Egg Fried Rice Recipe

Fried rice is a famous recipe from Chinese cuisine which has also taken its form Asian cuisine. Whenever we come across fried rice, the first type that comes to our mind or at least to my mind is vegetable fried rice. However, there are a different types of fried rice and they can be prepared in many different ways. I will share my way of preparing Egg fried rice. Why egg? Egg has lot of protein in it and is very good for health. You can also do chicken or any other fried rice using your creativity.

Did you know? (From WIKIPEDIA)

A boiled egg can be distinguished from a raw egg without breaking the shell by spinning it. A hard-boiled egg's contents are solid due to the de-naturation of the protein, allowing it to spin freely, while viscous dissipation in the liquid contents of a raw egg causes it to stop spinning within approximately three rotations.

If a boiled egg is overcooked, a greenish ring sometimes appears around egg yolk. This is a manifestation of the iron and sulphur compounds in the egg. It can also occur when there is an abundance of iron in the cooking water. The green ring does not affect the egg's taste; overcooking, however, harms the quality of the protein (chilling the egg for a few minutes in cold water until the egg is completely cooled prevents the greenish "ring” from forming on the surface of the yolk).

Now coming to Egg fried rice,


salt to taste
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tbspn of chilli sauce
1 cup uncooked Basmati rice
1 tbspn vegetable oil /Olive oil (You can use ghee for rich taste instead of oil)
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup of spring onions finely chopped
1/2 cup green peas
1/4 cup of green beans and carrot
2 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup of capsicum or 2 green chillies


In a big pot, add some oil and fry the rice for 1 min. Now add enough water (water level must be slightly more than the rice) , salt and cook the rice in medium flame.

In a pan, add oil, onions,spring onions, green chillies and fry them for 2 min. Now add the beans,carrot and peas and fry them for 2 min.

Now add little water, soy and chilly sauce and mix well. Allow the vegetables to cook.

Add the beaten eggs and scramble them while they cook. Add salt and pepper.

Mix the cooked rice with this mixture and add salt and pepper if needed.

Serve hot.
