Anchovies Fried Rice December 20, 2006

Posted by Angeleyes in Halal, Rice, Seafood.

There was half a pot of rice left from last night and since I was going out for dinner with MIL tonight, I decided to fry the rice for PiggyBeng… he has got a conference call so can’t join us.

I did not managed to get any chicken meat and not wanted to let PiggyBeng eating too much salted fish, then I thought of using those anchovies (ikan bilis) that I bought during my previous KL trip. The anchovies gave the fried rice a good fragrance and it’s definitely healtier than salted fish. 🙂



  • 3 cups Cooked rice (best if kept in the fridge over night)
  • 40-50g Anchovies
  • 1 Onion (sliced thinly)
  • 2 Chili padi (chopped)
  • Carrot (cut to strips)
  • 1 Egg (beaten)
  • 1/2 tsp Dark soy sauce
  • 1 tsp Light soy sauce
  • Pepper for taste


  • 1 Egg – Beat and fried into ommelet then cut into thin strips
  • Carrot – Sliced and boil
  • Brocolli – Boil


  1. Heat up wok with 2 tbsp oil and fry the anchovies until turned light golden brown and lift up.
  2. Use the remaining oil in the wok and sauteed onion till soft and add in carrot strips and chopped chilies, continue to stir.
  3. Mash up the rice before pouring it into the wok and fry together with the onion and chillies. Add in dark soy sauce and light soy sauce while continue to stir.
  4. Beat egg and pour in slowly while continue to stir until all are well mixed.
  5. Add in the fried anchovies, stir and lift up from wok.

Tips: Keep adding cooking oil little by little while frying and not pouring so much oil at one go as the rice will absorb the oil very quickly and make the rice too oily when you are done. 😛
