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. This is a basic Egg Fried Rice recipe made with leftover rice and customized in an Indian way. You can be done in just few minutes.

Mushroom Fried Rice Recipe

During my childhood days, my brother used to get me Mushroom and Egg Fried Rice from a nearby restaurant on Friday nights. I used to crave for it. The mushroom fried rice would taste so heavenly. Even now when I think of it, my mouth starts watering….slurp..slurp. For some reason, the restaurant is closed now. Last time when I went to India for a vacation, the first thing I asked my brother is to buy me was the Mushroom Fried Rice. You could ask me why I have to depend on my brother to buy me this Fried Rice. My brother till date keeps it as a great secret, and never tells me the restaurant name from where he gets it. Till date, I am not able to break his secret. Probably after reading this post (if he reads), he should tell me.

The Mushroom Fried Rice had always been a huge hit in my family. The restaurant chef used all the veggies that I have used in my recipe. However, I did not use the MSG salt (Monosodium Glutamate) as it is not good for health. You can use if you like it, but do not use it often. I hear often that this MSG salt (Monosodium Glutamate) produces hormone imbalance.Till date, I am missing that restaurant’s Mushroom Fried Rice. Usually, I love to have Fried Rice with Tomato Ketchup. Here, I do not get the same tomato ketchup that we get in India. Taste differs a lot. Whenever I make this recipe at home, I would give a big sigh and eat it with the Tomato Ketchup that is available here. This Mushroom Fried Rice recipe matches almost to that restaurant’s style Mushroom Fried Rice.

I would always have mushrooms in my fridge. I make Mushroom Kuzhambu, Mushroom Omelette, and Mushroom Curry often. I make this Mushroom Fried Rice only when my taste buds demands Chicken or Gobi Manjurian. My hubby and Sanvi just loves it. You try it out and let me know how much you family appreciated you for making this recipe for them.

Notes.

  • Be careful while adding soya sauce as it may turn the fried rice salty and dark brown in color. Moreover the taste will also differ.
  • While mixing rice with veggies and sauces, do it carefully otherwise rice may break.
  • You can add ajinomoto, but I do not add it as it is not very good for health. If you are adding it, then add just before you add rice and sauté it for a minute or so.
  • Do not overcook mushroom as it may turn soggy.
  • Do not overcook the veggies. They should be little crispy.
  • If you do not have time constraint, you can soak the rice in water for 30 minutes.
