 Ingredients List

  • 4 c Cold cooked rice
  • 4 Eggs
  • 2 tb Water
  • 3 -(up to)
  • 4 tb Oil
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1 ds Pepper


1. Break up and loosen the cold cooked rice so that the individual grains
separate and the rice is no longer lumpy. (This is most easily done if you
wet your hands first.)

2. Lightly beat eggs with water.

3. Heat oil to smoking in a large deep pan. (The oil and pan must be very
hot.) Add rice and stir-fry over high heat, to heat through, turning rice
in a folding motion with a spatula so that it heats evenly and doesn't
stick to the pan. (Another way to do this is to press part of the rice
gently against the pan and let it heat a few seconds; then repeat until all
of the rice is well heated.)

4. Add salt and pepper, then beaten eggs. Fold eggs into rice either with
the edge of the spatula or a spoon. Then remove from heat and serve,
garnished with minced scallion tops or chopped Chinese parsley. VARIATIONS:

1. In step 2, beat the eggs without the water. Then stir into eggs 2
teaspoons sherry and 1/2 scallion stalk, minced. (Omit the scallion

2. In step 2, add to the beaten eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 scallion
stalk, minced.

3. In step 3, add eggs to the oil before the rice and stir-fry 1/2 minute.
Then add the rice and 1/4 teaspoon salt, stir-frying to heat through as
above. (Omit step 4 and the scallion garnish.)
