  • This guy say he wants to show me his fried rice.

  • I like this guy,

  • but what the deal with the bracelet and the necklace?

  • Haiyaa.

  • How many bracelet does a grown man need?

  • The answer is zero.

  • Are you about to cook or about to go to music festival?

  • Right now, pandemic time there are no music festivals.

  • Take off your bracelet, Sherson.

  • Haiyaa.

  • - Now, there's been a lot of craze about fried rice

  • and what Uncle Roger thinks of it.

  • Ingredients are very simple.

  • The first off, vegetables.

  • I'm using long beans that are just sliced

  • and some carrots that are julienne.

  • - Vegetable, Haiyaa.

  • Uncle Roger don't like vegetable.

  • I think vegetable tastes likes sad,

  • but if you really need to put vegetable,

  • long bean and carrot is okay.

  • Maybe chef Sherson don't want to get constipation.

  • Okay, Uncle Roger can accept.

  • - For the rice, now.

  • It's a very sensitive subject, rice.

  • This has been cooked in a rice cooker

  • because that's how Malaysians do it.

  • - Oh my God.

  • What he say?

  • Replay, replay.

  • (voice squeaking rapidly)

  • - Rice. This has been cooked in a rice cooker

  • because that's how Malaysians do it.

  • - He cooked rice in rice cooker.

  • This is first time Uncle Roger hear rice cooker

  • in cooking video.

  • Finally.

  • Rice cooker is one of Uncle Roger's love of my life.

  • When Uncle Roger proposed to Auntie Helen,

  • I got down on one knee, brought out the rice cooker

  • and then Uncle Roger say, "Will you marry me?"

  • Open rice cooker and the ring is in there.

  • But now thinking back,

  • proposing to Auntie Helen is waste of rice cooker.

  • - And it's been left overnight in the fridge

  • to dry up perfect for fried rice.

  • - Okay, okay.

  • He's saying all the right things so far.

  • This is the type of dirty talk Uncle Roger like.

  • - Now, aromatics.

  • I've got shallots and also some garlic.

  • - Good, good, good.

  • See, he using shallot also.

  • Shallot is better version of onion.

  • Only poor people use onion.

  • If you can't afford shallot

  • take a part-time job, work harder,

  • and maybe one day you too can afford one bulb of shallot.

  • This guy chopping, so pro.

  • This chopping even better than Uncle Roger own chopping.

  • This chopping, so calming.

  • Who need therapy?

  • Just watch Sherson chopping.

  • No more depression.

  • - As for the eggs,

  • my eggs ratio are a bit more special.

  • I've used two eggs combined with two additional egg yolks

  • because that just gives more protein, more fat,

  • that will be delivered into flavor to the rice.

  • - This is good technique.

  • Uncle Roger stole this technique and use it in my own

  • egg fried rice video.

  • He used total of four egg yolk.

  • Four.

  • Let's kill off all the weak, high cholesterol people.

  • They should join the weak peanut allergy people.

  • Only weak people get their arteries clogged.

  • So weak.

  • - For flavor, I'm using sambal belacan-

  • - Oh, sambal belacan.

  • Malaysian chili paste, similar to what Uncle Gordon used.

  • - To replace MSG.

  • Okay, Uncle Roger.

  • I'm not using MSG.

  • I have pounded fried anchovies.

  • So with every bite of fried rice

  • you get this nice saltiness from the anchovies.

  • - Hmm.

  • Uncle Roger on the fence.

  • At least he acknowledged he not using MSG,

  • but he finding replacement for the umami flavor.

  • Don't be shy.

  • Sprinkle little bit of MSG on there.

  • It make it even better, because Uncle Roger always say

  • there is such thing as too salty, too sweet,

  • but no such thing as too umami.

  • Saying your food is too umami

  • is like saying you have too much money.

  • No such thing.

  • But okay, Uncle Roger admit

  • pounded anchovy flavor very nice.

  • Pestle and mortar is also authentic Asian cooking utensil.

  • We use it to make all our spices.

  • Many white people using food processor

  • to make the spice.

  • Food processor is so impersonal.

  • You press a button and then robot make the spice for you.

  • Haiyaa.

  • How it gonna be good?

  • But, pestle and mortar.

  • You have to crush it with your own hand.

  • You feel the spirit of the food.

  • Food tastes better.

  • If you have food processor at home, throw it out.

  • Buy pestle and mortar.

  • Do it the Asian way.

  • Asian people, we like smashing food with hands.

  • Just like we like beating children with our hand.

  • More feeling. (laughs)

  • But all that said, all his ingredient correct so far.

  • Let's see how his cooking go.

  • - Okay. Let's start cooking.

  • - All right, let's go.

  • Ooh. Nice fire.

  • - You want the wok nice and hot.

  • So the rice doesn't stick to the bottom of the wok.

  • - Correct, correct.

  • - I kinda feel that's Gordon's mistake.

  • That's why he changed wok.

  • - Look at the camera guy.

  • Look at the camera guy.

  • What he wearing?

  • What he wearing?

  • Who wear white pant in kitchen?

  • And also I feel bad for him.

  • All he do is point camera at wok.

  • So boring.

  • This guy probably went to filmmaking school.

  • Study all the great director.

  • The Kurosawa, the Scorsese,

  • and then he start working for Sherson,

  • and Sherson say, "Just point camera at wok,

  • and shut up."

  • - While the wok is heating up,

  • I'd like to add the seasonings to the rice.

  • - Okay, okay.
