Egg fried rice is a simple and nutritious dish made out of cooked rice, vegetables and eggs by stir-frying in a wok or kadai. This simple and easy fried rice recipe can be cooked within 30 minutes. I had been making Chinese egg fried rice since many years. But recently, I changed the recipe. My daughter loves spicy egg fried rice without soy sauce. You can also call this pepper egg fried rice with vegetables as it has black pepper powder added to it. My daughter loves it that way.
I usually make the rice in rice cooker and then add it to making the fried rice. In this way, I can save lot of time during the morning rush hours when I have to get my daughter ready, pack her lunch and send her to school by 7.30 AM. You can also make egg fried rice with previous day’s left-over rice.
I used to add sauces like soya sauce and chili sauce in the egg fried rice. But recently, I had to change the recipe as per my little one’s instructions. You can add a teaspoon of chili sauce and ½ teaspoon of soya sauce if needed in the egg fried rice recipe.
To make the fried rice with egg, boil rice al-dente. Spread it on colander so that it dries up. Cook the vegetables in a kadai, add sauces if needed, add the black pepper powder and salt. I also add coriander leaves while cooking the vegetables as this enhances the taste. This is also optional. After the vegetables are cooked, I add the eggs and scramble them till they are almost done. Then I add rice and mix well. After tasting, I add salt if needed. I also add little butter to enhance the taste.
