
4) Stir-fry chopped onion and garlic first, then add carrots, and ham. Add salt and pepper to taste.
5) Now when the ingredients are cooked in the pan, add the egg-and-oil soaked rice into the pan. Stir-fry them all very quickly.
6) Add the chopped green onion last before you dish the fried rice onto a plate to serve.


蛋炒饭 – 传统做法

蛋炒饭将水煮沸后,把洗干净的米倒入水中过滤捞出(一下下就可以了); 然后,把米放在炉子上蒸熟,再放入冰箱冷藏2-3小时,并且不要加盖;炒饭前饭内加少许素油拌匀,让饭粒分开,再倒入一半蛋液拌匀浸泡20分钟;旺火油锅下拌好油和蛋液的米饭,迅速炒匀炒干,使鸡蛋包住每粒米 饭,行话叫“金包银”。

然后下熟青豆及跑马蛋(一般蛋液倒入中火油锅内,不要用炒铲而用筷子在锅里迅速作圆周运动搅拌蛋液,使蛋炒成细小蛋松颗粒起锅,俗 称“跑马蛋”。),加盐、葱花,翻炒片刻后出锅。 这样做出的蛋炒饭,不仅米饭香和蛋香不会混合,而且米是一粒粒分开,不会粘在一起的。
