Egg Fried Rice
Rice - 1/2 cup
Carrot - 1 cut into strips
Cabbage - small piece cut into strips
Onion - 1 small cut lengthwise
Beans - 5 to 6 nos. cut into strips
Capsicum/ Bell pepper - 1 small cut in strips
Spring Onions - 1-2 nos cut into small pieces.
Soya Sauce - 2 tsp
Tomato Ketchup - 2 tsp
Egg - 2 nos
Oil - 3-4 tsp
Cook rice in sufficient water. The rice shouldn't be fully cooked. It should be little uncooked for any fried rice recipe. Drain the water. Hold the rice under cold water and drain all water. Put a tsp of oil and keep aside.
In a pan add a tsp of oil and stir fry all the veggies starting with onions, carrots, cabbage, beans, and finally capsicum. Put some salt and pepper powder and set aside.
Now take another tsp of oil and break the eggs into the oil. Stir continously till it forms into a scrambled egg mixture. Put some salt and pepper powder on this too. Now add the stir fried veggies and the rice and mix all. Add the soya sauce and tomato ketchup. Mix thoroughly. Check the taste and adjust salt and seasonings. Add the spring onions and fry for a minute. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves. Serve hot.
Note : I haven't added spring onions as i did not have it. This fried rice can also be made without using egg. Rest of the procedure remains the same. Be careful while adding salt as both the sauces also contain salt in them.
