    Serves: 3 

    • 2 large onions
    • 2 green chillies
    • 15 cloves garlic
    • 2 teaspoons finely chopped root ginger
    • 200g rice
    • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • 2 to 3 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon chilli powder
    • salt to taste
    • 1 drop red food colouring (optional)

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hr 

    1. Slice the onions and chillies. Finely chop the ginger and garlic.
    2. Wash the rice and put in a pan. Cover with water and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and keep at a simmer. Keep checking if the rice is cooked. If the water level goes down, add more water.
    3. When the rice is almost cooked, quickly take the pan off the burner and pour it out in a sieve. Drain well. Spread the rice on a big plate so that all the steam escapes and the rice grains don't stick to each other.
    4. Heat oil in a wok. Put the garlic and ginger pieces in. Cook for 2 minutes. Add chillies and cook another minute.
    5. Add the onions in and mix well. Cook for 5 minutes.
    6. Put the eggs in and mix vigorously so that the egg gets cooked but at the same time the egg becomes more like scrambled egg in texture.
    7. Once the egg is cooked, add the red chilli powder and rice. Mix well. Season to taste with salt and add food colouring if liked. Warm through for 3 to 4 minutes, then serve.


    You can put some vinegar or soy sauce in the rice for enhanced taste. Serve with a dish like General Tso's chicken. Serves 2-3 people.
