Sardine Fried Rice

sardine fried rice

I first ate this fried rice at my sister-in-law's place. I was blown over by the simplicity of this dish. I couldn't have imagined that a can of sardine in tomato sauce can do wonders for a fried rice dish. Since then, hubby had told me this is their family favourite. He had cooked this for me before but I have since perfected it.

All one need are just a can of sardine in tomato sauce, day old rice, french or long beans and seasonings. That's it, very simple. Mash the sardine up together with the tomato sauce, hubby likes them all mashed up finely where else I like mine chunky, so it's entirely up to you what kind of texture you like. Squeeze in a bit of lemon juice if you fancy some tang.

First heat up some oil in the wok. Pour in the diced french beans which worked best for this dish. You may also add in some diced onions. Next add in some salt. Stir and dump in the rice. Mix throughly to coat the rice with the oil before pouring in the sardine. Stir fry to coat the rice with the sardine until evenly. Remember to eat this fried rice while its hot, otherwise, store them in the rice cooker with the keep warm setting until you're ready to eat them.

Babe_KL said...

tonixe, did the tuna fried rice tasted weird? hmmm i might wanna try one fine day when i ran out of fried rice ideas

thanks for coming by anonymous

Jackson said...'s really simple to cook, less mise-en-place and ....taste good ( i love sardine )!!! But i think i will add some chilli padi as what thummythoz suggest to make it ROCKS!!! May be some tomatoes cube will make the overall idea more healthy..hehe

Babe_KL said...

you could add diced tomatoes jackson but do remove the seeds, else it's gonna make the rice wettish

I never came across any stall that sells Nasi Tomato Sardin. Yours must be the first!!

Valisa said...

I make mine without the tomato sauce - but with a bit of curry powder and lemon or lime juice and lots of red chillies. If you have fishsauce use that instead of salt - got kick one :P

Tuna fried rice is also yummy with petite pois, lots and lots of garlic and ginger and eggs!!!

my winter comfort food ;-)
