Been to the chinese supermarket today and bought yellow bean sauce, oyster sauce, and a load of other goodies to make some chinese recipes from my new cook book but wondered if any of you have any you'd recommoned?
Fried rice *2 or 3 cups of one to two days old cooked rice *2 cups diced mixed veggies - what ever you have at hand and dice at an angle to get max exposed surface *1 chili, 3 cloves of garlic and one inch ginger stem diced finely *half a lemon zest grated and the juice of one lemon *salt and soya sauce to taste *scrambled egg optional
Cook the veggies in butter or oil. Once they are crunchy but a bit soft, add the chili etc. and lemon zest and rice. Add salt and soya sauce to taste and the egg. Finally add the lemon juice on top. If you have any herbs like coriander, parsley or mint, you can dice them and sprinkle on top
