Egg Fried Rice


Its been a while since I have done any elaborate cooking. I want to spend as little time in the kitchen as possible. 🙂 I cant eat out everyday too. So most of my cooking  involves very little prep and cooking time.  One pot meals with a bang of flavours is always my favourite. This is one such recipe.

Fried Rice keeps appearing in our lunch boxes or dinner tables at least once a week. This is one of the quickest recipes to whip on a weeknight. You can add as many or little ingredients to cook this, and you can use leftover vegetables, meat, etc. At times all I add is scrambled eggs to the rice with little soy and oyster sauce.

This time I cooked this on the weekend, so had more time to  cut the veggies. Cooked the rice, tossed the ingredients and that it. As simple as that. I had posted few years back a different version of fried rice. I used basmati rice for that recipe and cooked the rice in stock for that extra flavour. This time I used Jasmine rice, it has a sticky texture and lovely taste on its own.



Jasmine rice- 1 1/2 cups, cooked

Eggs- 2 nos, beaten

Carrot – 1/2 of one, julienned

Cabbage-  1 cup, finely shredded

Ginger- 1 inch piece , julienned

Thai red chillies- 4 nos

Button Mushroom- 100g, around 7 nos sliced

French beans- 50gm

Oyster sauce- 1 tbsp

Dark soy sauce- 3 tsp

Salt- to taste

Oil- 2 tsp


  1. Prep all your ingredients.
  2. Heat oil in a wok; add the chopped ginger and saute it a few seconds. Then add the chillies and  all vegetables continue to saute. To this add the beaten eggs and scramble. Once the eggs are cooked, the sauces.
  3. To this add the cooked rice and continue cooking in high heat. Stir continuously. Check for seasoning and serve.
