    My gran made this when I was growing up in Malaysia and I learnt to cook it and it's been my favourite fried rice since! For all the Marmite lovers out there, this is a wonderful dish!

    Serves: 2 

    • 185g uncooked white rice
    • 475ml water
    • 225g minced chicken or turkey
    • 1/2 tablespoon light soy sauce
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 2 pok choi stalks, chopped
    • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
    • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
    • 1 tablespoon yeast extract spread (such as Marmite®)
    • white pepper to taste

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Bring the rice and water to the boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. If possible, cook the rice a day beforehand and leave it overnight in the fridge or cook it a couple of hours before you are ready to use it and leave it to cool.
    2. Combine the chicken, 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce and pepper in a bowl. Set aside.
    3. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan or a wok on high heat and fry the garlic and chicken until brown, making sure to break the chicken up into bits as you go along. Add the pak choi, cooled rice and pepper. Stir for a minute.
    4. Reduce the heat to medium; make a hole in the middle of the frying pan and pour the egg into the hole. Add more oil if necessary. Cook for a minute until the egg starts to set, cover the top of the egg with the rice and cook for half a minute more; stir.
    5. Stir in 2 tablespoons soy sauce; then stir in the yeast extract spread. When everything has turned a slightly brownish colour, add some pepper to taste. Give it a final quick stir, make sure that the chicken is cooked thoroughly, and serve.

    Awesome recipe! My entire family loved it and none of them besides me loves Marmite. Excellent recipe and works great with substitutes like ground beef or cabbage.  -  03 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I had never had Marmite before, but picked up a jar last month and was looking for a recipe to try it in before I tried it on toast. This was excellent. It added a nice yeasty tang to the dish that I really liked..  -  20 Jun 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
