Quick Masala Scrambled Egg Fried Rice – Using leftover rice

Presenting a quick and very easy to make recipe, Masala Scrambled Egg Fried Rice. Ready in minutes, and super yummy too, this one is definitely best to give the leftover rice a great makeover. Read on for the recipe!!

Here’s presenting a new form to the recently posted Masala Scrambled Eggs recipe. The bhurji is always a win-win when it comes to lazy breakfast mornings, and also, when you want to whip up something quick for breakfast.

How about giving another makeover to the bhurji and if you have some leftover rice (or if not, you can just cook some plain rice separately), then with just the addition of few sauces, you will have a yummy lunch available to you within no time.

If you have seen my Masala Scrambled Eggs recipe, then you must have noticed that the bhurji is loaded with nutrients because of the inclusion of additional vegetables. This is the reason I have not added any more vegetables to the fried rice.

The good part is, all the three added vegetables, onions, bell peppers and spinach, are fried rice friendly and also make the meal more wholesome. All the ingredients together provide adequate amount of vitamins, iron, anti-oxidants and magnesium (to name a few), this makes it a nutrition-packed meal.

Continuing the tradition, here comes the 35th recipe under My Julie & Julia Project. For those who don’t know, I had started this project last year, under which I had planned to post 100 recipes from my kitchen by the end of the year 2019. But since I got busy with other priorities in life, I have planned to continue the tradition in 2020. So, this is the Recipe #35 for you all.
