  • 1 1/2 cups long-grain white rice
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp canola oil, divided
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 large scallions, sliced
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • 2 large eggs


  1. Add rice, water, salt, and butter to a rice maker. Follow instructions on rice maker. When rice is done cooking, spread on a baking sheet and place in the fridge until cold.

  2. Heat a large griddle, wok or skillet to a high heat. Add 2 teaspoons canola oil and spread on griddle. Add onion, garlic, and white parts of the scallion. Reserve green tops for the end. Fry until slightly, softend, about 1-2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Add remaining canola oil and sesame oil to the griddle and add rice. Working quickly, toss and fry the rice in the oil. Fry until the rice is starting to get slightly crisp on the edges, about 3-4 minutes. Drizzle soy sauce over the rice, along with garlic powder, peas and carrots. Toss rice until soy sauce has been evenly distributed.

  4. Make a well in the center of the rice and add eggs. Use a wooden spoon to scramble. When they're cooked, toss with the rice. Add the remaining scallions to the rice and season with salt and pepper.
