Chinese Egg fried rice is a street food style recipe. The most common form of Chinese fried rice consists of some mixture of eggs and vegetables with chopped spring onions and usually flavored with soy sauce,vinegar.
cooking rice is very important for this recipe. the cooked rice should be flaky and non-sticky.for this you need to soak rice for some time before you cook. if you add excess water than needed the rice will become mushy.
it can be served without any side dish but tastes good when served with any Manchurian gravy item. i prepared chicken manchurian.you can see the picture below.when you have leftover rice at home,you can prepare chinese egg fried rice easily within minutes.
