How to Make Fried Rice

Fried rice is very simple to make but delicious food item that most of us like. It can served as main entree or side dish. In this brief recipe tutorial we will discuss how to make fried rice with egg.

Ingredients you will need:

  • Cooked rice
  • Olive oil/Coconut oil
  • Minced garlic
  • Minced ginger
  • Green onion/chopped meat/pieces of chicken/shrimps (optional)
  • Choice of vegetable
  • Spice like salt, paper, cumin etc.

Step 1

At the beginning you need to cook rice. You can use any type of rice but fine, little scented rice will give it much more flavor. You can use a simple rice cooker to cook rice. You do not need to cook rice again if you already have leftover rice that you are planning to use for fried rice.

Step 2

We will need good quality coconut butter oil or olive oil to cook fried rice. Add few table spoons (depending on how much friend rice you are about to cook) of oil on the frying pan and turn the stove on to medium heat. Keep an eye on the oil and make sure not to heat it high enough to create smoke.

Step 3

Add minced garlic and ginger to the warm oil. The amount is entirely up to you based on your taste buds and amount of rice.

Step 4

Add all the cooked rice from step 1 to the pan. You will need at least 2 cups of cooked rice at this point. Feel free to make more but all your other ingredients have to be more too.

Step 5

Fry rice until it turns light brown. You can add sliced green onions, chopped meat, and pieces of chicken or even shrimps to add more flavour to your fried rice.

Step 6

Cook few scramble eggs at the middle of the pan or on a separate pan and mix them with the rice. You can use any type of eggs but organic eggs give fried rice the best taste.

Step 7

Add your favorite oriental veggies (peas, squarely cut carrot pieces) on top of egg friend rice. Finally, add some spice like salt, paper, or cumin according to your taste.
