Japanese Garlic Fried Rice made using a secret ingredient…
I’m sure no one will every guess that there’s Kewpie Mayonnaise in this flavourful fried rice…
Ideally Japanese Fried Rice is made using short grain rice but today I chose to use regular long grain rice as that’s what was requested by the fam for the weekend.
This quick and easy recipe was inspired by the most talented Marion Grasby
I tweaked the recipe accordingly and made it according to our preference
I have used shrimps but you could definitely skip that and follow the rest of the steps

Step One : Mix the Kewpie Mayonnaise with the cooked rice and set aside till you start prepping the base for the fried rice.

Step Three : Add garlic and let it fry till beautiful and golden.My kitchen smells amazing….
Step Four : Add in shallots and let it fry a little.
Step Five : Move this mixture to one side of the pan to make space for scrambling the eggs.
Step Six : Add in beaten eggs and scramble lightly.Season Eggs with salt and pepper.
Step Seven : You could add in choice of protein at this point.
I added cooked shrimps but this step is completely optional.

Check for salt and adjust accordingly
