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.
