Chinese Egg- Fried Rice
Unlike some hurried versions in which the eggs are placed in one chunk above the fried rice, here they are first cooked like an omelet, which is then cut into small pieces and mixed with the rice, veggies and soy sauce, to make a lip-smacking meal-in-a-bowl fried rice. This Chinese Egg Fried Rice is also easy to serve as the egg pieces are uniformly distributed.
