32 EGG FRIED RICE

Egg Fried Rice


My older loves egg fried rice and whenever I ask him what he wants for lunch especially on weekends and the first he says is fried rice and with lot of green onions.

Rice - 1 cup( Basmati or long grain rice)
Onion - half chopped fine
Egg - 3
Carrot and Peas - 1/2 cup
Ginger and garlic paste - 1/2 - 3/4 tbsp
Salt as needed
Pepper Powder - few sprinkles( as needed)
Soya Sauce - 1 - 1 1/2 tsp
Green onions - 1 bunch chopped
Oil/Butter - 1 tbsp


Wash and cook rice separately with 3 cups of water( 2 cups for basmati and 3 cups of water for long grain or sona masoori) and cool completely. Best for this dish is long grain rice.


Microwave chopped carrot and peas with a dash of salt for 6 - 7 minutes.

Instead of onions can use the bottom portion of green onions.
In a bowl beat eggs with little salt and pepper powder and keep aside.

Heat oil in a pan and add onions. Saute till nice brown and add ginger and garlic paste. Mix and fry till raw smell leaves for a minute. Then add carrot and peas and fry for 2 -3 minutes. Then add half of green onions and saute till the leaves shrink. Remove these and keep separately.


In the same pan add eggs and fry to scramble them. Carefully turn them and also not do break into very tiny pieces. Fry till they are cooked. You will want to find some big pieces of scrambled eggs here and there right. Next add the cooked rice and the onion, carrot/peas mix and mix well. Also add the remaining green onions and soya suace. Gently mix well and serve with any spicy side dish like manchurian.

My friend is a vegetarian and he eats eggs. I asked him why do you eat egg though you are a vegetarian....? he replies that eggs are declared as vegetarian since 2-3 years and thus it is permitted :)

The egg fried rice looks nice. Will try with sauss :)

hai padma, is it raw green onions u asked to put in the end or shoulc it be lightly stir fried? plas let me know ...need to try this dish

Padma said...

I have mentioned raw green onions in this recipe. But you can add them before adding rice and saute lightly in oil and then add rice. My son like some fresh leaves here and there, that's why have added some on top. When mixed they cook lightly with the heat from the fried onions and rice.
You can add the raw green onions fully and saute till raw smell leaves.
I know am late in replying your question, but hope this might help you.
Thanks
Padma
