Looking for something easy for your family meal and yes looking for something with rice and egg which isn’t Chinese inspired, this is the perfect meal option. And what I love about this rice is the fact that it has that rustic streetstyle anda bhurji coupled with the goodness of basmati rice. Egg Fried Rice is one popular street food everywhere in India, popular for a quick lunch or dinner option. It is served with some chopped onions and a slice of lime on the side.
The finesse with which that vendor makes your rice is something which you can never achieve as he does that day in and out bit ofcourse you can enjoy somewhere close to the taste sitting at home for sure.

Egg Fried Rice (Quick Street style)
In a large container wash the basmati rice well till you don't see any whitish water. This is an indication that your rice will be cooked to perfection. In the a rice cook or a pan, add the rice along with oil (to get non-sticky rice) and some salt and of course water and boil it for atleast 15 mins or till cooked.
Meanwhile in a non-stick or iron skillet add oil and temper some cumin seeds for 20 seconds. In the same pan add the chopped onion, green chilli, garlic and ginger and saute it well for 5 mins or till the onion turns slightly off-whitish.
Add tomatoes at this stage and saute for another 5 minutes till you all all the masala. Now add all the ground masala/spices - turmeric, cumin powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder except the garam masala.
Let this cook on a medium flame for atleast another 5 minutes. Break the 4 eggs and scramble them well. Let it cook for 5 minutes on medium heat. Check if the rice is cooked by now.
Add the cooked rice after draining all the water from the rice to the pan and toss everything well on a high flame.
Toss well for 5 to 8 mins and now check for seasoning. Add the garam masala and garnish everything with chopped coriander leaves.
Happy Cooking! 🙂
