This is so simple that it doesn’t really justify being a ‘recipe’, but it’s n easy one to get wrong- the first time I tried it I stirred it too soon and the egg basically coated the rice and made it really claggy- not good! So I have typed up the recipe just to give you the quick and simple way of doing it!

Make your own healthy egg-fried rice at home!



  • 150 g basmati rice
  • 1 large free-range egg
  • low calorie cooking spray


  1. Cook rice according to packet instructions
  2. Drain through a sieve, and set over the pan to allow it to steam away excess moisture for a couple of minutes
  3. beat the egg
  4. Heat a wok/frying pan, spray with cooking spray and place the rice in it, making a well in the middle so you can see the bottom of the pan
  5. Pour the egg into the well, move a little of the rice aside to allow the egg to spread out a bit
  6. Leave for about 2-3 minutes- just long enough for the egg to ‘set’- but not to overcook
  7. Once the egg has solidified, stir it around and through the rice, making sure nothing’s stuck to the pan.
  8. Serve.
