Egg Fried Rice

The egg fried rice uses only 3 basic ingredients: leftover basmati rice, egg, spring onion. I hope my Chinese egg fried rice passes Uncle Roger rice review LOL. Easy and simple. Done in less than 10 minutes. You can make it in different varieties too, such as bacon fried rice or chicken egg fried rice.
