Fusion Fried Rice

I call this my Fusion Fried Rice, as it is practically a fusion of everything. I came up with this recipe few nights ago, when the only thing "cooked" I had in my fridge was rice. I had sandwich meat but no bread, loads of herbs (don't know why I buy all different kinds at the same time) and some veggie. So.... here is the result. The fusion of all the weird ingredients. You just have to try it to know how yummmm the result came out. :)

Servings: 4

  • Basmati Rice - 2 cups, cooked
  • New Carrots - 3, sliced thinly
  • Sweet peas - 1.5 cups
  • Eggs - 4
  • Roast Beef deli slices - 1 whole package (8 oz pack), chopped
  • Italian/ Flat Leaf Parsley - 1/3 cup, chopped
  • Cilantro - 1/3 cup chopped
  • Basil - 1 handful leaves, chopped
  • Onion - 1 med, chopped
  • Jalapeno - 1 , sliced
  • Garlic clove - 2 , minced
  • Soy sauce - 4 tbsp
  • Salt & Black pepper - to taste
  • 1. Prepare all the vegetables and the meat, by chopping them , set aside. In a bowl, beat the egg with a pinch of salt and black pepper, set aside.
  • 2. In a large non stick pan, heat 2 tbsp of oil, fry the eggs for about 1-2 min. Do not over cook them. Remove and set aside,
  • 3. Add the chopped roast deli meat to the pan, saute for 2-3 min with some black pepper and 1 tbsp of soy sauce. Remove and set aside with the eggs.
  • 4. Add 2 more tbsp of oil to the pan, heat. Add the onions and garlic. Saute till the garlic is fragrant. Add all the veggies, except the herbs. Add the remaining 3 tbsp of soy sauce. Saute for 4-5 min.
  • 5. Add the eggs, deli meat and rice to the pan. Stir to combine. Break any lumps of rice gently, do not mush up all the rice. Saute for 4-5 min on high heat.
  • 6. Since the soy sauce will be salty, taste for seasoning now. If needed add some salt and black pepper. Stir in all the herbs. Turn off the heat. Serve immediately.
