Ginger Egg Fried Rice - Confinement Month # 8

Monday, June 27, 2011

One of the traditional confinement dishes.

I hear, it's the standard "confinement breakfast".

My confinement lady told me, most of her clients will only eat this for breakfast, FOR ONE WHOLE MONTH!!!
I'll die, die not from the ginger's heat, but from boredom.

I only consume this once per week for lunch, not breakfast. It'll be too heavy if this is for breakfast.
Take note that only sesame oil is used here, no cooking oil. If this is for regular consumption, please use cooking oil.

Ginger Fried Rice
Recipe source: Wendyywy

1 cup of cooled cooked rice or rice servings for one
2 Tbsp very thinly julienned ginger
2 Tbsp chopped spring onions
2 Tbsp sesame oil (for non confinement, use regular cooking oil)
1 Free range egg
Salt to taste

*If you like more heat, add more ginger, adjust the ingredients' amount as you like.

1. Heat a wok on medium heat and put in ginger. Toss ginger around until it is no longer moist.
2. Turn heat to high and put in sesame oil. Fry ginger until it is fragrant.
3. Put in rice and toss until rice is hot.
4. Push rice aside and put in egg. Push rice back onto egg and toss until eggs are well scrambled with the rice.
5. Season with salt and continue to fry until rice and eggs are really fragrant.
6. Toss in chopped spring onions and dish up to serve.

25 lovely notes:

Totally agree with u! Bore 2 eat everyday & too filling 4 breakfast! I think I eat this dish less than 4 times in all of my 3 confinement month!

I love this ' ma yau tan chow fann ' and Claire and I will order this for our lunch quite often...yours look so good. Your confinement lady cooked this for you under your supervision :p ??

I don't mind having this for lunch twice a week :) love the crispy ginger and the egg and the aroma of sesame oil!

This is lovely. I love something with ginger in fact.. senang nak keluar angin.. hehheh

I made something similar last year without knowing it is considered confinement food!


yours is so much nicer and the food more appetizing :)

WendyinKK June 27, 2011 at 1:55 PM  

Mother ma, nvm loo, let her save some work. kekeke.

Small kucing,
yawoh, very heaty

Puan Ros,
Bila bila pun boleh makan, tapi jangan selalu, minyak bijan tu panas.

Then you really very seldom eat this then, 90 days and 270 meals and only less than 4 times.

She cooked this, but the instructions are purely based on the way I do it, kekeke,.
I used Taj Mahal Ponni rice for this fried rice, as it's more "separable" and fluffy

I kentut tak henti henti la.

You can eat this on normal days, but it's a very common confinement breakfast.

Looks delicious, you do have many varieties of confinement food to enjoy!

Fragrant fried rice indeed. Love ginger added to fried rice.

Charmaine June 27, 2011 at 2:23 PM  

I love this fragrant fried rice with ginger. I will ask for it everyday. I still cook this even though out of confinement.

hi dear Wendy,
do you know where can I find cast iron wok in Malaysia? is there any local place for it? considering I am foreign student and don't know any place except shopping malls and china town ;)

Shirley @ Kokken69 June 27, 2011 at 3:49 PM  

Really? This is standard confinement dish? I am surpised. I thought confinement should be eating soupy things. This looks good, though. I don't mind eating this at all.

lena June 27, 2011 at 8:06 PM  

few weeks ago , we had this at overseas rest in ipoh.. my brother's recommendation, it was very nice but maybe not as spicy as this one..btw, they are selling mooncakes already!

Min June 27, 2011 at 8:13 PM  

Wendy, I love this! In fact I like anything with ginger, next time can try cooking this at home :)

yummylittlecooks June 27, 2011 at 9:46 PM  

My confinement lady also cooked this for me,,,sooo yummy leh, I like it very much.She chopped the ginger finely and she fried it together with kai lan.Oh!!now, I missed her dish!@#$%^

WendyinKK June 28, 2011 at 2:25 AM  

Haha, why eat only the same few dishes?

Belly Good,
Yup yup

LOL, there are a lot of people like you

Try this next time

Malaysia is not small but yet quite big. I have no idea where you are. Just head to any crockery shop, those that sell pots and pans and plastic ware. Head to PJ old town if you are around there. Lots of such shops in that area.

Well, here it is a "standard" confinement dish. Maybe in the Cantonese community. But my confinement lady works all over Malaysia and she told me a lot of her clients eat this everyday. Even my aunt cooks this for me each time she visits me right after delivery. We drink lots of soups too, but this is usually for breakfast. I'm not sure about the practices in Singapore.

Mooncakes? Scary. Maybe last year's leftovers, LOL.
Usually restaurants add in a lot of "sifu", and definately nicer than homecooked ones, haha.


Yeah, the finer the ginger, the nicer it tastes.
With some kailan is a good idea.

Never had fried rice with ginger in it.... Anyway hope you have a good rest.

How come post on Table for 2 is not printer friendly?

WendyinKK August 24, 2011 at 9:01 AM  

I wish someone would teach me to make it printer friendly.
I don't know how, yet.

WendyinKK August 24, 2011 at 9:02 AM  

anyway, you can just copy and paste the recipe to a word processor like MS Word or Notepad and print out which ever part you like
