This sweet tasting, vibrant looking ketchup fried rice (tomato rice) is sure to please anyone with a sweet and savoury palate. Best of all, it is whipped up using common pantry ingredients (ketchup, rice, frozen vegetables).
I kept this fried rice very minimalistic, suitable when I want a meatless meal for a change. To make the fried rice more exciting, I will add hot dog, bell peppers and/or button mushrooms (as I did in the previous version). I’m really quite happy with this basic version most of the time though, since it’s delicious as it is.
As usual I start drooling at what you’ve whipped up. I read the ingredient list and it has all my favourites in them . Mushrooms, Bell Pepper, Hot dog. Yummers…drool…
I like no-fuss dishes like this. Hee.. I gonna get a bottle of jap ketchup to make fried rice like yours.
Nice photography, no unsightly shadows on the plate. How did you manage to do that?
Really? Jap ketchup taste better?
I have not done fried rice (any kind) for a long time! My “fried rice” is usually done in the rice cooker! HA!
didally: I took the photos without flash and brightened the picture :D
Thanks for the comments! :D
Wow! This looks so much like we do ours! I haven’t made fried rice in a looong time. You’ve inspired me to make some tonight since I have everything I need, I think!!!

Just want to let you know that I tried making this, minus the mushroom & substituted sausage with spam & added a tomato, it turned out really good!
I ate it with cream cheese too (my Korean friend once suggested that I ate kimchi fried rice with cheese, now I add cheese to almost any fried rice) :-)
Thanks for trying the recipes =) I haven’t thought of adding cheese to fried rice, gotta try it next time. Which cream cheese are you using?
Cream cheese is just what the name suggests, cheese but in a creamy texture.
People normally spread them over bagels & Philadelphia Cream Cheese is the most common brand, I’m sure you can find them at Cold Storage :P
Surprisingly, it’s hard to find (easy) Asian food recipes online that still taste authentic, so when I found out that you blog about (mostly) Asian food recipes, I thought I’d give them a try & so far I haven’t been disappointed yet :-)
Thanks for the info! Will grab one and add it to my fried rice next time, who could have guessed this is a secret ingredient? ;p Thanks for sharing =)
