Yangzhou Fried Rice

Over the past months, I have been teaching my daughter to cook simple Chinese's meals. So far, I have taught her how to whip-up simple meals like fried rice or noodles, and a couple of her favorite stir-fry green vegetables. Last weekend, she made Yangzhou Fried Rice and it turned out fantastic! As a beginner, I taught her to focus on cooking for one. This way, she doesn't have to worry about messing too much with the ingredients and the heat/fire that's so important in Asian cooking. It worked for her as she found the whole process less intimidating and extremely easy. Do try whipping up this fantastic fried rice at home yourself. :-)

Yangzhou Fried Rice


2 Cups Cooked Cold Rice
1 ½ Tbsp Peanut Oil
5 to 6 Medium Prawns, peeled
1 Large Clove of Garlic, chopped
1 Large Egg, lightly beaten
1/3 Cup Frozen Peas, thawed and drained
1 Tbsp Light Soy Sauce
Sea Salt to taste
Freshly Ground White Pepper
1 Stalk Scallion, chopped


Heat 1 Tbsp of oil over medium to high heat on a frying pan and fry prawns until they are cook. Dish out and set aside.

Add in the remaining ½ Tbsp of oil and fry the chopped garlic until golden brown in color. Toss in the rice and stir frequently. Then mix in the egg and gently move it around, make sure the rice is coated with the eggs. Add the peas, prawns, stir well and mix soy sauce, white pepper, and adjust the seasoning with sea salt. Serve immediately with some chopped scallion.

  1. Fan-tas-tic! Fried rice is such a great for-one dish, and a wonderful use of leftover rice and frozen peas -- not to mention anything else you've got 'round. This sounds great. Bravo to your daughter (and you, for showing her the ropes).

  2. Nothing like a good fried rice recipe!

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
