Sausage Fried Rice

It was one of our really lazy days at home and was surfing the various blogs for something easy to make. Stumbled upon this recipe from sig's blog and decided to give it a shot. This is an easy recipe if you have left over rice. Sausages and peas are almost always available at our place and although its not come out as fancy as Sig's it sure tasted fine to us. I have altered the recipe a bit so the lazy me didn't have to spend more time in the kitchen :)

Cooked and cooled rice- 2 cups
Sausages- 2 diced
Carrots- 1/2 cup diced
Green peas- 1/2 cup
Shallots- 1/4 cups thinly sliced
Light or dark soy sauce- 2 tbs
Fish sauce- 2 tsp
Pepper- 2 tsp
Salt- to taste
Spice paste: 1 large shallot, 1 tsp of ginger garlic paste and 1 tbs of Thai Masaman paste
Egg -1 per person

Grind or mix the spice paste ingredients together and keep aside.

In a large wok, sautee the shallots till golden brown. To this, add the sausages and fry till brown. Now, add the carrots and while it cooks, about half way through add the green peas (frozen ones cook really fast). Mix well and now add the spice mix. Sautee well, till the raw smell dies. Add salt at this stage and then put in the rice. Make sure it is well coated with the masala/spice mix. On full heat, add the soy sauce, fish sauce and the pepper pwd and mix well till the rice is well coated.
I don't like a runny egg, so i broke the yolk and seasoned it with some salt and pepper.
