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.
