After all the Chinese New Year goodies for many, many meals, it is time for something simple yet as appetising. This is a Chinese style fried rice using fried rice mix. It is an easy fried rice recipe like the others and as tasty and delicious as usual.
It is very versatile fried rice where you can substitute most of the ingredients like lap cheong with char siew, mixed frozen vegetables with carrots, canned green peas and green peas or French beans, button mushrooms with dried mushrooms etc.

Seasoning 
1 tbsp each light soy sauce and oyster sauce
Dash of pepper
½ sachet Seri Aji Ala Yang Chow [Chinese Fried Rice Mix]
1 tsp sesame oil
Garnishing – some chopped spring onions and sambal belacan
  1. Heat wok with oil, fry beancurd until lightly brown, add sausage, dried mushrooms, prawns and carrots. Fry until cooked.  Push aside, pour in the eggs and scramble lightly.
  2. Add in rice and stir constantly until fragrant to combine well.
  3. Add in seasoning, sesame seed oil and frozen peas, toss over high heat until well combined and rice is light.

Hi Phong Hong, the sambal is there cos' I'm a Penang Lang, descendant of a Peranakan family. Fried rice with sambal seems incomplete, hehehe!

Hi DG, not bad to know I have an admirer for my cooking and baking. It's a boost for me to cook and bake more. I love trying new ways to cook or bake. Best if they are healthier but still yummy, then I can enjoy more varieties of food.

Hello Kimmy, I hopped over from Phong Hong's blog and I saw my favourite fried rice with sambal belacan. It looks so very delicious. I am following you on GFC. Have a lovely day!

Thanks Nancy for visiting my humble blog. Fried rice is always welcome in the family and is great for easy meals at home. There are various flavours and ingredients that can be used for frying yet it is always awesome especially with sambal belacan.

Hi Yen, how I wish I can just cook fried rice during busy times like CNY so that I can spend time watching festive programmes on TV while snacking on CNY cookies, hehehe!
