Fried rice is the most common Asian meal that we keep making at home. It is easy to make by just cooking rice with vegetables like carrots, capsicums and French beans. Seasoning of soya sauce and vinegar makes it an appetising meal. Regular fried rice is a no-fuss recipe and is made pretty much the same in all households. But, Korean egg fried rice is a tad different and highlights the flavour of eggs (a lot of eggs) in its simple recipe that uses no spices. Why? Because egg is the hero here.
