Chinese Tiny Oyster Fried Rice

23 Nov

It’s never really my deal to eat chinese dried oysters. However, one day someone bought actually some over and elaborated how nice the dried oysters could be as ingredients for the ala ordinary Chinese Fried Rice. Having to keep them in the fridge for the longest time, I finally decided to give it a try.

The outcome? It was actually quite nice, maybe because I cook it myself. My hubby actually added some Tabasco sauce to it too. haha..

Did you know that oyster can boost the immune system response? The oyster accumulates zinc to much higher levels than any other animal known. It’s unbelievable. By the way, you should give it a try yourself, and here’s the recipe to share:

Ingredients:
1 cup Wild Sarawak Rice, rinse & clean
3/4 cup White Rice, rinse & clean
12 Dry Oyster, rinse & clean
1 Onion, diced
1/2 Carrot, diced
8-10 French Beans, diced
1 red chili padi, removed seeds & sliced
1 Tbsp Sesame Oil
4 Tbsp Cooking Oil
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
Salt & Pepper

Methods:
1. Place 1 Tbsp cooking oil into pan and heat up using low-fire, put in the oyster to fry it and allows it to bring out the flavour and smell, add a pinch of salt. Off the fire, let cool down for about 2 minutes. Add in the rice into the pan, mixed together with the oyster. Then transfer it to rice cooker, add in 2 cups of water to cook the oyster rice.

2. Heat up a pan, add 3 Tbsp Cooking oil and 1 Tbsp Sesame oil into the cooking pan, heat it up using medium-fire for 2-3minutes. Follow by french bean, carrot onion, chili padi, soy sauce, salt and pepper. Stir fry all the ingredient for a minute or two.

3. Once the rice is cooked, place all the cook ingredients into the rice cooker. Mix it well. It’s ready to be serve. Yummy.

Note: You may use any kind of rice that you want, even Brown rice. It’s freestyle. Just cook the rice liked how you normally cook it and cook all other ingredients and mix it together. Have fun!
