Vegetarian Spicy Fried Rice

Do not use freshly cooked rice for this recipe, or it will become gummy after cooking in the pan. Use leftover rice from the day before, or if you don’t have the time, prepare the rice, let it cool and dry out, for about 2 hours. If the rice is still too wet, it will stick together.

2 tbs cooking oil
2 cups cooked rice
1 garlic clove, minced
4 fresh red chilis, chopped
1 cup button mushrooms, cut into pieces

1/2 cup green beans, cut into pieces
1 cup onion, chopped
1 carrot, cut into pieces
1 cup mixed vegetable cut into pieces (cabbage, cauli flower etc)

2 Tbs soy sauce

1/2Tbs Fish sause

2 Tbs Oyster sause
1/2 tsp. white pepper, ground
