  • 1.5 cups Rice I used Basmati rice
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 medium Onion chopped
  • 1 tsp Chopped Garlic
  • 1 small Carrot Chopped
  • 15 Beans chopped
  • 1 med - small Capsicum sliced
  • 2-3 tbsp Chopped Spring Onion a mix of green and white parts
  • 2 tbsp Dark Soy Sauce
  • 3/4 - 1 tsp White Pepper Powder
  • 1 - 1.5 tbsp Oil Any vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp Butter optional (but highly recommended)
  • Salt


  • Cook the rice and drain and keep it aside. Make sure the rice is not overcooked and still has a small bite to it. Spread the cooked rice on a large tray and let it cool completely.
  • 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.
  • Add the rest of the veggies (except spring onion), salt and cook till it's done.
  • Add soy sauce and pepper powder. Mix well.
  • Add scrambled eggs and cooled rice. Gently mix everything together, until it's combined well. Add butter, if using and give a gentle mix. Garnish with chopped spring onions.


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.
