Dash Out Sunday: Fried Rice with Edible Mustard Flowers Recipe

in ReggaeJAHM2 months ago


What do you do if the side dishes in your house are running low? Or, you don't have the cash to buy anything? So, fried rice is the answer for Asian people, including Indonesia, who use rice as a staple food.

Fried rice does not mean fried rice. It's more like something stir-fried. We only need to stir-fry the complementary spices and vegetables, then add the rice and mix them for a while. Easy as that.


At first, fried rice was made to use up the remaining rice that was still there at night, because rice would not taste good if it was stored until the next day. Over time, fried rice became a favorite menu that was made not because it "used up the leftover rice".

Fried rice is popularly sold at various street food vendors and restaurants in Indonesia.


Fried Rice with Edible Mustard Flowers

This time I will share with you the dinner menu for me and my mother. Fried Rice with Edible Mustard Flowers.

Edible Mustard Flowers.

Have you heard of mustard/mustard green flowers? This flower appears on the mustard plant species that have entered their last season. The flowers will later turn into seeds which are used for seeds.

We easily find them in the village, and several times I get flowers in my garden when I grow mustard greens.


Edible Mustard Flowers are also great eaten raw or as a salad. There is no dominating taste in these flowers so they are suitable to be mixed with other food ingredients.



  • One plate of ready to eat rice
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon of salt
  • one tablespoon of chopped garlic
  • two tablespoons of chopped onions
  • two handfuls full of mustard flowers, or to taste.
  • An Egg (optional)
  • Red Chilli Peppers (optional)

Cooking Instructions

- Step 1


  • Heat the oil, then stir-fry the chopped onion, garlic, red chili peppers.

- Step 2

After stir-frying the fragrant onions, add an egg. Then stir well so that the egg is textured like a scrambled egg.


- Step 3

Add all the spices, then mix well.


- Step 4

Add rice. Here you need a fast hand movement to stir the rice. If not, the rice will burn. Because at this step, the oil is no longer there, it has seeped into the stir fried spices and eggs.


- Step 5

I added mustard flowers at the final stage because I didn't want them to overcook.

For those of you who use other types of vegetables that take a long time to cook, then add the vegetables at the stage after adding eggs, before adding the rice.

- Step 6

Stir briefly, then remove.

- Step 7

Serve with slices of cucumber or pickled onions.

What do you think about dinner this time? Have you ever made fried rice, or tried fried rice at an Asian restaurant in your area?

সকাল সকাল আপনি তো আমার ক্ষুদাকে বাড়িয়ে দিলেন আজ, আমি জিহ্বার জলকে সত্যি নিয়ন্ত্রনে ব্যর্থ হয়েছি, কারন এই রকম সুস্বাদু খাবার দেখলে নিজেকে সংবরন করা সত্যি কঠিন।

I believe, in your village, you can find great veggie or you can find mustard flowers I think.

Have a great day, my friend.

Yes, I can collect this elements easily and I will also try this delicious recipe :D

Great! Don't forget to mention me if you cook this recipe later :)

We used mustard seeds in almoat every dish after shifting to the western part of country... at my native place in northern side of India we used to make a disk completed from the Green leaves of mustard plant its known as SAAG and its very famous in Punjab region...
Thanks for sharing...

I imagine in there full in some land, full of mustard flowers. So beautiful.

I often cooking the flowers everyday :)

How awesome for you to have a garden with those nice greens and flowers. I love mustard green but I have never seen the flower. I really have a craving for your rice right now yummy.

The flowers will rise after mustard green plants in the mature stage. Usually, I don't remove all plants from the ground. I just take out the leaves from the stem. So they will have flowers then.

Great presentation as usual! I have never seen a fried rice like this.

I always wonder though, how do the Chinese get that special taste to their fried rice?
Something about the fried rice made in the Chinese restaurants, but I’m guessing it’s some kinda lard that isn’t so healthy but tastes so good 😆

Chinese and Korean always have secret spices for all food. But yeah isn’t healthy.

Did you know about garlic blend with oil and keep them about overnight? The smell will strong but it will make the taste of fried rice is so good. But I didn't use it

A lovely recipe! I liked getting to know the edible mustard flower. It was something new for me.
Thanks for sharing your creative content related to "food", it was a pleasure.

Hey there. Thank you so much for reading my food blog. Nice to know you here. :)

It is also a pleasure for me to meet someone who lives in a South American country.
Luck, @anggreklestari

We make fried rice when there's leftover rice and when we don't want to make a big deal of cooking, so a dish that's done in a "second" 😅
I wonder how mustard flowers taste.

@JustinParke here on behalf of the ReggaeJAHM Community.

My whole family loves mustard greens, and this fried rice looks like a hit. In Cambodia, it's becoming less common to see the flowers sold along with the greens, but here in Suriname I've never seen mustard flowers anywhere. Keep up the awesome chefery!!
