Singapore fried rice recipe – Having stayed for more than a decade in Singapore, I haven’t found any fried rice that is specific to Singapore. We do get a variety of fried rice served in restaurants but there is nothing served as Singapore fried rice.
Singapore fried rice is a spicy hot rice that is available in some chinese take aways and also served as a street food in India. It is on the spicier side which is made with a variety of hot sauces like peri peri sauce or red chilli sauce. Peri peri is one of Asia’s hottest sauces available and is used for a variety of dishes from pasta, noodles to grilled chicken recipes.
Singapore fried rice is best served during winters for a quick dinner. I have shared a vegetarian version of the recipe. However you can also add an egg, shredded chicken or prawns as per your liking. Just marinate them in some sauce and saute it first before adding the veggies.
