Here’s the recipe for making fried rice at home :
1 egg (whisked)
2 spring onions (use the 2 greens but only 1 white)
a pinch of salt
a tiny pinch of sugar
1 tbsp of neutral oil ( plus a few more to coat the pan before you start)
~250g of steamed rice (use either the method from this episode or the one from episode 7, also written below)
a few drops of light soy sauce
Instructions for making homemade fried rice :
Get the pan to medium heat (on mine it’s the setting “4” out of 9). Leave the skillet for a few minutes, for it to accumulate heat.
Coat it generously with oil, make sure the skillet is nicely coated. GEt that oil out in a bowl. Don’t discard it, you can use it again for the same purpose.
Add a tbsp of fresh oil to the pan.
Drop the egg in, and stir it vigorously. It should blend in, almost emulsify with the oil in the pan. Hard to describe but it kinda fluffs up int there.
Drop the rice before the egg is fully set.
Don’t lift the pan. Move fast. Use your spatula to break lumps gently, spread the rice, and then flip it on itself. Repeat.
When the rice starts dancing, add the seasoning, add the white part of the onions. Stir a little.
Now, Wake up and Crank up the heat to the max.
Drop the soy. Stir. Stir. Stir. Green part of onions. Stir. Stir. Stir. No more than a minute total. (chef Samuel did that for ten seconds but it was on a rocket stove)
Remember : It should steam and toast, but not smoke and burn.
Off the heat. Little more green spring onions on it. Eat asap.
