Nigerian Fried Rice By Sisi Yemmie

A yummy serving of fried rice with chicken

Green pepper
Sweet Corn
Green beans
Spring onions
Broth ( chicken or beef)
Blended dry pepper

  •  I parboil the rice slightly, add the stock/broth, add curry, thyme, knorr cube, salt and blended dry pepper. This pepper is optional, I just don't like rice without pepper. I also add little amount of water and mix the contents of the pot with the omorogun aka o'turneba aka wooden ladle. 
  • In a separate pot I boil the liver. I don't like the smell of liver boiling :/
  • I always use fresh vegetables because they are so crunchy when you cook with them instead of the processed ones that just become limp in the fry pan.
  • I chop  the vegetables. This is the most annoying part for me. I have a history of OCD with chopping the carrots, they must be perfectly 'cubed'! If I have someone helping me, I give them everything else to chop except the carrot. I also make sure I scrape the carrot (the Kanda) so that it's clean and the color pops!
  • If I've got chicken or beef I usually fry it so that I use the same oil to fry the vegetables.  
  • In the hot wok/fry pan start by frying onions and the spring onion, add a bit of knorr to the onions so that it tastes sweet. Add the liver, allow to fry for about a minute, add the green pepper. Keep frying and stirring.  
  • Add some salt, bit of curry, and knorr. Keep frying. Add the carrot and then the green beans. Stir.
  • Add the sweet corn, peas and keep frying till its cooked. At this stage I add king prawns if I've got any. Pour this mixture in a separate pot and start frying your vegetables and cooked rice in batches/portions! This way the rice doesn't stick together, the ingredients go round, and you fry well enough to avoid it getting sour quickly if you're going to store it!
  • I usually fry about two spoons of the vegetable mixture and maybe 3 spoons of rice. Just mix it the way you like, mix in the pan and while doing that you can taste if the seasoning is enough, if it isn't you can add more and then fry.
  • When you think a batch is done pour into a serving dish or pot and start again with the next batch. 
  • I like this method because the ingredients will always go round. Unlike all those fried rice they serve at some 9ja weddings where it's 2 carrots and 1 peas per plate.

    PS. When I say fry, I don't mean deep fry oh!!! Just mix the vegies and rice together. As always, if you try this recipe and you like it, come back and testify!
