Sausage Fried Rice


* 1.5 cups cooked and cooled rice
* 2 sausages diced (about 1/2 a cup)
* 1/2 cup cut green beans
* 1/4 cup shallots thinly sliced
* 2 tbsp tamari sauce (sub: light soy sauce)
* freshly ground pepper and salt to taste
* 2 tbsp vegetable oil
* For the spice paste

* 1 large shallot
* 2 cloves of garlic
* 2 large dry red chillies

# Eggs - 1 per person

Method(How to Cook)

Grind the shallots, garlic and red chillies with a little water to form a smooth paste.

Place a large wok or a deep frying pan on the stove. When the pan is hot, add the oil and swirl to cot the pan. When the oil is hot, add the diced sausages and fry till the pieces are brown. Remove the sausage pieces with a slotted spoon and keep aside.

Add sliced shallots to the pan and fry till brown, remove from the pan and keep aside.

Add the green beans to the pan and saute till crispy and keep aside.

Reduce the heat to medium, and add the spice paste to the remaining oil in the pan and fry till all the liquid is evaporated.

Add the cooked rice to the pan, increase the heat and mix well to make sure the rice is coated with the spice paste. Add the tamari sauce and pepper and mix well to coat the rice.

Add the prepared green beans and sausage to the rice and stir well, and cook on high heat for about 3-4 minutes.

Remove from the heat.

To fry an egg, pour enough oil into a frying pan or wok to form a generous coating on the bottom. Heat on high heat, when the oil is hot enough, break an egg into the pan. Season with salt and pepper. When the edges turn golden brown, remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

Serve the rice hot, topped with a fried egg and sprinked with the fried shallots. Garnish with cucumber and tomato slices if needed. A hearty and filling meal on its own.

Vegetarian option - omit the sausage and add plenty of mixed vegetables like diced cabbage, bean sprout, carrots etc.

This hearty meal was exactly what I needed this cold and lonely night. My usual home alone special salad wouldn’t have cut it today, sometimes a girl just got to have her meat and rice.
