Egg Fried Rice

My family absolutely loves fried rice so I prepared this classic egg fried rice recipe to satisfy them. It’s got a glorious butter flavor which makes it different from other fried rice recipes. If you ever make fried rice, this is the style to go by! It will go great with some Indo-Chinese Chilli Chicken or any Chinese gravy dish.  Enjoy 🙂

Time:

  • Prep time – 20 minutes
  • Cook time – 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • Cooked White Rice (Short Grain) – 2.5 cups (Cook without salt)
    • After cooking rice, set aside in the fridge till it is chilled (This is key for the perfect fried rice!)
  • Unsalted butter – 4 tbsp (divided)
  • Eggs – 2 (whisked)
