Egg Fried Rice

This is one of the dishes that I experimented on my parents and cousins a lot . Luckily my partner in crime also loves chinese, so I make it often . Yeah but it has to be served with Gobi Manuchrian, cause he loves it. So by default Fried Rice==Gobi Manchurian.

If you are planning to make vegetarian version just avoid the egg , if it’s seafood add fried shrimp and if it’s chicken fried rice add fried chicken seasoned with pepper and salt.


Basmati rice-1½ cup
Water- to cook rice
French Beans (chopped into thin round slices)- 6
Medium Carrot cut into small cubes-1
Capsicum cut into small cubes-½
Onion Chopped- 1 medium
Garlic Chopped -2 cloves
Soy sauce-1 tbs
Green Chilli Sauce-1 tbs
Spring onion stalks (chopped into thin round slices)- 4
Black Pepper powder (optional)
Salt- to taste

Boil water in a large sauce pan and add oil. Add salt and rice and cook the rice uncovered until soft. Drain the rice in a colander and run cold water. Drain well and reserve the rice.

Heat a large wok or pan, add a dash of oil and scramble the eggs. Keep them aside.

In the same pan add some more oil add garlic and sauté just until they are soft. Then add onions and sauté till translucent. Add carrot and stir fry until it is half done. Add the beans and capsicum and stir fry until all the vegetables are half cooked.
Add rice along with soy sauce,green chilli sauce, pepper powder, scrambled egg and stir for 2-3 minutes until the rice is heated up and mixed well with other ingredients. Before adding more salt taste the rice. Switch off the heat and add the chopped spring onion .Serve warm
