Burnt Garlic Fried Rice Japanese Style

Burnt Garlic Fried Rice Japanese Style

The brilliant part of flexible eating is that you can eat anything. Like this isn't a cheat meal. On my programs it's a fancier rice. Which is fine. While it's not a meal on its own, it's perfectly okay to eat even while trying to lose weight !!

The power of flexible eating !! 

Here is the recipe

Ingredients :

  • 1 cup raw rice to be cooked/boiled and kept aside 
  • 2 eggs (optional)
  • 1/2 chopped spring onions 
  • 2-3 tsp of light soya sauce / 2 tsp dark soya 
  • 1/2 tsp sugar 
  • 1/4 tsp pepper powder 
  • Salt to taste 
  • 1 whole garlic cut into chips ( picture at the end)
  • 1 whole garlic chopped into small pieces 
  • 2 tbsp oil 


How to make the eggs (optional)

  • Break the eggs into a bowl add pinch of salt , beat the eggs and keep aside 
  • Take a kadhai /wok add the 2 tsp oil 
  • Heat the oil when the oil becomes a little hot add the eggs and leave it 
  • Will be like a round omlette , when the omlette starts to cook then break it and stir fry .The eggs should be soft .
  • Remove and keep aside 

The main recipe

  • In the same kadhai/wok add the oil 
  • Then add the garlic into the cold oil (which have been cut like chips see below)

  • When the garlic chips become beige in colour remove and keep aside to use as a garnish later
  • In the same oil add the chopped small garlic and stir fry till it becomes beige brown 
  • Then add the cooked rice and stir fry for few minutes 
  • Then add the soya sauce and pepper and stir fry for few minutes

  • Mix it in well 
  • Now add the chopped spring onions and stir fry for few minutes .
  • Lastly add the scrambled egg and mix it in .
  • Done 
  • Garnish with the garlic chips on top .


Notes : 
Rice : cold leftover rice works well here too. If you have a local rice like red rice, you can use that too to get a better and more chewy type texture.
