Egg Fried Rice-Easy Egg Fried Rice Recipe

Egg Fried Rice is a very simple and popular Indo Chinese recipe. It can be prepared in a jiffy if you have cooked rice ready. It can be prepared with leftover rice also. When it comes to eggs, I prefer only omelet and egg scramble, so I love this egg fried rice very much. Today we will learn how to prepare Chinese Egg fried rice following this easy recipe with step wise pictures.

Finely chop garlic, onions, carrot and beans. This step is very important.

Cook rice and cool it well. The grains should be separate. You can use regular rice or basmati rice or long grain rice. Leftover rice can also be used for this recipe.

Heat 2 tsp of oil in a pan, pour beaten egg into the pan, add a little salt and pepper powder. When egg has set a little, stir and scramble it. Keep it aside. Our egg scramble is ready.


Heat oil, add garlic and saute for a few minutes.

Then add finely chopped onions and fry until translucent. Now add the finely chopped beans, carrot and stir on high flame.The whole process has to be done on high flame stirring continuously. Do not over cook the vegetables. The vegetables should retain their crunchiness.

  5. Delicious and colorful fried rice.. Looks very inviting..

  6. I love fried rice and make it often.I always use day-old rice so it's dry. I add a little water to a beaten egg and pour it into a big, oiled, heated skillet. It makes a large diameter very thin omelet. I roll it like a cigar and cut it crosswise into strips. I put it in the fried rice mixture and then pour a raw beaten egg into the mix and stir it rapidly.This makes it moist and creamy. I'm getting hungry now.
    Have a nmerry Christmas.

    1. For fried rice, you have to use only soya sauce. If you do not like it, you can omit it or add less.
