I believe origin of this dish is China and now it’s a global food. Fried rice is a dish of steamed rice stir-fried in a wok, often mixed with vegetables, eggs, meat. It is sometimes served as the penultimate dish in Chinese banquets, just before dessert. Well this is piece of information from wiki. When you have left over rice at home need not worry you can turn it into a wonderful dish. This dish has countless variations when it comes to ingredients. You can create your own. All I used to make this dish is leftover rice, eggs, spring onions and green bell pepper. To enhance the flavor of egg and bell pepper use of spice is minimal.
- 1 Cup Steamed rice
- 2 tbsp oil
- 2 eggs
- ½ green bell pepper
- 1 small onion
- ½ tsp ginger paste
- 1/2 tsp black pepper powder
- ½ tsp chili powder
- ½ tsp soya sauce
- Few chopped spring onion greens for garnishing
- Salt to taste
Step 1: Cut bell pepper, onion lengthwise.
Step 2: Heat oil in a wok or a pan. Add chopped onions, bell pepper and ginger paste. Fry till brown in a high flame so that they are cooked but retain crunchy. Use lengthy spatula so that hands are safe while frying in high flame. Add soya sauce.
Step 3: Break eggs into wok, add salt, pepper powder. Stir fry for 1 minute or until egg is half done. Add rice and stir fry for 4 to 5 minutes.
Step 4: Garnish with spring onion greens.
