  19. it's interesting, this recipe reverses when the egg is added to the version I know (chinese), where the egg is cooked in a wok first before cooked rice is added

    1. Fiona I tried cooking egg first but found that the egg and rice somehow remained separate, adding egg after rice ensures that all rice grains are coated with egg and its gives it better texture.

  20. Sounds easy, good - the only change I would make is using brown rice. Alana from the UBC.

  42. This sounds great, will have to try it. I also like the fact no peas are added to the recipe, cannot stand them, yet they nearly always seem to be added. The spring onion adds the green colour nicely.

    This looks really delicious. The only changes I would make is to remove the Tabasco sauce and add a little sesame oil. It’s shocking how much more it tastes like restaurant egg fried rice with just a little sesame oil.

    Also, if possible, you should always cook the rice the day before, and leave it in the fridge. This looks really delicious.
