Varied Basmati Fried Rice

Remember those leftover Basmati Rice from last weekend? Alrite, here are the variations of fried rice I came up with. Check them out.

(1) Recipe for Chili Sambal Fried Rice

Blended ingredients into a paste:
10 dried chilies, 1 onion, 3 garlics, little water and pinch of salt

cooked rice - leftover rice are better
1 onion - diced
2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp tomato sauce/puree
1 tbsp sweet chili sauce
1 tsp sugar
pinch of salt
1 hotdog - sliced
1 fishcake sliced
1 egg
Olive oil for frying

Heat up olive oil and sweat diced onions. Then put in 2 tbsp chili paste or more if you prefer it hotter. Fry till the chilli's dried up. Add in oyster sauce, tomato sauce, sugar and salt. Add in the fillings of hotdog, fishcake and brocolli. Stir for a cuple of minutes then add in 4-5 scoops of cooked rice. Mix well. Make a well in the centre and break in egg. Wait for the egg to be half cooked and mix well with rice. Note - if you mix the rice when the egg's still liquidish, you'll end up with a soggy fried rice. Unless if you prefer it like that. I like mine semi-dry.
