Stir fried rice "Chahan" (Brunch on 30 Aug)

Returned from Scotland and need some light brunch to recover our stomach from too much red meat.What we had in our kitchen was frozen rice, frozen pork belly, spring onions and some eggs. They were the very ingredients of stir-fried rice, "Chahan"!!


2 eggs
100g sliced pork belly or bacon
2 spring onions
2 bowls of cooked rice
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
1 tablespoon of sesame oil
salt and peper


1. Chop spring onion and pork into small pieces. Beat eggs in a small bowl. If the rice is frozen, put it into microwave for 2 mins
2. Heat up a large frying pan at high temperature, spread 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and pour the egg. Stir the egg as frequently as possible to make dry-scrambled egg. Once it is done, store the fried egg into a bowl to empty the pan
2. spread the rest of vegetable oil and stir fry the pork and rice till for 5-6 mins
3. Add spring onion, fried egg, soy sauce, sesame oil, salt and pepper, stir well and serve.

I also made ginger soup. 


Boil water (400cc), put chopped spring onion and grated ginger (2 teaspoons), add salt, black pepper, fish sauce, vinegar and thicken the soup with cornflour (1 tablespoon) dissolved in two tablespoons of water. Add a beaten egg in the end.

Chahan (stir fried rice) is a very common dish in Japanese family dinning. In the film Tampopo, this is well described.  

Total time to prepare: 15 mins
Total cost: 30p for eggs and spring onion
