singapore fried rice recipe

i make singapore fried rice similar to the way i make singapore fried noodles. this fried rice dish is spicy and tastes too good. you don’t need any accompanying dish with it. you can serve singapore fried rice with any sauce of your liking or even serve it plain.

to make singapore fried rice, you need cooked rice. you can steam or cook rice before or use leftover rice. if using leftover rice, then add 3 to 3.5 cups of leftover rice.

when cooking rice for recipes like these, the rice grains are cooked till al dente. i generally cook the rice grains well as i do not want any stomach upsets in the family, which can happen if the rice grains are even a bit uncooked. the flip side of this is that when mixing the rice grains break. i care more about the health than the looks of the recipe and it is fine with me if the rice grains break while cooking.

while making such recipes where a lot of veggies are used, you can use a food chopper or a food processor to save time and effort on cutting the vegetables.

this is a spicy recipe as red chilies are used, which also gives smoky pungent notes in the recipe. to reduce the spiciness you can add less red chilies and less of the sriracha sauce or red chilli sauce.
