Ham and Egg Fried Rice with Celery
Ham and Egg Fried Rice with Celery is a versatile and flavorful dish that offers a unique twist on the classic fried rice. The recipe begins with cold leftover rice, providing a great base for absorbing all the delicious flavors. The key ingredients include minced garlic (or a combination of shallots and garlic), chopped celery leaves (including the tips of the celery stalk), chopped onion, green onions, chopped ham, and beaten eggs. These ingredients come together to create a harmonious blend of textures and tastes.
To prepare the dish, the process starts with heating vegetable oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Garlic (or shallots and garlic) and chopped onion are added and stir-fried until they achieve a golden brown color. The beaten eggs are then introduced, creating a crumbled and firm texture. The rice is added to the pan and combined with the egg mixture, stir-frying until the rice is heated through.
Next, the stir fry sauce, made from a mixture of soy sauce, sugar, and sesame oil, is added to the rice, infusing it with a savory and slightly sweet flavor. Chopped celery leaves and green onions are incorporated, providing freshness and a delightful crunch. The dish is then seasoned to taste and any adjustments to the flavor can be made at this stage.
Finally, the heat is turned off, and the fried rice is ready to be served. To add an extra kick, black or white pepper, along with a squeeze of lime juice, can be added before serving. This Ham and Egg Fried Rice with Celery offers a delicious and satisfying meal that can be enjoyed on its own or as a side dish to complement a wider spread.
