Fried Rice with black eyed peas instructions
- I usually prefer starting out with the rice.So wash and drain your rice and give atleast 5min while you fry your onions together with Cummin seeds,this is to have them bursting out with flavours.The salt is to avoid splattering of oil.
- I love the full onion flavours thus I don't let my onions to brown,add in the carrots and continue stirring..
- The pepper and 2of the tomatoes come in at this stage.Fry them lightly to avoid the peppers from tanning..
- Remember you rice has been draining wet this whole time thus you put it in with the veges and stir for like 5min.This will have it taking up flavours and colours from the vegetable you have fried..
- Add in warm water and let boil..
- Towards the water almost evaporating pour a toping of Corriander.Remember if you are to get the full corriander flavour you cannot allow it to over cook thus always add it in in toward the end.
- Now it's time to fry your black eyed peas,fry your onions,carrots,cummin and salt together.(in oil ofcourse)Add tomatoes after 2min.
- While they fry mash the peas in halves.(note not till they are all squashed)This will allow them to take in flavours more easily.Remember on their own they are kinder tasteless.
- Add in the halved peas,and continue stirring till they fry well.Add in the peppers.
- Once they fry and bursting out with flavour add in a cup of warm water and put to boil.While almost ready dash in the corriander leaves..
- Yours should come out better than this.You can stir fry some vegetables say spinach and serve on the side.
