8 Delicious Fried Rice Recipes to Try

Love fried rice? 8 delicious, tried and tested fried rice recipes for you to try! After making a couple or so, you’d be a pro at making the tastiest fried rice recipe!

I have mentioned many times on the blog that in the Philippines we eat rice at least 3x a day! That’s a lot of rice. That means many left-overs sometimes. No worries. That’s good news. More often than not, we overcook so we have left-overs! You’re probably wondering, why? So we can make fried rice!!!

That’s no joke! I’ll tell you a secret – the best fried rice is rice made from chilled left-over rice! So for may family, it makes a lot of sense to cook more rice than needed so that we can use the left-over rice to make fried rice the next day. After all, the best breakfast in the Philippines is always breakfast with fried rice (aka as Sinangag!). You can have it with eggs, cured meat, sausages, ham and even seafood! It’s a win-win situation.

Now if you are a huge fan of fried rice or rice in general. I’ve got good news for you!

I recently published a cookbook that’s all about rice (and yummy noodles, too for good measure!). It’s entitled RICE. NOODLES. YUM. (EVERYONE’S FAVORITE SOUTHEAST ASIAN DISHES. It’s now onsale at Amazon, Barnes and Nobles and anywhere books are sold. It got a starred review from Publishers Weekly and is highly recommended by them: “Manila Spoon blogger Raines delivers on her promise of flavorful dishes built around noodles and rice. Raines’s instructions are clear, and nearly all ingredients are easily sourced. This is an outstanding assembly of dishes, and a book sure to get plenty of use.” Check out the entire review of the book  here.
