So with the many rounds of steamboat feastings, I guess it is a norm for households to have leftovers for a meal the next day.
Since I have a substantial amount of bak kwa (given to us by my SIL and a colleague), plus some prawns and leftover rice, I decided that bak kwa fried rice will be the one dish I can whip up with the few ingredients.
Easy peasy and our one meal is then settled.
Bak Kwa Fried Rice
Recipe by Noob Cook
- 2 tbsp cooking oil
- 4 cloves garlic peeled and minced
- 4 shallots peeled and finely chopped (I did not use shallots)
- 400 grams cooked rice (1 cup uncooked rice cooked in 1 cup of water) refrigerated overnight
- 3/4 cup frozen vegetables thawed
- 2 eggs beaten and seasoned with 1/4 tsp light soy sauce and white pepper powder
- 50 grams cooked frozen prawns (shrimps) thawed
- 80 grams bak kwa cut with scissors to small bite-sized squares
- 1/4 cup chopped spring onions
- 1/4 tsp salt to taste
- white pepper to taste
- Heat oil in wok, stir fry shallots and garlic until shallots turn translucent.
- Add rice and thawed vegetables. Stir fry for a minute until well mixed.
- Pour egg evenly over rice. Stir fry on high heat until the egg is semi dry. Add shrimps and bak kwa; stir fry briefly until the egg is just cooked.
- Add spring onions and stir though to mix evenly. Season the fried rice with salt and white pepper.
