Riz cantonnis (mixed fried rice)
This version of mixed fried rice is such a fantastic Chinese recipe. Authentically pork, green peas is used in this recipe but, I have excluded it. This dark color is due to the use of dark soya sauce ( can use light soya sauce if light colored rice is preferred). Here goes the recipe....
Cooked rice - 2 cups
Carrots - 1 nos
Beans - 50 grams
Spring onions (chopped) - 1 cup
Wood mushroom (dried) - 30 grams
Prawns - 200 grams
Chicken (boneless, skinned) - 200 grams
Egg - 1 nos
Dark soya sauce - 2 tbsp
Black pepper powder - 1 tsp
Ajinomoto or salt for taste
Oil for cooking
Chopped carrots, beans, spring onions, finely. Soak wood mushroom in hot water for 2-3 min or till its fully expanded in size and keep aside. Heat oil in a wok and stir in chopped chicken and cook till its done. Similarly stir fry prawns, egg, carrot, beans separately ( one thing at a time) ad keep this aside. Heat oil in a wok, add 1/2 cup spring onions, and all the other ingredients one by one (which is stir fried earlier). Add cooked rice, dark soya sauce, pepper and ajinomoto or salt for taste and toss well. Garnish with remaining spring onions and serve.
Wood mushrooms are Chinese mushrooms available at Asian stores, supermarkets etc. Can add other veggies like sweet corn kernels, green peas etc.
