How to make egg fried rice recipes :

this rice is so easy to make. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, then add some oil and scramble the eggs. Transfer them to a dish and add the remaining oil to your pan. Cook the Carrots and peas until they’re nice and soft, then add the garlic and cook until fragrant. Next comes the most important part. Turn your heat up (I do almost full heat) and add your COLD rice along.

Egg. Usually, you only need one egg, two at the most, to achieve the classic fried rice ratio.

Veggies. This is where you can get creative. I like to use a carrot, and peas, because this is a common combination found in frozen foods. However, feel free to do whatever veggie combination sounds good to you!
