Solaria Restaurant-style Fried Rice Indonesian Food Recipe

Hello! Today, we'll be making Fried Rice with Solaria Restaurant-style. The style is similar to Solaria or Fried Rice from other Chinese restaurants in Indonesia. It's not Chinese-style. Somehow, Chinese restaurants in Indonesia, especially the local ones, have this style of Fried Rice. It's different to Indonesianstyle fried rice. Maybe we'll cook that in another episode. Here are the ingredients. We'll need garlic, shallots, chili, green onions. For the sauces, there's fish sauce, soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sweet soy sauce. The margarine is optional. You can also add dried shrimp but here, I'm just making a simple version with easyto-find ingredients.


Seafood Fried Rice Recipe (2 portions)

Ingredients:

  • 2 serving rice
  • 2 pc egg
  • 4 pc fish ball, sliced
  • 50 g chicken, diced
  • 6 pc shrimp, peeled
  • 3 pc shallots, grated
  • 2 clove garlic, grated
  • 2 pc green onions, sliced
  • 1 pc red chili
  • ½ tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp sweet soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  • ½ - 1 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • Flavor enhancer
  • ½ tbsp margarine
  • Oil for sautéing

Steps:

  1. Heat the wok with high heat. Pour the oil in and sauté the chicken and shrimp. Stir, then add the fish balls. Cook for a bit and set aside.
  2. In the same wok with high heat, pour some oil and scramble the eggs until crisp and the oil foamy. Then, add the shallots and garlic in. Sauté until fragrant.
  3. Add the fish sauce, fish balls, shrimp, chicken, chili, and green onions in. Sauté for a bit.
  4. Add the rice in with fish sauce, sweet soy sauce, oyster sauce, sugar, pepper, oyster sauce, and flavor enhancers. Stir well.
  5. Add the green part of green onions and margarine. Mix well and turn the heat off.
  6. Transfer to a serving plate. Fried rice is ready to serve.

The filling is also optional. It's up to you. I'm using chicken, fish balls, shrimp, and eggs. Of course, we'll need rice suitable for Fried Rice. Don't use mushy rice as it won't taste as good. Okay, first we need garlic and shallots. You can blend, puree, or slice them, but I'll puree them to enhance the flavor. I'm grating both of them. I'm grating them just so there's not a lot I have to wash. You can grind them, too. Whatever you want. Next, heat the wok. When making fried rice, the hotter the wok the more fragrant the results. That's why in Chinese restaurants, they use highpressure stove.

You'll get a more fragrant fried rice with less cooking time. It's important to cook the shrimp and chicken first as if you cook it with the rice they'll release lots of water. That might make the fried rice not fragrant. After we sauté everything until they're fragrant, adding shrimp and chicken in will make them wet again. The wok's temperature will drop, too, diminishing the aroma. That's why we sauté these two first. After they're cooked and a bit browned, add some oil to the same wok. Don't use too little oil this time. But it's okay to use less if you're trying to reduce oil intake. Add the eggs in.

Once the eggs are fragrant and foamy, add the garlic and shallots in. Cook them until fragrant and there's no raw smell. Once they're fragrant and cooked with no raw smell, add the fish sauce in first. When it comes in contact with heat, fish sauce will exude a better aroma. Then, add the fillings in. The fragrant is fierce. It's really good. Next, add the rice in. Add the oyster sauce and sweet soy sauce in. Also, the soy sauce. Pepper. Also, sugar. It's optional, for if you like the dish to be a bit sweet. Aside from this Solaria Fried Rice, lately I've been sharing lots of restaurant dishes.

Nowadays, I often experiment on restaurant dishes when I miss them. Since the pandemic started, I've been limiting my mobility. If I can stay at home, it's better to stay at home. If you have to leave home, don't forget to follow the correct health protocols. Keep your distance, wash your hands with soap, and most importantly, wear a face mask. It's not only to protect yourself but also to limit the spread of virus. Right now, I enjoy wearing cloth face masks from Rider. It consists of three layers, microfiber and spandex. It's effective, antibacterial, antivirus, and antidroplet. The cloth is comfortable for daily use as it's breathable so it's not stuffy.

There are lots of types, too, like earloop, for hijab, and head-loop. It's available in many sizes, including kids' size. Let's continue our cook. I think it needs more green, so I'm adding more green onions. To make it more fragrant, we'll finish it with margarine, but it's optional. I'm not using a lot. To make it even more similar to restaurants, you can add flavor enhancers, to taste. It's definitely savory and fragrant because we fried the eggs until they're really fragrant. There's the fish sauce, too, exuding a pungent aroma. This is a very good dish to make. Just follow the recipe I've written in the description box.
