Japanese Fried Rice -The Kimpura Way

Here we are again.... in my little section of  my food recipes... I want to share with you how to cook Japanese  fried rice the Kimpura way. I ate at the newly opened Kimpura Restaurant at Greenbelt 5 recently and took a video of the chef cooking fried rice.. and guess what? I was able to get their step by step procedure on their fried rice. You do not need a misono table to cook this dish.... all you need is a WOK...

I would suggest that you dice all the ingredients that needed to be diced first, then arrange it nicely together with the other ingredients in a platter before you start cooking your fried rice...

Here is my Video on how to cook the fried rice which I took in Kimpura.

JAPANESE FRIED RICE ( makes 4 servings )


1/4 cup butter
1 tbsp. cooking oil
white onions ( diced )
green peppers ( diced )
