Recipe Notes

  • For a more authentic taste, substitute olive oil for sesame oil, however, don't go out and buy it, olive oil is just fine!
  • I usually use a ginger paste, but fresh or frozen would also be fine, the same applies for garlic. 
  • I have used wholemeal basmati rice, this gives extra bite and provides a heathy dose of fibre, however you can use which ever type of rice you prefer.
  • I have used four eggs, one per person, but we have a glut of eggs, so two would be fine. 
  • If you like your pieces of egg to be chunky leave them in the wells until they are almost cooked and stir to break up, if you prefer smaller sticky pieces stir them after about two minutes.
