No need for a screaming hot pan for this take on fried rice! This side dish is packed with flavor from spices and given a creamy finish with golden egg yolks stirred into the hot rice before serving. We learned of this genius technique from Lucas Sin of Junzi Kitchen and adapted it to the microwave — turns out it works!

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

Dish

The Medium Shallow Dish

Ingredients

  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon ginger, minced
  • ½ (75g) small onion, small dice
  • ½ teaspoon soy sauce
  • teaspoon white pepper
  • teaspoons sesame oil
  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • ½ cup (50g) broccoli, cut into small florets
  • salt, to taste
  • cups (270g) cooked rice
  • 3 egg yolks

Preparation

  1. Add all ingredients except the rice and egg yolks to the Anyday dish. Cover with lid (knob lifted).
  2. Cook for  3-4 minutes, or until aromatic.
  3. Add the cooked rice and mix thoroughly. Cover and cook for  2-3 minutes, or until rice is very hot.
  4. Add egg yolks to the hot steaming rice, and mix quickly and thoroughly to evenly coat the rice. The yolks will gently cook from the steam.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Garnish with scallions and sesame seeds
  • Swap broccoli for other vegetables cut in a similar size, like peas, asparagus, or cauliflower.
  • Try it with brown butter for extra nutritional value.

Recipe notes

  • Using cooked rice will ensure that the recipe results in a delicious dish with the rice grains well separated and not sticky.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
