Egg fried rice is a fried rice recipe made using scrambled eggs and rice. I have made restaurant style version of egg fried rice which is almost close to chinese style.
This is a chinese fried rice where I have used rice and scrambled eggs. The rice is nicely fried with eggs and some veggies like capsicum, carrots and spring onion greens.
This is one of the favorite food item searched on google using eggs. I have shared the most delicious and wonderful version of egg fried rice and its finger licking literally.
I received lots of appreciation after making it as it turned out exactly like the restaurant style fried rice. I would like to share many more indo chinese recipes one by one as I keep updating.
I love indo chinese cuisine and would like to post tried and tested recipes of chinese cuisine which are almost close to restaurant one’s or like the fast food centres.
Nothing could be more pleasing than making food recipes which are as good as restaurant one’s at home and having them. Making at home is very hygienic and using fresh food ingredients keeps us healthy too and gives a healthy feeling.
This is a very quick recipe using eggs where the eggs are beaten and cooked along with some veggies. To enhance the flavors, sauces like soya sauce and red chilli sauce are added and fried for more restaurant like flavors.
We just need very few ingredients like eggs, cooked rice, spices and sauces to make this delicious recipe which is very quick, easy and an instant recipe.
The spicy masala flavor of the recipes comes due to spices like red chilli powder, white pepper powder and chilli sauce. This one can be called as a masala egg fried rice.
In restaurants the rice that is used is a par boiled rice, but, since this is a recipe that is made at home, normal or ordinary rice can be used which gives even more better flavor than the street food. No need of using basmati rice.
To get a desi touch to it, just using normal flavor is enough for the perfect outcome.
This egg fried rice can be packed for kids lunch box or it can be eaten any time of the day. A recipe which is liked by many is shared below with the help of video procedure and written recipe.

3. I have used normal or ordinary rice since I wanted to make normal street food style version however, if one wants to make it with basmati go for it.
