Egg Fried Rice

This is one of the quickest recipe which I make in the mornings for lunch pack. Healthy for kids since this has egg and veggies. I generally make fried rice with ordinary raw rice (sona masoori) since this is easy to cook. Basmati rice or Jeeraga Samaba rice is reserved for Biriyanis.

Raw rice - 2 cups

Water - 4 cups
Ghee - 50 grams
Onions - 125 grams
Vegetables (carrots, beans) - 75 grams
ginger/garlic paste - 10 grams
Green chillies - 10 grams
Eggs - 2nos
Salt - to taste
Coriander leaves /Mint leaves - few

Cloves - 10
Cardamom - 3
Cinnamon - 1 inch stick
star anise - 1
Bay leaf - one
nutmeg - little
Fennel seeds - 10 grams


  • Cook the rice with enough water and salt.
  • Beat the egg with a pinch of salt and keep aside.
  • In a kadai pour little ghee. Add all the dry spices and saute.
  • Add the chopped onions, green chillies, ginger/garlic paste.
  • Saute until the onions turn translucent.
  • Add the remaining vegetables. Sprinkle salt.
  • Sprinkle a handful of water. Mix well. Cover and cook until the vegetables are cooked.
  • Pour the beaten egg. Keep stirring until the egg is mixed evenly and becomes a scramble.
  • Now add the rice and mix well.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves and mint leaves.

Egg fried rice is ready. Serve hot with raita or sauce.
