@ Chinese Egg-Fried Rice

Unlike some hurried versions in which the eggs are placed in one chunk above the fried rice, here they are first cooked like an omelet, which is then cut into small pieces and mixed with the rice, veggies and soy sauce, to make a lip-smacking meal-in-a-bowl fried rice. This Chinese Egg Fried Rice is also easy to serve as the egg pieces are uniformly distributed.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Cup Dual Taste Rice
  • 0.5 Cup chopped and par-boiled French beans
  • 0.5 Cup chopped capsicum
  • 1 Cup chopped spring onion
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • Oil for greasing
  • 2 pieces eggs
  • 0.5 Cup chopped and par-boiled carrots
  • 0.5 Cup chopped celery
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • Chilli sauce for serving

Cooking Method

Step 1 : Boil the rice. Each grain of the cooked rice should be separate. Keep aside.

Step 2 : Whisk together the eggs, 2 tbsp of water, salt and pepper and whisk well.

Step 3 : Grease a non-stick pan and pour the egg batter over it and cook on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes or till both the sides are lightly browned. Allow the omelet to cool slightly and cut into bite-sized pieces and keep aside.

Step 4 : Heat the oil in a wok or a kadai, add all the vegetables and sauté on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes.

Step 5 : Add rice, omelette pieces, soya sauce and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
