Egg Fried Rice is an easy fix dish for me for my sons lunch box at least once a week. Its perfect with the carb from the rice and the protein from the eggs. I also make it for parties or big dinners as its so easy to make and with a good side dish, everyone enjoys! Here is how to do egg fried rice.

First, lets talk about the rice. We will be using basmati rice for making fried rice. The whole idea is to get the texture right. Its very important that the grains of rice do not turn mushy. Here is how I do it. Wash and soak the basmati rice in water for 30 minutes. Drain the water. Add 1.5 cups of water to every cup of rice used. Cook in a pressure cooker, medium flame – for exactly 2 whistles. Switch off the flame and allow it to rest for 15 minutes. The pressure will release on its own during that time.

After 15 minutes, open the cooker and fluff up the rice. Immediately, transfer the rice to 2-3 plates to cool it down completely. The rice needs to be completely cool before you start cooking the fried rice.

Heat oil in a pan and add in the finely minced garlic.

Take couple of eggs and break in a bowl. Add in a pinch of salt and pepper. Whisk with a fork to combine. Move the garlic to a side of the pan and add in the eggs and scramble for a minute. Keep sauteing the garlic on the other side of the pan.

Once the eggs are soft scrambled, add in the rice, salt, pepper powder and spring onions. Toss well to coat.
