Fried Rice with Egg and Chinese Sausage
This is for Bella Tigre aka E from Turin.
A simple Fried Rice with Egg and Chinese Sausage. I had leftover rice from the day before's curry and was wondering what to do with it, when I spotted my whole dozen of Lim Chee Guan sausages hanging in the kitchen...
2 cups cold cooked Jasmin or Basmati Rice
1-2 top quality Chinese sausages
1 clove Garlic
Half an Onion
A few drops of Sesame Oil (optional)
If you use a non-stick wok like me, just heat up the wok (medium to high) and add in the Chinese sausages (finely sliced), garlic and onion (diced).
A little oil will start coming out of the sausages and the garlic and onion will start to smell fragrant.
When everything's almost cooked, add in the cold cooked rice. Fried rice is not fried rice without some oil so dribble a little over the rice. Push everything aside and heat up a little more oil for the salted and beaten egg(s). When it's almost cooked, break it up and mix it well with the rice etc. Add in salt and pepper to taste.
If you wish add in a few drops of sesame oil before serving. The grains of rice should be intact and al dente, not soggy.
