BB Fried Rice

Since the only form of rice that Kimi is willing to exercise his jaw muscles is the flavoured kind, I've decided to make fried rice.

This was done the following day after the BB Chicken Rice as I had some rice left. The rice is so fragrant so I know it will make a yummy dish. Sorry, been so lax in blogging the past few weeks!

You can use plain rice or add some lemon grass & lemon leaf to flavour the rice during the boiling process if you wish.
If you find just serving fried rice is too dry, you can prepare a simple vegetable or miso soup to go with the rice!

Ingredients

  • Cooked white rice
  • Pumpkin or carrot diced and boil or steam till 50% done
  • Some green veg chopped finely
  • 1 tsp wolfberries (gou qi zi) soaked slightly till plump
  • Tuna fish/salmon or whatever protein you wish to use
  • 1 egg beaten
  • Some chopped garlic
  • Pepper, Kelp or light soya sauce and sesame oil
Method

  1. Heat a little oil in pan and add garlic, fry till fragrant.
  2. Throw in rice and fry, using spatula to separate the grains.
  3. Add the tuna fish. If using other fish/protein, do pre-fry and set aside and add in after frying rice in garlic.
  4. Stir in the boiled/steamed pumpkin and turn a few times.
  5. Push rice and ingredients to the side of pan.
  6. Add in the beaten egg, let it set a bit then mix in the rice and ingredients and fry lightly before adding the veg and wolfberries.
  7. Continue to fry till fragrant
  8. Season with pepper and kelp or a little soya sauce and sesame oil.
  9. SERVE WITH LOVE!

Tips

  • For babies who are willing to chew, you can omit boiling or steaming the carrot and just fry it till fragrant.
  • If using salmon, pre-fry and set aside before flaking fish to add to the rice. Do not overcook the protein if you intend to re-fry with the rice. Only cook till well done if you intend to add the ready fried rice.
  • Use medium high fire to get the nice wok fragrant and you must constantly stir the rice so that it will not burn.
  • If your cooked rice is too dry, you can add some water during the frying.
  • Experiment with different ingredients to see which your baby likes best.
