Egg Fried Rice

This is a super quick, simple and tasty dish. It is pretty versatile in that you can add pretty much anything that you want to it.  You can add any vegetables to this rice. I also added egg for more flavor. It is great for cleaning the leftovers out of your fridge and tasty enough that you would want make it from scratch if you did not have the leftovers on hand. Refridgerated, cooked long grain rice is ideal for this fried rice becuase the grains are seperated and firm.

Ingredients

Cooked long grain rice - 3 cups
Mixed vegetables chopped (carrots, corn, peas, beans, cabbage)
Spring onions - 2 chopped
Eggs - 2
Soy sauce - 3 teaspoons
Vegetable oil - 2 spoons
Ginger-Garlic Paste - 1 tablespoon
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Cook the rice with enough water. If using refridgerated rice, bring it to room temperature. In a wok or pan, add half the oil and add the eggs. Scramble the eggs and season with salt and pepper. Remove the scrambled eggs from the pan and set aside. 

Add the remaining oil to the wok and when hot, add the ginger garlic paste and fry till the raw smell disappears. Add the soy sauce, salt and pepper. Finally, add the chopped mixed vegetables and stir. Cook on high heat till they cooked partially and still remain crispy. 

Add the cooked rice and mix all the ingredients together. Toss together until the rice gets heated and turns crisp. Fnally add the scrambled eggs and toss together.

Serve warm with a suitable side-dish or just with ketchup!

We had it with Gobi Manchurian..

  37. Looks great. I recommend adding the rice before the soy sauce and giving it a nice sear for a minute or two. I usually skip the vegetables and use lots of shallots and garlic, like this.

  41. Hi Divya, a big hello from Harare. I came to your blog via the tiffinbox, and I am stuck as to which recipe to try first. The Easy Peas Pulao looks great (and easy for a clumsy goof like me). On the other hand, so does the Egg Bhurji, the Savory Bombay French Toast--yumm! and the Pesarattu. I'll be coming back again.
    Take care, have a great day.
