Working out how to make perfect egg fried rice is like trying to boil the perfect egg. It sounds simple but actually it takes a bit if practice and trial and error to get it right. The most crucial thing is to make sure the rice is cooked and cooled before hand. The easiest way to cool it is to spread it out on a plate. The next bit is whether you scramble your egg first or add it in to the rice. Ken Hom recommends the latter and who am I to question my Chinese cooking guru. And to be honest it tastes pretty good, try it next time you make Chinese food, you may have found your perfect egg fried rice recipe.
