Egg fried rice can be made in just 10 minutes if you have some left over rice. You can also add any vegetables you like and make it a great meal on its own. No left over rice? no worries, just cook some rice, let it cool down and put it in the refrigerator for about 1hour and you are ready to go! I know some of you might ask, why not use freshly cooked rice instead of left overs? The answer is, when frying the rice the moisture in the freshly cooked rice makes the rice to steam and turn mushy instead of frying the rice. Now lets move on to the recipe,
