Traditional Egg fried rice

A light fluffy and tasty, egg fried rice is an easy stir-fry that anyone can make. The key to success is to use chilled cooked rice that has been well rinsed before cooking then stir fry over high heat for a short period as possible.

Ingredients: Serves 2

  • 1.3 cups (200 grams) cold boiled rice
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon light soy sauce
  • 1 stalk spring onion
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • pinch ground white pepper


  1. Loosen the rice as much as possible with chopsticks or spoon.
  2. Lightly beat the egg until the whites and yolk are fully blended.
  3. Heat an oiled wok over high heat until it starts to smoke.
  4. Pour in 1 tablespoon of oil to coat as much of the wok as you can (avoid non-stick wok if possible)
  5. Pour in the egg once it begins to set stir to help any running part set and scramble quickly, so it transforms into small separate pieces then turn out of the pan.
  6. Place back over the heat add the remaining oil and fry the garlic gently till golden brown now add the rice and stir fry continuously until the rice is piping hot throughout using a spatula to breakup any clumps.
  7. Return the cooked egg to the wok along with the spring onion continue to cook gently for several minutes till everything is piping hot then season with the light soy sauce, sesame oil, salt and white pepper giving everything a final stir then dish out and serve immediately.
