  • 2 cups of jasmine rice (uncooked)
  • 1 cup of diced ham
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of sesame oil (optional)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup of frozen peas and carrots (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 green onions, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Rinse the jasmine rice under cold water until the water runs clear.
  2. Cook the rice according to package instructions. Once cooked, spread it out on a baking sheet to cool and dry out slightly, which helps to achieve a perfect texture for fried rice.
  3. Dice the ham into small cubes.
  4. Finely chop the onion.
  5. Mince the garlic.
  6. Beat the eggs in a small bowl and season with a pinch of salt.
  7. Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat.
  8. Pour in the beaten eggs and scramble until fully cooked. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  9. In the same skillet, add another tablespoon of vegetable oil.
  10. Add the chopped onions and cook until they are translucent, about 3-4 minutes.
  11. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional 1 minute.
  12. Add the diced ham to the skillet and cook until it is lightly browned, about 3-4 minutes.
  13. Add the cooked rice to the skillet, breaking up any clumps with a spatula.
  14. Stir in the soy sauce and sesame oil (if using).
  15. Add the scrambled eggs back into the skillet.
  16. If using, add the frozen peas and carrots and cook until they are heated through, about 2-3 minutes.
  17. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper as needed.
  18. Garnish with chopped green onions.
  19. Serve hot and enjoy!
