Edamame Fried Rice

*sorry to my fasting friends, but this might give you idea for sahur*


There is no spectacle on earth more appealing than that of a beautiful woman in the act of cooking dinner for someone she loves – Thomas Wolfe

I love myself :p

Yesterday I was left alone with no ready food. So, I made the dish on the pic up there, edamame fried rice, from whatever I have in fridge. Meat-less *i cry*. Which consists of:

  • 2 cloves of garlic, slice thinly
  • 1 clove of shallot, slice thinly
  • 1 red chilli pepper, remove the seeds
  • A handful of cole, slice as you wish (LOL but really)
  • A handful of edamame (this, is the leftover from previous picnic snack), boil for 10 minutes on medium heat, then remove and dump in ice water (crunchy edamame is always acceptable, crunchy not raw)
  • 2 eggs
  • Rice of course
  • Salt and salty soy sauce (to give colour)
  • Sesame oil, optional


  1. On the medium heat, add enough oil, garlic, shallot, and chilli pepper to the pan. Cook till brown and you can smell it. Don’t burn it. Keep stirring. Once it’s done, move them to another side of the pan.
  2. Crack the eggs and add them to the pan. If you need more oil, add just a little of it. Scramble the eggs.
  3. Add rice, stir to mix.
  4. Add edamame and cole, give it a stir. Throw a pinch of salt (or however you prefer), and couple drops of salty soy sauce (again, however you prefer). Stir to mix.
  5. Turn off the heat.
  6. Add couple drops of the optional sesame oil.
  7. Serve it. Quickly put it on the dining table before you drool on it, literally on it.
