Nonya Fried Rice - MFF featuring Penang

Looks like I am not slacking after all, haha! Coming up with another post 2 days later...even I am surprise with myself, haha. Cutting a little close to the dateline...but better not doing it at all right? (self comforting) Anyway, this last post for this month is Nonya Fried Rice which I again adapted from out dear Phong Hong, thanks so much my friend! 
I have to say this is indeed a very delicious and flavorful dish! Really different from your usual fried rice. :P Most of the "punch" comes from the dried shrimp and fresh sweet prawns, yummy! To think that I didn't add much seasoning to that big pot of fried rice. So delicious! I followed Phong Hong's recipe pretty closely this time, here is my copy of it.

Ingredients for Nonya Fried Rice (Serves 4)
1 tbsp garlic, minced
3 large eggs, lightly beaten and seasoned with 1 tsp soy sauce and a dash of pepper
2 tbsp vegetable oil
5 tbsp vegetable oil
5 shallots, sliced thinly
4 garlic cloves, minced
50g dried shrimp, soaked and chopped finely
150g prawns, shelled and deveined
3 dried shitake mushrooms, soaked till soft and sliced thinly
1 tsp chili paste (I added so little because of my kids)
3 cups of cooked rice, cooled or overnight

1 tbsp light soy saucce
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp caster sugar
a few dashes of pepper
1/4 tsp dark soy sauce

Thinly sliced spring onions
Fried Shallot crisps
  • Heat up the wok and add the oil. Once the wok is hot enough, add in garlic and stir till aromatic.
  • Add in eggs and fried till golden brown. Break it up with the spatula into smaller chunks. Dish up and set aside.
  • Add the 5 tbsp oil at medium low fire. Add in the garlic and shallots and stir fry till aromatic. 
  • Add in the minced dried shrimp and sliced mushrooms and continue to cool till fragrant again.
  • Then add in the fresh prawns and cook till it turned pink. 
  • Add in the cooked rice, followed by the seasoning. Stir everything together till all the rice is coated with the seasoning and even colored.
  • Lastly add in the fried egg and stir in well. Dish up and garnish with spring onion and fried shallots. Serve while still hot. Enjoy!
 It looks so ordinary, but the taste is extraordinary! Simply heart this, even my family was all praised, haha! Am so glad I still managed to attempt this even it was so last minute, haha!

Okay, will again submit this to this month's Malaysian Food Fest Penang Month hosted by Alan of Travellingfoodies.

okay folks, have a great start next week!
