About this egg fried rice recipe:

For lazy weekends, this quick egg fried rice is my first choice 🙂 It is one of my favorite Indo-Chinese food. If you have leftover rice, then egg fried rice can be prepared within 15 minutes. You can add the vegetables of your choice. Also, adjust the spices as per your taste.

It is better to use leftover rice for making egg fried rice. If you are using rice that is made on the same day, then let it cool down completely and keep it covered in the fridge for at least 1 hour. In this way, the rice will not break quickly while stir frying it.

If you do not add eggs to the recipe, Veg fried rice is ready.

    My Tip:

    1. If you are using fresh rice, for making egg fried rice, then let the cooked rice cool down completely. Cover it and keep it in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. This will make the rice grains firm and they will not break easily while tossing the rice while making egg fried rice.
    2. Always make egg fried rice on a high flame. Keep all the ingredients handy like sauces and spices, vegetables etc.
    3. If you want to make restaurant style egg fried rice, then add cabbage to it.
    4. Also, do not completely cook the vegetables while making fried rice. The vegetables should have a slight crunch in them.
    5. Finely chop the vegetables for making fried rice. You can increase or decrease the use of spices and sauces as per your liking.
    6. Egg Fried rice is perfect for Kids lunch box. I have added Soya Sauce to the recipe but if you want to make it healthier, avoid the use of Soya Sauce, especially for kids.
