Toddler egg fried rice


This was Alicia's dinner on Saturday. I was at a loss about what to cook for her and decided to try fried rice again but of a different sort.

It was whipped up on the spur of the moment and I've kept seasoning to a minimum since she doesn't really take to food with a lot of seasoning. You may want to add more seasoning if your child is accustomed to it.

Alicia took quite long to eat this too but she still finished about 2/3 of the portion given to her... she kept picking out the peas and shallots to eat at first before agreeing to eat the rest of the fried rice... sigh.


Egg fried rice


Ingredients:
  • 1/3 cup rice (I used the 'cup' that came with the rice cooker, not the regular cup)
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • a handful frozen peas
  • 2T carrots (chopped)
  • 2 baby corn (chopped)
  • 1 shallot (sliced thinly)

Seasoning (according to your child's tastes):
  • light soy sauce
  • ground white pepper

Method:
  1. Cook rice as per normal.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and fry the shallots till golden brown. Remove the shallots, leaving the oil behind.
  3. Fry the peas, carrots and corn in the shallot oil till they are cooked through.
  4. Add the rice and mix evenly.
  5. Pour in the beaten egg bit by bit and stir-fry quickly.
  6. Add seasoning.
  7. Dish and serve with fried shallots.
