Chinese Fried Rice

Who doesn’t like Chinese food? Well, I guess most of us do. This is an easy Chinese fried rice recipe.


1 and 1/2 cups of rice (boiled and refrigerated for a day)

1/2 cup of cabbage (shredded)

3-4 sticks of green scallions (diced for cooking and garnish)

5-6 cloves of garlic (minced)

1-2 carrots (diced)

1/2 of bell pepper (diced)

6-7 water chestnuts (canned)

5-6 bamboo shoots (canned)

5-6 baby corns (fresh or canned)

1/3 block of extra firm tofu (roasted in flat pan)

6-7 broccoli florets (cut and cleaned)

cilantro leaves (for cooking and garnish)

lemon wedges (for garnish)


1 tablespoon of cornflour

3 tablespoon of dark soy sauce

1-2 tablespoon of chill garlic sauce

2-3 tablespoon of rice vinegar

2-3 tablespoon of oil (olive oil+toasted sesame oil)

2 pinch of ajinomoto

salt and black pepper (crushed pepper corns)


Take a pan. Put oil, half of the diced scallions and garlic. After a while add carrots, cabbage, bell pepper, chestnuts, bamboo shoots, broccoli florets, baby corns, and half of the cilantro. Now add cornstarch, soy sauce, rice vinegar, chili garlic sauce, ajinomoto, grounded salt and crushed blackpepper (proportion of crushed peppercorns should be more than usual in this recipe). It will provide heat to the recipe.

Now add one day old refrigerated rice and roasted extra firm tofu

(Please Note: While you boil the rice, make sure that they are little firm like 3/4th done. Also apply little oil before refrigerating.)

Once you mix everything, don’t stir it for a longer time. You just want to integrate everything nicely. Now serve the fried rice with garnishes.
