Egg Fried Rice

This Egg Fried Rice recipe is almost a staple at our place. Well, any recipe that’s quick and easy to make and tastes good, tends to become a “regular” thing.

I tend to make different versions of this recipe and this version is Jose’s favorite. He says it reminds him of the Fried Rice that we get at restaurants back home.

This is my go-to recipe on lazy days and also the days when my fridge is kinda bare. I tend to go two ways with this recipe – with bare minimum veggies or crowded with veggies ;)

But I like it best when the veggies are in proportion to the rice and eggs, just like in this recipe.

Do try it out and let me know what do you think about this, ok?

Here is the recipe…

  • Heat oil in a wide pan. Scramble the eggs and keep it aside.
  • In the same pan, add more oil, if required. Add chopped onion and garlic. Cook till it becomes soft, not brown.

You can also use left over rice to cook this dish. You can add veggies of your choice. I sometimes add mushroom and peas also. 
You can use different varieties of oil like Chinese sesame oil or Chilli oil for different flavors.
