This recipe is easy and fantastic! actually the best fried rice. it is a real hit! Garlic Fried Rice is a delightful Chinese recipe. This rice recipe can be made in minutes and goes well with Almond Chicken, Chicken Manchurian and Chicken Shashlik.

This fried rice consists different ingredients (including salt and pepper) and yet every cook seems to have their own way of making it. Using a different fat, getting the garlic more or less brown, using different rice, and adding other seasonings are all ways to make it your own.

Any long-grain rice will work here. Long-grain rice contains more Amylose
 than Amylopectin which keeps the individual grains of rice from sticking together. Short-grain rice, on the other hand, contains more Amylopectin than Amylose . My recommendation is Jasmine or a high-grade Basmati will work as well.

Egg and garlic fried rice is a good option for lunch, dinner or just a heavy brunch. If you have some leftover boiled rice from last night, then there’s no better way to just toss it with some egg and garlic to cook this delicious and fulfilling fried rice. A takeaway from the Chinese cuisine, egg recipes along with some rice work wonders with kids as they would love such mouth watering recipes. An easy to whip up egg and garlic fried rice.


While you can make garlic fried rice from freshly cooked rice, I recommend using day-old rice that’s spent the night in the fridge. The reason for this is that rice gets hard when chilled, preventing the rice from breaking or getting mashed as you fry it. As it heats up it will soften again, so by the time the rice is done, it has a perfect fluffy texture.
