On a whim, I suggested buying Japanese rice so that I could cook garlic fried rice. My man readily agreed! We spoke about it before and he mentioned how much he missed eating it. So I googled how to cook Japanese rice online and, also, the garlic fried rice recipe. I tweaked it a little, as is the usual practice, to suit his palate 😛
Looks yummy, right? : ) So here’s the recipe.
To cook the rice:
Rinse 1 cup of rice grains 3 to 4 times till the water runs clear. Add 1 cup of chicken stock, 1 tablespoon of Japanese shoyu and 1.5 tablespoons of mirin. Stir through and cook. When the rice is fluffy, set aside to cool, or preferably overnight.
To cook the garlic fried rice:
Beat 2 eggs, stir in the cooked rice and let it sit. In the meantime, melt 2 cubes of butter in your skillet, mix in a little shoyu and mirin and fry 1 tablespoon chopped garlic, 1 chopped chilli padi and chopped spring onions for 1 to 2 minutes. Add peeled shrimp and fry till pink.
Next, stir in the eggy rice, add more mirin and shoyu and mix thoroughly. Once the egg is cooked, serve. Voila!
Wishing you fun,
