First efforts at making Fried Rice at home – well, first at making any rice! πŸ˜„ Since I’ve lived in Asia 6 years now, thought I ought to try 🍚 Came out DELICIOUS! It’s seriously as good as any I’ve ever tried before!

.
Rice was shockingly easy:
+ Cups of rice (your choice) – I mixed rice types & it came out good βœ…
+2 Cups if Water per Cup of rice
+ Salt (I used a shaker and put about 4 twists)

Get water really boiling (high medium heat) for a few minutes. Throw in rice & salt. Put on lid and leave at same heat for 18 minutes. Don’t take off the lid! Turn off but leave covered until pan is cooled. Refrigerate overnight for #FriedRice

Fried Rice:
+3-4 Cups of Cooked Rice (next day)
+1 Bag of frozen mixed vegetables or mix fresh of (corn, peas, carrots)
+2-3TBSP Oil for frying (Olive, Sesame, Vegetable)
+ 3-4T Soy Sauce (add more to cover as needed – it goes a long way)
+ Fresh Garlic (sliced thinly to taste)

Cook vegetables and garlic first in oil until done, stirring occasionally. Add rice and stir in slowly until rice is thoroughly warmed and mixed in. Add Soy Sauce. Warm a little longer. SERVE! 🍚🍚

Surrounded by the peaceful rest of the rising mountains, the little town in turn sheltered the still of the waters.
