Golden egg fried rice

A takeaway favourite- so why not try it at home?


  • 5 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 4 spring onions, chopped
  • 2-3 eggs (you will need to separate the yolk and whites)
  • 500g or 2 packs of wholemeal rice (you need to use rice that has been made the day before and cooled or packet rice to compensate for this- or it will become too mushy)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • Frozen peas (optional)



  1. Separate the eggs into one bowl with 3 yolks and another bowl with 3 egg whites.
  2. Add the rice to the yolks and mix well until the yolk has coated all the rice.
  3. In a wok, heat some sesame oil.
  4. Add the white ends of the spring onions and garlic.
  5. Add the egg whites and stir fry for a minute or two until cooked through and scrambled.
  6. Then add the rice mixed with the yolks. Stir fry for a few minutes until all combined and heated.
  7. If you are using peas, add these now and cook for a further 5 minutes, mixing well, until the peas are cooked.
  8. Add the salt, white pepper and soy sauce.
  9. Top with the rest of the spring onions.
