How to Make Egg Fried Rice

0
Your rating: None
Egg Fried rice is a great dish that is extremely simple to make. It was a staple food of mine throughout university. This guide makes enough for 4 people.
What you'll need: 
A mug of rice
2 Eggs
Spring Onions (Regular onions will also work)
Frying Pan and saucepan
Vegetable/Olive Oil
Soy Sauce to taste
Wooden spoon
1: 
There are many ways to cook rice, including a couple given in our guides here. My personal favourite, when cooking normal white rice, is to boil it for ten minutes, drain it into a colander which is placed back over the saucepan and covered with a tea-towel or kitchen roll for five minutes. These extra minutes allow the starch to drain away as well as steaming the rice.
2: 
While the rice is cooking, cut the onion (spring or otherwise) into tiny pieces and beat the eggs lightly.
3: 
When the rice is ready, heat up a tablespoon or so of oil in a pan, adding the onions first for a minute or so. Next, add the rice, shortly followed by the egg, making sure to keep the whole lot moving around with a wooden spoon or similar, to keep the egg from fusing together and making an omelette.
4: 
Keep moving it around for a minute or so after the liquid egg has all dissapeared, and add soy sauce to taste.
Conclusion: 
This is really simple dish tastes great and can be cooked in 20 minutes or so. It's a nice lunch snack or a great side dish for any number of meals.
Tips: 
Feel free to add more ingredients such as ham, bean sprouts, peas, sweetcorn.
It goes great with sweet and sour chicken.
Warnings: 
Always be careful when cooking eggs, If you are not sure then don't eat it.
