For the Stir fry

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 garlic clove
  • ½ scotch bonnet - chopped/ minced (optional)
  • 1 spring onion - sliced
  • 3 chicken hotdogs (roughly chopped)
  • ½ tsp mixed herbs
  • ½ tsp curry powder
  • A pinch salt
  • ½ tsp all-purpose seasoning
  • ½ red bell peppers
  • ½ green bell peppers
  • ½ yellow bell peppers
  • 1 stock cube
  • 2 cups leftover cooked rice (or 12 -14 spoons) cooked rice

For fried eggs

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 eggs (medium-sized)


  • Prepare the ingredients.
    Dice the chicken hotdogs, garlic, scotch bonnet, spring onion, and mixed bell peppers. You can break the cooked rice apart with your hands or a spatula for easier cooking later.
  • Fry the rice.
    Allow coconut oil to heat over a low fire. Saute the garlic, scotch bonnet, and spring onion for a minute. Then, add the diced chicken hot dog and season with mixed herbs, curry powder, salt, and all-purpose seasoning. Stir fry for 2 minutes.
    Incorporate the chopped mixed bell peppers and season with the chicken stock cube. Once well combined, toss the leftover rice and spring onions and stir fry for 3 minutes.
    Push the ingredients aside and add coconut oil to the left space. Fry the eggs, and move the egg around to scramble once half-cooked. Then, slowly incorporate it into the rice. Once content with the seasoning and doneness, serve the leftover fried rice!



  • You can also season everything with soy sauce instead of the herbs and spices mentioned in the recipe.
  • Use alternatives for the rice, hotdogs, vegetables, and seasoning for a fried rice version of your own.
  • It is best to use cooked rice for frying because of the loose texture and quality. Cooked rice is also easier to combine with fried rice ingredients.
  • Fried rice can be cooked with either butter or oil. Butter gives a creamy and mildly sweet flavor, whereas the oil gives it a touch of smokiness.
  • The important thing is to use an adequate amount to prevent the fried rice from becoming soggy.
