HOW DO YOU MAKE HIBACHI FRIED RICE?

You start off by making rice. Fried rice works best with cold rice. With cold rice, the grains are all separated and firm, and you’ll get a better texture than you would with fresh cooked rice.

So if you have time, cook rice ahead of time and let it cool for few hours.

Fried rice made with just-cooked rice will be softer and won’t have those crispy little bits.

If you are using Jasmine or short grain rice, make sure to rinse it for about a minute. It helps rice get less sticky.

The next step is to make seasoned veggies. I am using frozen pack of carrots, peas and corn along with cut onion and celery.

You saute these veggies with the delicious sauce mixture. The bold and beautiful flavors all happen here!

If you are using eggs, you can mix it with veggies and make it like a scramble.

Finally, we mix in cooked white rice, toasted sesame seeds and cut green onions. Cook until everything is coated in sauce.

A drizzle of sriracha on the top and your culinary masterpiece is ready !!

FRIED RICE VARIATIONS

Fried rice is wholesome and full of nutrients and protein.

You can add tofu or edmame beans for more hearty meal. Or use your favorite protein like chicken, eggs or shrimp for a simple but satisfying lunch or dinner.

I am using Jasmine rice for authentic texture and stickiness. However, you can make the same recipe with any leftover cooked rice or grains including brown rice or cauliflower rice.

Same goes for veggies used. Use up any leftover veggies in the fridge. Bok choy, eggplant, green beans, bell peppers all are great choices.

WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS OF HIBACHI FRIED RICE

The base of the recipe is Rice and veggies. I am using Jasmine rice and frozen veggie mix.

The Flavor Makers – Minced garlic and ginger gives classic Asian flair to this rice and so does Sesame oil. Usual suspects include soy sauce and rice vinegar. Adding hoisin sauce helps with darker color and more intense flavors.

Lime juice, sesame seeds and green onions are used as garnish which brings freshness, toasty crunch and perfect savory flavor.

To make rice :

Add the cooked rice. Stir in the soy sauce, rice vinegar, hoisin sauce and mix gently until everything is thoroughly combined and warmed through, 3-4 minutes. Cancel SAUTE.

Adjust the seasonings as needed. Sprinkle sesame seeds, green onions and squeeze some lime juice over the top of the rice mixture, then serve warm.

Heat 1 teaspoon of oil to the pan, along with the onion and other veggies. Sprinkle some salt. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until veggies are softened.

Add the ginger, garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
