How to Make Egg Fried Rice

Egg fried rice - perfect for any Chinese meal or, of course, whatever you fancy.

Egg Fried Rice




For 2 good portions (or 4 smaller portions) you will need:
2 Cups of Rice – cooked in salted water and cooled *See my post on storing cooked rice
a couple of glugs of  Vegetable Oil
2 Eggs - lightly beaten 
2 Teaspoons Soy Sauce
2 Teaspoons Sweet Soy Sauce (Ketjap Manis - sold in Tesco)
a pinch of White Pepper

How to do it:
Get your wok out, heat it up and add about a tablespoon of vegetable oil. 
Fry the beaten eggs just for a few seconds - you don't want it cooked too much
at this stage. Remove the egg, break into pieces and set aside.

Now using the same wok - no need to wash it. Add another glug of vegetable oil and heat.
Add in the cooked (cold) rice and give it a good a stir.  

Now add the soy sauce, Ketjap Manis (sweet soy) white pepper and continue to fry and stir the rice for a couple of minutes.

When the rice is piping hot, return the egg to the wok.  As the egg was almost cooked, it will only take a few seconds.  Serve immediately.


Perfect served with my Chinese Chicken Curry.
