  Soy sauce 1 Tablespoon
  Peanut oil 6 Tablespoon
  Long grain rice 250 Gram
  Eggs 3 , beaten
  Peas 250 Gram (frozen or fresh)
  Salt To Taste

1. Wash the rice under cold running water, then drain and boil in plenty of salted water; the rice should cook for about 10 minutes, or until firm to the bite. Once cooked drain and set aside.

2. Next move on to the eggs; crack the 3 eggs into a bowl and beat with a fork add half onion, salt and beat well; in a pan, heat a couple of tablespoons of peanut oil until hot and add the egg mixture. Now scramble the eggs until cooked through, not runny; once cooked, break them in the pan with a spoon or transfer to a bowl and break with a fork.
3. In another pan, sauté the ham in a little peanut oil, now add the peas, that have been previously blanched and cook for at least a couple of minutes.
4. In a wok, sauté the remaining onion in a little oil until soft. Now add the rice stir-fry for a few minutes, separating the grains pour in the soy sauce and mix well; now add the peas with the ham and finally the eggs. Stir-fry for another minute and your Cantonese fried rice will be ready.

5. Serve the Cantonese fried rice along with some hot soup.

The wok is a common Chinese pan, with a round bottom, designed for cooking over a high heat with a little fat.
