Buttered Rice for Kids

I have many Buttered Rice recipes for different occasions & to accompany different dishes but this is the recipe I use consistently when I cook for my kids and little nieces & nephews when they come over. As with all my recipes, it is very simple to make and importantly very tasty! :-)
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 sticks fish sticks/fishcakes
  • 10 fish balls (optional)
  • 4 tbsp/ 1/2 cup of butter
  • 4 heaped soup bowls of cooked & cooled white rice
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup green peas
  • 1/2 carrot, grated (optional)

  1. Heat butter in a pan.
  2. As soon as the butter melts, put in the onion & garlic and saute' till it softens & becomes transparent.
  3. Put in the fishcakes/fish balls. Mix in till cooked through.
  4. Put in the white cooked rice. Mix well.
  5. Flavor with salt & pepper. Stir till all the flavors are evenly distributed.
  6. Make a well in the center of the rice. Break an egg. Do not stir. Let the egg cook between the rice on low flame.
  7. After 2 minutes, toss the rice around. Add the peas or carrots or both.
  8. Turn the fire off and serve. I love the rice to have some texture, so I'd have the carrots slightly crunchy. If you prefer to have the sweetness of the carrots to absorb into the rice, just cook longer...on low flame.
  9. Enjoy while still hot!
