Thai Olive Fried Rice Recipe

For best results when cooking fried rice, use cooked rice that has been refrigerated overnight. If you do not like the idea of overnight rice , you can also use freshly cooked rice which has been refrigerated for at least 2 hours in the fridge. Refrigerating the rice keeps the grains dry so that they won’t stick to each other during stir frying. Alternatively, ‘tabao’ (takeaway) extra rice the day before, for making fried rice the next day.


  • 1/2 tsp + 1 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 egg beaten; add 3 dashes of white pepper powder
  • 4 cloves garlic peeled and minced
  • 4 shallots peeled and finely chopped
  • 1/2 tbsp shrimp paste
  • 150 grams minced pork marinate with (A); may substitute with chicken
  • 400 grams cooked rice (1 cup uncooked rice cooked in 1 cup of water) refrigerated overnight
  • 2 heaped tbsp chopped Chinese olives (or olive vegetables)
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp chopped spring onions

(A) Marinade

  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp light soy sauce
  • 3 dashes white pepper powder

(B) Serving Suggestions

  • 1/3 cucumber peeled and either sliced thinly or diced
  • 3 shallots peeled and sliced to thin shreds
  • 3 chilli padi thinly sliced
  • 1 Thai lime cut to 6 wedges
  • coriander
  • 3 tbsp cashew nuts


  1. Heat and grease wok with 1/2 tsp of oil. Cook egg, swirl to cover entire wok. Cook egg on both sides. When the egg is cooled, roll it up like a cigar and sliced to thin strips. Set aside.

  6. Turn off the stove. While the fried rice is still hot, add chopped scallions and egg. Stir to mix everything thoroughly.

  1. Where did you get your Chinese olive vegetables? Hmmm, may try to find when I am in SG next time. I used to have that with plain porridge as a kid – quite Teochew style of combination….hahahha. I also enjoy Thai olive fried rice quite a lot. There is even Chinese style olive fried rice (tried it in Soup Restaurant before, donkey years ago)!

  2. Love olives vegetables! The rice must be very tasty and full of flavours.

  3. May I know where you got the shrimp paste? I went NTUC but couldn’t find it. The closest I found was the rojak type of prawn paste… but I remember yours is pink in colour. Want to cook it for dinner today, but I just have to skip the shrimp paste.

  4. Very tasty and delicious fried rice!
