Egg Fried Rice

Of all the recipes, my favorite are Egg Fried Rice and Noodles. It could be any fried rice not necessarily Egg Fried Rice. During my childhood days, whenever I go to restaurants, I order only fried rice and noodles.

I do not need any side dish in particular to have it along with fried rice. That’s because I love to have Fried Rice with Ketchup. When it comes to Noodles, I am very particular about what noodles it is. I have posted Mushroom Fried Rice and Egg and Soyabean Sprouts Fried Rice
. I wanted to post Vegetable Fried Rice, Egg Fried Rice, and Chicken Fried Rice since long time. Finally, now I have come with the Egg Fried Rice recipe.
