Egg Fried Rice Recipe - Chinese Restaurant Style

Egg Fried Rice Recipe
Fried Rice is one dish I have been making even before I started blogging and now I can confidently say, it comes out well every time and its quite easy too. Hubby is fond of fried rice and that's the reason I started making fried rice at home. Each time I learnt from my mistakes and after few plus and minuses I got the knack of making the perfect fried rice as in restaurants. Now lets get on to learn how to make egg fried rice, shall we?
Gobi Manchurian or Baby Corn Manchurian is the best side dish for fried rice.

Have given both the methods, both tastes good in its own way, so choose whichever you like :)

Method 1 vs Method 2
Egg Fried Rice Recipe
Serve hot with your choice of side dish or any manchurian.

My Notes:

  • You can even crack the eggs and add it along with veggies but it tends to stick...so I prefer this method.You can choose between the two as per your preference.
  • Don't skip spring onions as gives a good amount of chinese flavour to the fried rice.
  • Chopping the veggies very fine helps in cooking faster. Sauteing the veggies in high flame gives a nice smoky flavour and also retains its crunchiness without the raw smell.
  • I soaked the basmati rice for 15 mins then pressure cooked for 1:1.5 ratio(rice:water) for 4 whistles in medium low flame.
  • Make sure to fluff the rice and spread it with little olive oil to make the grains separate.Allow it to rest atleast for 30mins.
  • Dont add more soya sauce than mentioned amount else your fried rice color will be on the darker side also soya sauce will be over powerful.
