Chinese Restaurant Style Egg Fried Rice

Chinese food served in different countries have different taste. I have made a lot of Chinese food and posted in my blog. They are what is popularly known in India as Indo Chinese food. Do check out that Fried Rice here.

The fried rice available in take out restaurants in US and UK have a different taste (not like the indo chinese fried rice). When I saw a site with the recipe for it, I knew I wanted to try it.

Handy tips

1. Never make fried rice with freshly cooked rice. Make it the night before and keep in fridge.

2. Never mix the sauces to the vegetables. Mix it to the rice.

3. Do not make every thing in one go. Stir fry the veggies, egg and rice separately and then mix.


Cooked Rice 6 cups
Onions 2 chopped
Green Pepper 1 chopped
Carrots 2 chopped
Peas 1.5 cups
Garlic 6 pods
Ginger 1 inch piece

Soy Sauce 3 tbsp
Chilli Sauce 2 tbsp

Eggs 4

Vegetable oil
Sesame oil

Green Onions a little to garnish

Method of Preparation

1. Heat oil (sesame and vegetable combination) in a pan/wok. Add chopped onions, ginger and garlic when the oil is smoking hot.

2. Cook for a couple of minutes and then add the peppers, carrot and peas. Saute for a few minutes and then transfer to a bowl.

3. Heat a little more oil in the pan. Add the eggs and scramble it. Transfer to the bowl.

4. Clean the pan and then add some more oil. Add the rice to it. Mix.

5. Add the soy sauce and chilli sauce. Mix well.

6. Now add the veggies and eggs back to the pan along with some salt. Mix everything together and stir for a couple of minutes.

Serve with spring onion garnish.
