Quantity Ingredients for Egg Fried rice
1 Cup Basmati Rice (soak for 30 minutes)
5 Eggs
1 tbsp finely chopped Ginger
1 tbsp finely chopped Garlic
2+2 tbsp Oil
1 large Carrot
1/4 Cabbage
10 -12 Beans
1 tsp Chili Sauce
1 tsp Soy Sauce
1/2 tsppepper powder
HandfullSpring Onions

Water and 1 tbsp oil while cooking rice

Salt to Taste

Cooking Method

Step 1) Soak the Basmati rice in water for 30 minutes and cook in water with some salt until the rice is 90% cooked..Do not over cook the rice..To get perfect strands add a tbsp of oil into the boiling water before adding the rice.This prevents the rice from sticking to one another.Once 90% cooked spread the rice on a paper towel to remove any moisture from the rice or keep under fan.This step is very important to get the best fried rice with single strands of rice.

Step 2) Heat oil in a pan and add the eggs , if you are diet conscious use 5 whites and 2 yolks (this is how I make normally at home) . Add a pinch of salt and some pepper powder and scramble the eggs.

Step 3) Heat oil in a pan and add finely chopped ginger, finely chopped garlic and saute it for few seconds. Next add in cubed Carrot, Cabbage, Beans and cook until the veggies are 80 -90% cooked do not overcook the vegetables we still need to retain some texture of the veggies.

Step 4) Then add the sauces - chili sauce, Soy sauce ,required salt and mix it again.You can also use capsicum if you like.Then add the cooked basmati rice and the scrambled eggs. Mix everything very gently and carefully.Do not break the rice.After mixing it add freshly ground pepper and some spring onions for garnishing.
