Fried Rice
  1. Chop garlic put them in a separate bowl.

  3. Place frying pan on medium heat with vegetable oil. Wait until it’s hot. Then, put chopped garlic and fry until it turns a dark yellow color (not brown mostly like 3 minutes) and smells good.

  4. After garlic is cooked put all prepared vegetables into a pan, gradually stir fry them. Then lower a heat and cover them let them steam for 3-4 minutes.

  5. Make sure all vegetables are cooked and soft (if not steam them another couple minutes) then turn up a stove to high heat, then add the shrimp fry them along with vegetables.

  6. Lower the heat to medium, then add all cooked rice. Season with garlic powder, onion powder, sugar, pepper and oyster sauce (all seasonings can be adjusted, it depends on what do you prefer mine is kinda neutral).

  7. Make sure everything in your pan is cooked and mixed perfectly. Pour sesame oil on top gently mix them again.

  8. When all seasoning is mixed with rice perfectly. Make a well and crack eggs in the center, then scramble them gently (or you can scramble them outside first, but don’t pour them on top the rice because they will get too mushy). Gradually mix rice and egg together for 3-4 minutes until all the rice get coated with egg and your fried rice turn to golden color.

  9. Peel a cucumber and slice them thin then garnish over your fried rice.
