Servings 4 serving


  • 250 g long grain rice
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 4 eggs beaten
  • 2 spring onions sliced, to serve


  • Cook the rice following pack instructions, then drain, spread it out to steam-dry and set aside.
  • Heat 2 tbsp of the oil in a large wok over a high heat, then add the onion and fry until lightly browned, around 5 mins. Add the rice, stir and toast for about 3 mins, then move to the side of the pan.
  • Add the remaining oil, then tip in the egg mixture. Leave to cook a little, then mix in with the rice – stir vigorously to coat the grains or, if you prefer the egg chunkier, allow to set for a little longer before breaking up and stirring through. Tip into a serving bowl and scatter over the spring onion to serve.
