Simple Fried Rice

Hohoho I love this, leftover rice, leftover cabbage, leftover chili pepper,   and that’s it! I have nothing left in my fridge now. I don’t like to throw leftover food or vegetables, so, here it is, my magic fried rice! I can’t call this Indonesian, because I’m not using Indonesian wok, it’s not Chinese fried rice, because I’m not using oil from pork fat..soo…it’s just Aurelia’s then! 😀

Anyway, you can also do it without waiting for those “leftover” things in your fridge, you can add chicken, shrimp, or any other vegetables, do as you like!

This simple recipe I got it from my father. He taught me how to cook a “fast” food when I was a kid and I remembered that he was doing it a lot of times to feed the whole family 🙂



  • a bowl of leftover rice – make sure the rice is dry!
  • leftover cabbage, cut in thin pieces
  • leftover chili pepper – if you are crazy of spicy food
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped
  • soy sauce for taste
  • chili sauce/tomato sauce for coloring
  • a bit of oil

How to make it:

  • Heat oil in the wok and add in garlic and chili pepper (if you want to make it hot) — you can add chicken/shrimp/mushroom at this time if you want
  • Stir it for a moment and add in cabbage
  • Mix it well, and add in a bit of soy sauce to give the taste to cabbage
  • Add in rice, mix mix mix
  • Add in chili sauce/tomato sauce, just a little bit, for coloring only
  • Mix mix mix
  • Add in soy sauce for the last taste and serve before the cabbage becomes too soft
  • Serve with fried egg if you like

1 serving only
