I think that fried rice must be the most common dish in our dinner menu. As I often reach home quite late after work, doing an easy 1-pot dish like this ensures that we can have dinner by 9. Be creative and throw in different combination of ingredients, the possibilities are literally endless. Leftovers can also be eaten the next day as lunch.

Simple Fried Rice
2 cloves of garlic. minced
4 bowls of rice, left overnight
2 eggs, beaten
3 sprigs of spring onions, chopped
1 tomato, chopped,
200g luncheon meat, cubed
2½  tbsp dark soy sauce
1½ tbsp light soy sauce
1½ tbsp sesame oil

1. Heat up 2 tablespoons of oil in the pot. Fry the garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute.

2. Add in the cubes of luncheon meat and tomatoes, frying them until they are browned on the outside. Pour the egg batter into the pot. Mix the luncheon meat and tomatoes with the egg.

3. Remove all ingredients from the pot when the egg is nearly done, but still a little gooey.

4. Add rice into the pot, breaking them up. Drizzle all the sauces and sesame oil on the rice and toss vigorously, making sure that all the rice grains are well coated. Throw in the ingredients as well as the spring onions. Mix well to ensure that there are no clusters of meat or rice. Serve immediately.
