Fried Rice is one of the simplest things to make.  The best part is that there is no fixed recipe; add as much or as little as you like, and every time you have a brand new recipe, and a brand new taste.

We had some cousins coming over for Christmas, the menu was Chinese, and so was born this nutty version!


  • Rice- 1 cup (cooked)
  • Cashew nut, roasted- 3-4 tbsp
  • Ginger, grated- 2 tsp
  • Garlic, sliced- 2-3 cloves
  • Spring onion, chopped- 2 onions.
  • Chilli flakes- 1 tsp
  • Light Soy Sauce- 1 tbsp
  • Pepper powder- 1/2 tsp
  • Salt- to taste
  • Oil- 2 to 3 tbsp


Step 1

Heat oil in a wok.

Step 2

Add in the cashews, ginger, garlic, chillies and spring onions. Stir fry for 1 minute.

Step 3

Add in the cooked rice and stir fry for 5 minutes. If you want to dd spring onion greens, you could add them now. It is best to use cooled, cooked rice. If you add hot rice, it tends to break. I think the secret to making a good fried rice, is to use rice that has ben sitting overnight in the fridge, basically because it does not have any moisture.

Step 4

Add in the soy sauce, stir-fry for 1 minute. Adjust the salt according to taste.

Step 5

Serve hot.
