Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a large wok or skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of canola oil over high heat until it begins to smoke.
  2. In a bowl, beat together the eggs and water until smooth. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and let it cook briefly until it starts to set. Lightly scramble the eggs with a wooden spoon until they are fully cooked and glossy, about 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the cooked eggs to a plate.
  3. Add 1 teaspoon of sesame oil to the hot pan. Pour in enough canola oil to coat the cooking surface and heat until smoking. Sauté the onion and garlic in the oil until they become fragrant, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the peas and carrots, cooking until they are heated through, another 1 to 2 minutes. Return the cooked eggs to the pan.
  4. Gradually add the rice to the skillet, breaking up any clumps and mixing it with the vegetables. Cook and stir until the rice starts to turn light brown and is thoroughly heated, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Stir in the Sriracha sauce, soy sauce, fish sauce, sugar, salt, white pepper, and monosodium glutamate. Continue to cook and stir until the rice grains are well-coated and no longer sticking together, about 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove the pan from heat. Sprinkle green onion and cilantro over the rice and toss to combine.
  6. Using a vegetable shredder, peel the outer skin of the cucumber to create a decorative pattern. Slice the cucumber diagonally and arrange the slices in a circle on a serving platter. Place the fried rice in the center of the platter and garnish with additional green onion and white pepper.

Notes

  • – For a vegetarian version, you can omit the ham and add more vegetables like bell peppers, carrots, or mushrooms.
    – Leftover rice works best for fried rice as it is less sticky.
    – Adjust the soy sauce to taste if you prefer a saltier or milder flavor.
