Mushrooms and Chinese 5 spice powder together make this rice very traditional fare.

This dish is a delicate blend of flavours and textures that may not appeal to all, but it’s a “must” for those who like to experiment beyond the conventional Chinese fried rice.

Preparation Time : 15 mins.
Cooking Time : 10 mins.

Serves 4. Ingredients
 2 cups Chinese rice
 1/3 cup mushrooms, sliced
 ½ cup dried black mushrooms (shitake), soaked and sliced
 1 teaspoon Chinese 5 spice powder
 a pinch sugar
 2 tablespoons oil
 salt to taste


1. Heat the oil, add the mushrooms and sauté till they are tender.

2. Add the dried black mushrooms and sauté for 2 to 3 more minutes.

3. Add the Chinese 5 spice powder and sauté for ½ a minute.

4. Add the rice, sugar and salt and mix well.

5. Serve hot.
