This Indian Style Triple | Easy Egg Fried rice would surely tickle the egg lovers amongst us. It tastes scrumptious. And it takes only in 30 minutes.
5 days of April have been passed already, and soon there will be Easter. What? Is Easter in 10 days? Really?
I am super thrilled. Are you guys excited too? Any plans for Easter Holidays?
Well, I don’t know anything yet, because I haven’t decided about how are we gonna spend those 4 days of holidays. This time I have delegated this job to husband dear. And I am quite sure that he will surely come up with a marvellous plan, or something really amusing which we all could enjoy together.
So, when I was thinking about the coming Easter holiday plans, I realized that Easter is almost here and surprisingly I haven’t shared any Easter-related recipes yet. How come this is possible? I should have shared at least a couple of Easter inspired recipes already. But I guess it’s better late than never because there is no wrong time for doing the right thing. What say? 🙂
So my idea for Easter dinner is this Indian Style Triple Egg Fried Rice which is very simple, and undemanding. And not to mention that, they will make a wonderful side for your Easter dinner. You can pack them for lunch, or they can be eaten any time when spicy fried rice craving strikes you.
This triple Egg-fried rice is an easy and quick to prepare recipe. And it tastes delightful as a full-meal meal on its own. Also, this can be a great accompaniment to your favorite curry or raita. So whenever you have leftover rice, you know what to do. This healthy triple egg fried rice is a remarkable way to use up leftover rice and vegetables. 🙂
I personally prefer using leftover rice, sometimes the one which is cooked and cooled beforehand to make sure that the rice doesn’t stick when I fry them.
I have made roadside eatery style version of egg fried rice which is really an egg lovers delight.
This is an Indian version of egg fried rice where I have used rice and eggs in 3 different ways. Those three ways are:
- Boiled and sautéed eggs
- Scrambled eggs.
- Boiled and grated eggs.
The rice is nicely fried with eggs and some vegetables such as onions, carrots, and tomatoes. For making this fried rice, you are free to use any rice you like. I usually use basmati, jasmine, or long grain brown rice.
