Yes it’s the typical leftover rice from last night that she will prepare on a weekend morning the aroma of garlic that she have to toast in the pan with a little oil and break the leftover rice especially if it came out from the refrigerator then it will be served with a sunny side up egg and fried fish or longganisa together with a hot cup of coffee. Ooops did you just imagine how is it served calling everyone in the dining table.

In other parts of asia they also have their own versions of fried rice. In Singapore fried rice uses long grain kind of rice with green peas and eggs then there’s this episode of fried rice in China from Ugly Delicious also I happily stumble with this Japanese fried rice recipe on instagram but for this recipe I did not use Japanese rice which is shorter in grain and sticky with this chewy feeling.

Although I love Japanese rice and its my pantry staple even if I’m not making Sushi. For this recipe I use Thai’s Jasmin rice. I made this simple recipe for working adults like me this Japanese fried rice can be stored in a container and eat up after work instead of buying food outside saves time and money.

I like how this recipe is not so complicated and doesn’t consume so much time. Since adapting a plant-based diet I learned to cook more and explore different condiments and spices. Especially in using Sesame oil and incorporating more vegetables into my cooking.
