Egg Fried rice

This recipe is one of my favorite recipe from my college days onwards. After knowing this recipe i love to make this whenever there are new visitors to our home. They don't know how simple it is right.. I used to make this without black cumin. One of our friend gave me good idea to add this in fried rice.Then i started hunting for this black cumin. But couldn't find that in 2 Indian stores. But he brought this to us and i started adding this to all the rice varieties.Specially to peas pulao, tomato rice, vegetable biryani,etc.. Here's the simple recipe for that simple fried rice. Even you can make everyone happy by making this!!!!

You will need:

  • 1 cup Tilda Basmathi rice
  • 1½ cups of water
  • 3 tbsp ghee/butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1 tbsp black cumin(gala jeera)
  • 1 cup mixed vegetables(carrot, green peas, beans)
  • 1 tsp white pepper powder
  • 3 green chillies(finely chopped)
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce(optional) I prefer without soy sauce!!
  • ¼ cup cashew nuts
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • pinch of ajino moto
  • salt for taste

Step 1:

In a rice cooker just cook the rice with 1½ of water. When it turns to cook just allow it to cool. After 5 mins using a fork just stir it carefully to release the heat from the rice.

Handy Hint:

Cook the rice a day before. So that the rice wont stick one on one.

Step 2:

In a non stick pan heat ghee and add black cumin to it. When it splutters add ginger garlic paste, green chillies and mixed vegetables to it and close with a lid. Stir it occasionally. When its fully cooked add eggs to it and stir it continuously till you get scrambled egg form. Now add pepper powder to it. Sprinkle some salt also at this stage. Switch off the heat.Now the mixed rice mixture is ready!!!

Step 3:

In another small pan just roast the cashews and raisins with 1 tbsp ghee till the raisins get ballon structure.

Step 4:

Add the mixed fried rice mixture to the cooked rice. Add ajino moto, soy sauce to it and stir it nicely.Check for salt and pepper.

Step 5:

Garnish with roasted nuts and rasins and serve with chicken masala. Click here for chicken masala recipe.
