How to Make Egg Fried Rice

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
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.
While the rice is cooking, cut the onion (spring or otherwise) into tiny pieces and beat the eggs lightly.
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.
Keep moving it around for a minute or so after the liquid egg has all dissapeared, and add soy sauce to taste.
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.
Feel free to add more ingredients such as ham, bean sprouts, peas, sweetcorn.
It goes great with sweet and sour chicken.
Always be careful when cooking eggs, If you are not sure then don't eat it.
