For lazy weekends, this quick homemade egg fried rice is my first choice 🙂 It is one of my favorite Indo-Chinese food.

Why do I call it Indo-Chinese? Simply because this egg fried rice is made in Indian style. It tastes the same as served in many Indian restaurants.

How to make egg fried rice?

If you have leftover rice, then egg fried rice can be prepared within 15 minutes.

Heat oil at a high temperature. Stir fry the vegetables for 2 minutes, make scrambled eggs, add in cooked rice with sauces & spices. Egg fried rice is ready.

You can add the vegetables of your choice. Also, adjust the spices as per your taste.

Tips to make the best-fried rice with eggs at home:

  1. It is better to use leftover rice for making fried rice. The rice grains will be firm & will not break or become mushy when you will stir fry it.
  2. On the other hand, if you will use freshly cooked rice then the rice grains will be soft & they will break while stir-frying.
  3. If you are using rice that is made on the same day, then spread the cooked rice on a plate. Let it cool down completely at room temperature and then keep it covered in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. The rice grains will not break quickly while stir-frying it.
  4. Do not cook the vegetables completely. They should be stir-fried at high temperature for 2 minutes only. The vegetables should have a slight crunch in them.
  5. Use sesame oil for the authentic taste & flavor of fried rice.
  6. Always make the fried rice on a high flame. Keep all the ingredients handy like sauces and spices, vegetables, etc.
  7. If you want to make restaurant-style egg fried rice, then add cabbage to it.
  8. Finely chop the vegetables for making fried rice.
  9. You can increase or decrease the use of spices and sauces as per your liking.
  10. Egg Fried rice is perfect for kid’s 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.

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