Chinese style egg-fried rice (鸡蛋炒饭)

When I only have a few things leftover like rice and vegetables (before it goes bad) I use them up and make fried rice. It’s simple, budget-friendly, and delicious.

Serve: 2

Time: 30 minutes


300 g   Overnight jasmine rice

2          large eggs

3 tbsp  sweet corn

2 tbsp  green peas

1 tbsp     carrot (I use can mixed sweet corn & green peas)

2          minced garlic

1          chopped shallot

1          green onion

2 tbsp  light soy sauce

2 tbsp  Vegetable oil




Slice Cucumber

Slice Tomatoes

And If you dare enough, add fresh chili for extra hot.


  1. Prepare a Wok or a pan over a medium high heat stove. Add the vegetable oil and scramble the eggs. Set aside of the wok.
  2. Throw in minced garlic and chopped shallots, stir about 30 seconds until half-cooked.
  3. Add in all the vegetables: sweet corn, green peas, and carrots.
  4. Throw in the overnight rice, light soy sauce, salt, and pepper. Mix it well.
  5. Serve the egg-fried rice while it’s warm.

Hello there! If you are stopping by this page, you are probably searching for easy Asian home-cook meal inspirations that are uncomplicated, quick, budget-friendly, and still tasty and delishhh….. That’s what I am going to share in this blog. I am not a chef, I cook because I love it and I enjoy it. To give you a little background of who I am…. My name is Dewi, a self-made home-cook who enjoys filling her kitchen in with tasty and delicious of Asian food. I was born and grew up in Jakarta, Indonesia where I have never learned how to cook (except frying an egg or two, add soy sauce, and eat it with rice) and never thought I would have to cook ever in my life. Because my mom, who was (still is) the “family chef” had never encouraged the children to be involved in the kitchen. So, my passion for food and cooking came later on when I went abroad. In 2006, I moved to Beijing, China where I lived for a good 9 years. I occasionally cooked as I preferred to eat out or to order in, for a simple reason, it’s convenient and affordable (back then). My cooking journey became more apparent in 2015 when I decided to move to Germany. Eating out, especially for Asian food is expensive and not authentic. The selection of Asian restaurants is limited and because of the high price, it would mean that I would have to burn a hole in my pocket if I want to do it often. So now that I have a small family (my husband, my son, and I), I cook not only for myself but also for them. I like to try new things like occasional baking or non-Asian food. For that being said, I want to share my cooking journey with you and hope that you can find new food inspirations that you can do yourself at home, either for yourself or your family, it doesn’t have to be complicated. Happy cooking! =) Xoxo Dewi
