'Almost Instant' Rice

Would like to share this genius ( or you can call it lazy) recipe from my hubby in Doha. With little ingredients & very little cooking involved (just steaming & boiling), I can say that this is very suitable for working people that would love some home cook food after a long & tired day at work. Or, for a quick fix-me dinner when you're lazy.

rice, chicken shred/prawns/chinese sausage/normal sausage/anything that is available, veggie, oyster sauce & sesame oil / olive oil

Note : My hubby used Basmati rice in this cooking. Half cup of rice with 3/4 cup water for 1 serving

1. When the rice is half cook (little bit water left), put in the meat stuff.

2. When the rice all cooked, put in veggie for 5 minutes steaming. Lettuce was used because my hubby love to eat the vege raw. If Mix Veggie is used, put in together with the rest of the ingredients.

3. mix 1.5 table spoon of oyster sauce and 1 table spoon of sesame oil in a plate

4. Finally, dump the rice in and mix well... and then eat while it's still hot....

Ain't that easy to prepare? words of caution if you're using a normal saucepan or pot. You need to make sure you don't burn you rice :p.

i call it lazy fried rice. because it's really "1 wok cook". 20 min max cooking time. once you master the methods, you can cut it down to 15 mins. i'm using hot plate stove, so i'm not sure how it will be on gas stove. something i will find out when i go back...
