3. Add in chopped garlic and onion, stir fry and mix well.
4. Add in shrimps, cook till change colour.
5. Add in potatoes, stir fry and cook till potatoes medium done.
6. Then add in chopped carrot and green bean, stir fry for a while
7. Put in the cooked rice, toss well to combine.
8. Add salt and pepper, pour light soy sauce from the side of the wok (this way will be more fragrant).

One more thing, my mom just taught me to add little salt, oil and stock powder into rice before cook it in rice cooker, you will have more tasty fried rice.

If only my hubby will cook me fried rice.
Maybe in my dreams, hahah!!

The use of potatoes in fried rice is very new to me, Good idea to add some texture to the fried rice.
I do agree with the fact of adding seasonings while boiling the rice. I did that too when I mass fried rice (300pax) for the students in my ex school. Saves a lot of seasoning work when the seasoning is already done when cooking the white rice.

Putting potatoes in fried rice is new to me. Since we love potato maybe I should try this out the next time I make some fried rice.

Jo said...

What a coincidence, I just made green bean fried rice last Sunday. Interesting that you had added potato in yours.

Betty Ray said...

Lovely! This looks like yummy comforting food. Never thought to add potato and will try it.

Quinn said...

Both husband and wife cook so well makes for a bunch of very happy and luckiest children on earth!

Little Corner of Mine said...

Yummy! I also learned the trick of using chicken rice to fried rice to make it more fragrant. I saw the hawker cook prepared the fried rice that my hubby ordered and he used chicken rice. That was my "Aha" moment.

WyYv said...

tigerfish said...

I like addition of green beans in fried rice and with the ikan bilis....it is already so good without the potatoes. Maybe I am not used to having potatoes in rice.

Karen said...

I've never made fried rice at home. This sounds great...I love the ingredients in it. They're different than what I've seen in other fried rice recipes. Great tips!

Cheah said...

Good idea to add seasoning to the rice while cooking and whose fingers are those? Your son's? Soft, velvety skin! Mine were like that, long, long ago! Ha, Ha!

Elin said...

Adding potatoes to fried rice is new to me too but it looks good.

I find it really interesting that Malaysians add anchovies to nearly everything. I didn't know that until I came here. Nice recipe though. It looks cool.
