- 4 Eggs , beaten
- 1 Onion , finely chopped
- 250g Long grain rice
- 2 Spring onions , sliced, to serve
- 3 tbsp Vegetable oil
1. Cook the rice following pack instructions, then drain, spread it out to steam-dry and set aside.
2. Heat 2 tbsp of the oil in a large wok over a high heat, then add the onion and fry until lightly browned, around 5 mins. Add the rice, stir and toast for about 3 mins, then move to the side of the pan.
3. Add the remaining oil, then tip in the egg mixture. Leave to cook a little, then mix in with the rice – stir vigorously to coat the grains or, if you prefer the egg chunkier, allow to set for a little longer before breaking up and stirring through. Tip into a serving bowl and scatter over the spring onion to serve.
Try to use day-old rice. This ensures that there isn't too much moisture in the rice so that the fried rice does not end up being too mushy. If you are cooking rice on the same day, let the rice cool completely before stir frying. If you want more flavor, you can add a drizzle of my teriyaki sauce or oyster sauce (if you're not vegetarian).
