Egg Fried Rice

>> Friday, June 4, 2010

Thinking for a quick meal.. Here comes the easy, tasty egg fried rice. If you don't need the eggs, forget them, you will have delicious veggie fried rice in your plate. This is one of the easiest dish that could be made by any one and where you can let your imagination run wild. For example, add chicken to this same dish, you get chicken fried rice or add prawns and you have shrimp fried rice or anything you name it. The list goes on and on.. You can make mushroom fried rice, tofu fried rice, kheema fried rice etc just with this single base recipe.

Here goes the recipe..

Things needed
Rice - 1 Cup
Mixed vegetables( Beans, Cabbage, Carrot, Capsicum) - 1 Cup (Finely chopped)
Eggs - 3 nos.
Soy sauce - 2 tsp
Black pepper powder - 2 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Oil - 1 tbsp
Spring onions - 1/4 Cup (Chopped)

First cook rice by adding salt and 1tsp of oil to the boiling water. Adding oil will prevent rice from sticking to each other. While cooking the rice make sure that its not cooked completely. Just cook it to 80%, since rice texture should be crunchier for fried rice and not soft. Transfer the cooked rice to a large plate and let it cool.

Now heat 1/2 tbsp of oil in a pan, add the vegetables to it. Fry the veggies on high flame by adding salt, pepper and 1 tsp of soy sauce. Frying should be done on very high flame, so as to get the light smoky flavor like fast food fried rice. Cook the vegetables, still maintaining their crunchiness and color. Transfer the vegetables to a plate.
In the same pan add, eggs, salt and pepper and prepare scrambled eggs. Now heat the remaining oil in a pan, add cooked rice to it. Fry the rice on high flame by adding 1tsp of soy sauce, pepper and salt. Then add the cooked vegetables and the scrambled eggs to it. Fry the mixture for 2 minutes and adjust for salt and pepper at this point. Add chopped spring onions and turn off the heat.

Easy egg fried rice is ready to be served with tomato sauce or the stir fried prawns that could be made in few minutes.
