Egg Fried rice recipe, Simple easy and quick one pot meal on its own. Pair this egg fried rice Indian way with your choice of curry or raita and it makes a scrumptious easy weeknight Indian meal.
Egg fried Indian style is a great way to use the leftover rice and few vegetables if some are leftover in your fridge. This is basically pretty much clean your fridge type of recipe. So you can use any vegetables of your choice.
I had few colored bell peppers in my fridge this time, but you can use whichever vegetable you have in the fridge. Broccoli, zucchini, cabbage, celery, peppers, cauliflower basically whatever vegetable you have or you like to eat.
You can make egg fried rice easy and quick, it just takes 20 minutes if you have leftover rice with you. You can use any variety of rice but I mostly make egg fried rice with basmati rice because that’s what I usually cook at home and also brown rice sometimes.
So you can make them with white rice or brown rice, long grain or short grain. Personally, I like to use long grain rice for making Indian style egg fried rice. If I am making Chinese style egg rice then, of course, I prefer short grain rice.
Tips for Making Easy and Quick Egg Fried Rice Indian Style
- Leftover rice is always a better choice than freshly cooked rice because the grain doesn’t stick together and stay separated. However, when you are using leftovers take care tp store them properly in the fridge.
- Always keep some chopped up vegetables in the fridge, not only for this egg fried rice recipe but it makes life easier as you can use them in a variety of dishes.
- Preferably use a non-stick pan that way it uses up less oil and egg or rice won’t stick to the bottom of the pan and rice grain won’t become mushy.
- When cooking vegetables don’t overcook them that way they still retain a little bit crunchy and taste great with soft cooked eggs and rice.
