Salted Eggs Fried Rice (ข้าวผัดไข่เค็ม)
Hi, everyone. Mod is back.
Today we are going to show you how to make salted eggs fried rice. It begins when Adam was back home with almost two dozens of eggs (chicken and duck eggs) that his patient gave to him for free (he is a physical therapy assistant.). He thought he should do something with those eggs and probably share with his patient afterward. He looked online and found "salted duck eggs", so he decided to make it.
After we finished making the salted eggs, we found out that we did it wrong. The eggs supposed to be raw before they were soaking in salted water, but we boiled them before we put them in! We both thought what a waste to throw away those eggs, so we kept them in the salted water for over two weeks.
Two weeks passed by, one night we came home after the gym and open a salted eggs jar and cut the eggs and tried. It actually was good, and Adam said it was perfect for his post-workout to rebuild his electrolytes, but for me, it was too salted to eat by itself.
During the month that I was a vegetarian; I looked in the fridge and saw the salted eggs buried in the jar. I thought what I can do with those. "Fried Rice" that was it; and there my friends a story about my salted eggs fried rice.
As usual, I used brown rice for my fried rice. I always have rice in my pantry. It is an "NO NO" for us not to have rice in a house. It is a must!
Before I cooked, I thought about the nutrition and easiness. It would be one dish, no side dish, thus it had to have all nutrients in one plate. We had salted eggs for protein, brown rice for carbs, so we only needed to throw some vegetables and some good fat in it. That would be perfect.
Here is my salted eggs fried rice recipe which I turn on a failure to an awesome dish.
- • 3 cups cooked brown rice
- • 1 cup chopped (roughly ½ cm.) green bean
- • 2 thin wheels small carrots, about 1 ⅕ cups
- • 3 salted eggs
- • 1 tablespoon olive oil
- • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
- • 1 glass of water
- Heat olive oil in a wok, and add carrots and green beans after the oil is hot.
- Stir-fry until the vegetables are soft, about 2 minutes. Add some low sodium soy sauce while you are cooking the vegetables.
- Add brown rice and stir-fry just a minute or two or until all the brown rice is heated. During this step, the wok may be dry because of the heat, add a little bit of water occasionally, so the rice won't burn and stick on the wok.
- Then add salted eggs and stir fried for a couple minutes.
- Serve with cucumber, Thai chili, chili garlic sauce, and limes.
