Egg fried rice recipe Indian

choice of vegetables used is up to your preference. using cabbage will enhance the flavor of fried rice.  So I would suggest using it. apart from that carrots are used. you can also put in some beans too but not too much vegetables. just a tbsp or two of vegetables will do.

there are two methods in making this rice, either you can cook all the onions, vegetables , ginger garlic paste and finally add eggs and scramble it. else follow this recipe of making scrambled eggs and then add vegetables and spices one by one. I make both the methods.

It is good for lunch box but i wont suggest as eggs when packed for longer leaves out a pungent smell which could be disturbing just like radishes and cabbage. If having it in hot pack, better else i would like to have it hot straight from tawa with some tomato sauce.

 So, lets see how to make Egg fried rice recipe with this quick video:

Step wise description of making Egg fried rice recipe Indian style:

firstly, heat oil in a pan, along with it, melt a tsp butter.

take 5 eggs, break them in a bowl, add salt to it

add pepper powder and mix well

pour into the pan, fry them until it gets scrambled well

to the scrambled eggs, add finely chopped green chilies and finely chopped cabbages

further add the vegetables of your choice, carrots, spring onions which are finely chopped

to this, add the finely chopped onions and fry for a minute

season with salt to taste and pepper powder 1/4 tsp.

again, add chilli powder. remember we have added green chillies, pepper powder as well. so if you dont want too much spice, you can skip chilli powder. add ginger garlic paste.

nest comes a mandate in any fried rice recipe: vinegar and soya sauce.

additionally, add tomato sauce and mix well, fry for a minute until well combined and raw smell of ginger garlic goes off.

Now, add the cooked rice. adjust the rice quantity while you mix with the masala. so, i would suggest adding little at a time and mix so that you stop at the right time else masala will go less for too much rice. but 2 cups cooked rice was just enough for this quantity of masala.

sprinkle some chaat masala(optional) and coriander leaves and mix again.

serve hot with tomato sauce
