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).

    I actually cook the fried egg first, then add the rice. As I cook the rice, the eggs get scrambled at the same time :-)
    But yes, rice coated with a little bit of egg makes it taste better.

    My family loves fried rice, I always fried the rice first and add the eggs later so I can get that nice yellow color on my fried rice. I am sure yours are yummy (^.^)

    I can eat fried rice all the time, I like cooking a bit more rice so I can have some leftover to make for a quick lunch and I just make it with whatever I have in the fridge.

      me too, fried rice is a wonderful one-dish meal to make so like you, I sometimes cook extra rice to make fried rice the next day :)

    Normally I just leave the steamed rice to cool before frying. I don’t keep rice overnight in fridge. :)
    Fried rice is a good choice when one is run out of idea on what to cook. :)

      yeah some people don’t like to use overnight rice. Sometimes, I cook fresh rice but refrigerate them for a few hours and they are ready for frying :)
