Singapore Crab Fried Rice

So, I had some extra crab meat lying around and a bunch of leftover sauces from my Black Pepper Crab and Chili Crab adventures. I thought, why not put them to good use with some amazing fried rice?

And not just any fried rice – I went all out and created two different versions of crab fried rice. Because, you know, why settle for just one when you can have two?

Black Pepper Crab...

The secret to crafting an exceptional fried rice dish lies in the texture of the rice itself. Utilizing rice that has been cooked and then cooled in the fridge overnight results in rice that's perfectly suited for stir-frying.

The overnight resting process creates rice grains that may appear clumped together; fear not, for during the cooking process, these can be easily separated apart.

Chili Crab...

Coating the rice thoroughly with the chosen sauce is another essential step. A continuous stir-fry will ensure each grain is enriched with flavor. In Chinese restaurant kitchens, skilled chefs prepare fried rice in scorching hot woks, a technique honed over years of practice.

At home, a skillet works just as well, though if you're up for it, a wok can offer an authentic touch. So, without further ado, let's dive into the recipe and unleash the flavors! Beautiful handmade dinnerware from KRA Sanctuary.
