Chinese Egg Fried Rice is a very popular and a delicious street food which is very much liked by everyone. It is very easy to prepare right at home and can be dished out in no time. Assorted veggies that is easily available can be added. (For a veg. version, simply skip the eggs).
The eggs can be either scrambled or made into an omelette and then cut into strips. I made use of only red chili sauce but soy sauce too can be added instead of salt. This is a simple and a wholesome one pot meal which can be relished with or without any side dish. So check for a step by step guide with pictures to prepare it.
