One day when I was at home and feeling hungry in the afternoon, I thought that I would cook something easy to stuff my hunger. When I opened my refrigerator I only found the left over of the morning rice, some eggplants, few eggs, cabbage and half pack of cooked sliced ham.
I thought… “well… I’ll try to make something from all these things”, then I came up with the idea of making the fried rice, beside I don’t cook fried rice most of the time, especially my hubby is not very fond with fried rice. Fried rice is the most favorite dish in Indonesia.
Surprisingly, this cooking really came up very good and delicious, the taste of the eggplant was very delicate after it was mixed with other ingredients, really… really… worth the try
- 1 bowl of steamed rice. If you are making a new steamed rice, make sure that you cool it off before you use it as the fried rice will taste better with the cold rice.
- 1 Medium size of eggplant, slice it about 1/2 cm width
- 1 sliced of ham (sometimes I like to put 2 sliced because I like ham), slice it lengthwise
- 1 egg, whisked
- Half cup of chopped cabbage
- 1 small onion, chop finely
- 1 pc chilly (optional)
- 1 tsp soya sauce
- 1/2 tsp manchester sauce (optional)
- 1/2 tsp salt or as per taste
- 1 tb oil
How to make:
- Put the oil in the pan and heat it
- Fry the onion and chilly until brownish
- Add the ham and fry until it is cooked
- Add cabbage and eggplant and mix for about 2-3 minutes until soft
- Add the egg, leave it half done before mix it. Some people likes to fry the egg first, but I like to put egg last so the egg will mixed with other ingredients and this will give better taste.
- Add the rice and mix finely
- Add the salt, soya sauce, manchester sauce and mix
- Keep mix on the medium flame for the next 2-3 minutes until the sauce really blend properly with the rice
- serve hot
For One person, to cook for 2 persons just double the ingredients
