This 10-minute egg fried rice is an egg-tremely (can’t resist the bad pun) fast and simple dish to whip up using minimal ingredients. My mum used to cook this “emergency fried rice” during fresh food shortages in the pantry, and now so do I too.

All you need is some overnight refrigerated rice, eggs, garlic, shallots and simple seasonings. You will get a plate of fragrant fried rice that tastes good on its own. And with this base fried rice recipe, you can whip up other fried rice variations (such as prawn and yangzhou fried rice; upcoming recipes).

    Is it a must to refrigerate the fresh rice after cooking? Thanks! I dun like to keep overnight rice.

      the refrigerated rice keeps the grains dry and they won’t stick to each other during stir frying. Instead of overnight refrigerated rice, you can also use freshly cooked rice which has been refrigerated for at least 2 hours (cooking note 2).
