This is a quick recipe of fried rice made using ingredients that are available in most Indian homes. I have added carrots for colour and taste. You can also add other veggies of your choice.


2 cups basmati rice
Water and salt for cooking the rice
4 eggs
1 onion thinly sliced
2 spring onion finely chopped
2 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 carrot skin removed and cut into small pieces
1 capsicum deseeded and cut into small pieces
6 tbsp oil
3 tsp pepper powder (or to taste)
Salt to taste

  • Cook rice in a pressure cooker or a pan and keep ready. Allow the rice to cool down completely. (Make sure that the rice is not over cooked. The grains must be separate.)
  • Beat the eggs in a bowl, add 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp pepper powder and whisk till well mixed.
  • Heat 2 tbsp oil in a thick bottomed pan, add the egg mix and wait for a few seconds for the omelette to start forming. Break it into small pieces and cook well. Once done, transfer to a bowl and keep ready.
  • To the same pan, add the remaining oil and sauté the onions till they turn golden.
  • Next add carrots and capsicums. Cook in high flame and keep stirring for a few minutes till they are cooked. This may take about 7 to 8 minutes. 
  • Then reduce heat, add ginger garlic paste and sauté till the raw smell goes.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste and mix well.
  • Finally add the cooked rice and eggs and mix well. 
  • Garnish with spring onion greens.
  • Serve hot with Kung pao chicken or Gobi manchurian
