Asian Spice Mixes: Fried Rice

Chinese Fried rice seasoning mix recipe

ingredients for chinese fried riceI got this Chinese Fried Rice recipe from a Filipino colleague and I enjoy the flavor that the soy sauce and sesame oil gives to the rice. Asian style fried rice is one of my favorite international cuisine and it’s nice to finally have a recipe that works for me.

You can easily find soy sauce and sesame oil in Nigeria in large stores like Shoprite, Park ‘n’ Shop, Amigo etc., and if I’m not mistaken I think I found soy sauce in Wuse Market in Abuja as well



2 cups long grain rice
2 whole garlic cloves
2-3 bay leaves
1 small or 3⁄4 cup onion, diced
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 eggs, lightly beaten
4 tablespoons soy sauce
sesame oil (2 tablespoons)
Two drops soy sauce (for eggs)
Two drops sesame oil (for eggs)
2 spring onion stems, finely chopped
1⁄2 cup long beans finely chopped
1⁄2 cup bell pepper, finely chopped
Salt, to taste


cooking chinese fried rice Wash rice thoroughly and parboil.

Add garlic cloves, bay leaves, and 2 dashes of salt to water and bring to a boil.

Add parboiled rice and boil till done. Discard garlic cloves and bay leaves. Set rice aside.

Mix beaten eggs with 4 drops of soy sauce and 4 drops of sesame oil.

In a small frying pan heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil, pour egg mixture and cook.

Once egg sets and puffs, turn over the other side and cook briefly; scramble the egg and set aside.

In a large frying pan or wok, heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil on medium heat; add onions and stir-fry until onions turn a nice translucent color about 5 minutes.

how to make chinese fried riceAdd long beans and bell peppers; stir-fry for 2 minutes.

Add cooked rice and spring onion stems, tossing to mix well; stir-fry for 3 minutes.

Add 4 tablespoons of soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of sesame oil and scrambled eggs to rice mixture and fold in; stir-fry for 1 minute.

Check for seasoning, serve and enjoy.

Things To Note About This Recipe

1. You can use any other vegetable you like such as carrots, peas, sweet corn, snap peas etc.Just make sure you cut them into small pieces.

2. Sesame oil has a high burning point so only add it to the rice, don’t cook or fry with it.

3.Soy sauce already has salt so you can do without salt or add it only if you feel it’s necessary.

4.You can also add small pieces of cooked meat or shrimps to the recipe; you would add and fry them some minutes after frying the onions
