Indian Style Egg Fried Rice
A simple, quick and easy rice recipe for lunch or dinner. This tasty and flavor-packed rice is made with eggs and vegetables.
- 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)
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.
