Egg Fried Rice

Egg fried rice and noodles are my favourite indian-chinese fast food in Hyderabad. I don't know what sauces go into egg fried rice, but some of the roadside vendors make it tastier than good restaurants. I tried this recipe today from my own imagination and it turned out good, though not as good as some of the fast food places in Hyd.



Ingredients:

  1. Basmati rice - 2 cups
  2. Eggs - 3 no.
  3. Oil - 4 tsp
  4. Cloves - 4
  5. Cinnamon sticks - 2 (1/2" long)
  6. Onion - 1 no. (chopped lengthwise)
  7. Green chillies - 3 no. ( or as required, cut into small pieces)
  8. Green peas and beans - 1/2 cup
  9. Capsicum - 1/2 (cut into small pieces)
  10. Cashews - as required
  11. Ginger - garlic paste - 1 tsp
  12. Soy sauce - 3 tsp
  13. Bay leaves - 2
  14. White vinegar - 1 tsp
  15. Turmeric powder - a pinch
  16. Salt - as required

Instructions:

  1. Cook the rice with 3 cups of water.
  2. In parallel, heat oil in a pan and add cloves, cinnamon, bay leaves and fry for 2 mins.
  3. Add onion pieces and fry until onion turns brown in color. Add turmeric, ginger garlic paste and fry for another 2mins.
  4. Add green chillies, capsicum, green peas, beans and fry until the veggies becomes soft. Add soy sauce and vinegar and cook for 2mins.
  5. Break the eggs and pour into the above mix and cook for 3mins stirring continuously. Add salt as required.
  6. Add the cooked rice to the above, mix well and fry for another 2mins.
  7. Serve hot.

first of all a well maintained blog, and thanks for ur recipes.

I would like to add a suggestion to point 5.

It would be good if the egg is done separately and then added to the mix, otherwise the egg sticks to all the vegetables.

Regards,
Gau
