Egg fried rice (Chinese Style)

Chinese egg fried rice is a very common menu item in Chinese restaurants and a very popular one too.Though its a simple rice and doesn't much time to cook,but still there are a few things to note like the rice has to be just cooked enough and not over cooked.The best way to mix the rice is after chilling for 2 hours.Also,you may use your left plain rice to make a quick dinner or a lunch box pack.So,enjoy the chinese fried rice at home,do try it out !!!


Ingredients
basmati rice 2 cups
eggs 3 lightly beaten
beans 3 tbsp chopped small
carrots 1 shredded fine & long
peas 3 tbsp(refer notes)
garlic minced 2tsp
soy sauce light 4tsp
black pepper powder 1tsp
spring onion 4-5 sprigs (greeny part)
salt
oil 2tbsp (6tsp)
water 3 cups +1/4 cup


Method
-Wash the rice,soak for 15 minutes.Drain and keep aside.
-In a pot,add 3 cups of water,salt and bring to boil.
-Add the drained rice and cook on medium flame.Put off flame once its cooked.Spread it on a shallow plate,cover & refrigerate until use.
-In another pan,heat 1tsp of oil and add the eggs lightly beaten.Scramble it with a wooden spoon and cook until undone.Remove on a plate.
-In the same pan,Heat remaining 5tsp of oil,add the minced garlic.Saute until raw smell disappears.
-Add the beans,carrots & 1/5 tsp of salt.Toss it well for 5 mins and add 1/4 cup water mentioned.Cook covered on high for 6 mins,uncover the lid.Add peas and toss again for about a minute.The water should evaporate by now,if not dry up the water on high.
-Add the chilled rice breaking any lumps,add in the scrambled eggs.Toss it well.
-Add pepper powder & soy sauce.Mix well until combined.Adjust salt if required.
-Garnish with chopped spring onions & serve with some extra hot chilli chutney or soy sauce !!!


Servings~ 3 adults



NOTES
* As soy sauce and the cooked rice contains salt,add salt at the end accordingly after checking.
* You can use fresh or frozen peas,I have used frozen ones.If using frozen,thaw and then use.
* In the same way,you can prepare chicken or prawns fried rice,except that cook the chicken or prawns with water,salt and pepper.Drain the water and add to rice like eggs.

I had a request from one of my blogger friends for the apple orchard photos,here it is dear :)
