Fried Brown Rice with Egg

To make this fried rice, you’ll need, a good quality brown rice, bunch of vegetables to your liking, eggs, soy sauce, vinegar and a key ingredient, sesame oil. Yes, just a few drops of toasted sesame oil is crucial for this recipe. It provides a beautiful nutty aroma to this dish.

Now coming to the kind of brown rice you should use in this recipe. Always try to get long-grain brown rice. Here I have used Dawat brown basmati rice, which takes less than 15 minutes to cook. But you can definitely use any other rice of your choice. And I would recommend you to cook the rice a day before you are planning to make the fried brown rice. You can visit my “how to cook brown rice perfectly” post to know the step-by-step procedure.

After cooking the brown rice, refrigerate it overnight. It helps in removing excess moisture from the rice and thus preventing the fried rice from becoming sticky and soggy. So always avoid using freshly cooked rice for this dish. This recipe is also suitable for leftover rice.

Then fry garlic, spring onions, carrots and french beans for a few minutes. Add the beaten eggs on one side of the wok, allow it to cook for a few minutes and then roughly chop it into thin strips. These thin strips look and taste really good. So for this recipe, you should always avoid making scrambled eggs.

Pour the cooked and refrigerated rice into the wok along with soy mixture. Toss everything nicely. Season with salt and pepper. Then, in the end, pour sesame oil and spring onion greens. Mix well. After adding sesame oil do not cook the rice for too long, as the toasty aroma of the oil will fade away. Sprinkle fresh spring onion greens and serve hot.
