Through The Looking Glass

"See the world through the eyes of a creative contributor who loves to illustrate the small
adventures that life creates. My hope is to put down in words and portraits especially those things that are apparent yet not always on parchment. Today unique thoughts, accounts, illustrations, and experiences may not remain distinctive but satisfaction can still be derived from the recognizable sentiment of them and from the faithful bonds they create."

~Egg Fried Rice~

A friend in India (Becky) told me it was very easy to make egg fried rice and it was simple to cook it for her family. I didn't try any recipes until I found this one and modified it. My husband loved it!

  • Oil - 1 tbsp ~ I use Olive
  • Onions -1/2 ~ chopped thin/lengthwise
  • Green Chillis - 3 ~ chopped widthwise
  • Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 full tsp 
  • Green Pepper - 1/4 ~ chopped fine
  • Carrots - 4 mini ~ chopped widthwise
  • Eggs - 2-3 ~ whisk first
  • Pepper Powder - 1 and 1/2 tsp
  • Salt - to taste
  • Rice - 2 cups ~ cooked, works well for leftover rice
1. Heat oil in non-stick pan.
2. Add in onions, bit of salt, and then green chillis and fry till golden brown or transparent.
3. Add Ginger Garlic paste and fry for about 1 min.
4. Add green pepper and carrots and fry for 2-3 mins, until peppers are slightly cooked.
5. Now add the whisked eggs, cook, then scramble.
6. Add the pepper powder and some salt, as needed.
7. Add the rice in and stir, cook for 5 mins.

~This recipe is good for two persons and you can make another main or side dish or even absolutely nothing else to go with this since it is filling. You can add any other veggies to this, but adjust the other ingredients accordingly. Enjoy! :)
