 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Mixed dried fruit, diced
  • 1 1/4 c Water
  • 2 ts Of vanilla
  • 1 tb Peanut oil
  • 1/2 c Whole almonds
  • 4 tb Butter
  • 1/3 c Thinly sliced onion
  • 1/3 c Sugar
  • 1 1/2 ts Cinnamon
  • 3 c Cooked rice
  • pn Salt
  • 1/8 ts Ground cloves


Here's an unusual use of the wok. I don't usually think of fried rice and
fruit going together...

Soak the dried fruit in the water with 1 teaspoon of the vanilla for 40

Heat the oil in a wok; add almonds and stir-fry until toasted, about 1
minute. Remove with a slotted spoon.

Reduce the heat to moderate and add 2 tablespoons of the butter.

Add the onions and stir-fry until lightly browned.

Add 1/4 cup of the sugar and continue to stir-fry until the sugar is melted
and lightly caramelized.

Add 1/2 teaspoon of the cinnamon and the dried fruit mixture. Stir- fry for
1 minute. Remove to a bowl.

Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in the wok; add rice, remaining
vanilla, sugar and the salt. Stir-fry until rice is in separate grains and
some grains have toasted lightly.

Push the rice up the sides of the wok and pour the fruit in the center. Mix
in the rice.

Turn out onto a platter and decorate with the toasted almonds.

Sprinkle with the remaining cinnamon mixed with cloves.

Serves 4.
