RECIPE: Takana Fried Rice

RECIPE: Takana Fried Rice

Takana adds a peppery taste and dash of color to this fried rice. For an added crunch, let the rice sit without stirring after step 5 so that it develops a golden, crispy crust on the bottom. The flavors will deepen when enjoyed as leftovers the next day.

Servings: 2 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 beaten egg
  • ½ tbsp cooking oil 
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2-3 thinly sliced scallions
  • 80gTakana
  • 400g cooked rice
  • 1 tsp soy sauce* 
  • 1-2 tsp powdered dashi*(optional to taste) 
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)

Instructions:

  1. In a frying pan, heat cooking oil on medium heat and add the egg. Scramble lightly until half cooked. Remove from heat.
  2. In a frying pan, add 1 tbsp sesame oil and fry the scallions.
  3. Add the takana and cook stirring until tender.
  4. Add the cooked rice and egg. Stir until combined.
  5. Add the soy sauce, powdered dashi if using, and salt and pepper (to taste). Stir well. Let sit for a crispy texture if desired. 
  6. To finish, add 1 tsp of sesame oil and a dash of soy sauce. Fry for a moment to finish.

Thank you for your question Caitlin! Uncooked rice typically triples in weight once cooked, so 400g of cooked short grained Japanese white rice is about 130g of uncooked rice. Let us know what you think once you try this recipe!
