  • Rice cooker


  • ¼ cup dragonfruit flesh only used frozen and drained out the liquid
  • ½ cup chopped green beans or veggies of choice
  • ½ cup pan-fried tofu and seasoned with salt
  • ¼ cup frozen corn
  • ¼ cup toasted cashews
  • 2-3 cups of cooked rice
  • salt to taste
  • fried shallots for garnish optional
  • oil for cooking


  • In a heated wok with oil, sauté green beans, pan-fried tofu, and frozen corn for a minute or so over medium-high heat. Then season with salt and turn off the heat. Transfer the mixture to a bowl.
  • Using the same wok, add a little more oil if needed, 'fry' the cooked rice until you see the grain starts to dance in the wok.
  • Use the back of the spatula and press the rice to loosen the grain (use light pressure and not mash it)
  • Then, add in the dragonfruit flesh and toss everything together until the rice is well coated with the color.
  • Place the cooked veggies and tofu in and give it another toss until well-combined. Season to taste and finally, add in the toasted cashews.
  • Serve warm with homemade sambal (check my blog for the recipe and video), pickles, tomato slices, fried shallots, and salad.


Serve this delicious rice with my homemade sambal for a spicy kick.
