Egg Rice Recipe | Simple Egg Rice for Lunch Box | Lunch Box Recipes

Egg rice has so many nostalgic memories of my childhood. I was a very fuzzy and picky eater during my school days. Mom struggled to pack lunch for me since I bring back home almost everything untouched. I don't prefer rice mixed with any Kuzhambu and also hate almost all the vegetables. Egg rice was my mom's saviour since I finish this if it is in my lunch box. Initially,  I will not allow her to add mustard seeds, onion and it should be a plain rice with egg and salt. As years passed, I changed a bit and started eating this yummy egg rice. Really, I was such a silly girl during those days and I have completely changed after I moved to the hostel in Chennai while doing my PG. This recipe is very simple and it is a go-to recipe for lunch boxes during the busy weekdays. Let's see the preparation steps:
Egg - 6 (I used very small country chicken egg)  Rice(uncooked) - 1 Cup 
Onion -1 
Green Chilli - 2 
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 tsp(optional) 
Turmeric Powder - 1/4tsp(optional)  
To Temper: 
Oil - 1 tsp 
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp 
Channa Dal or Urad Dal - 1 tsp 
Curry Leaves - few
1. Cook the rice, spread it on a plate and allow it to cool completely. In a pan, temper it with the items under 'To Temper'. Then add the chopped onion and cook until it turns transparent.
2. Along with this add the green chilli, ginger garlic paste and turmeric powder. Saute everything for 3 to 4 mins in medium flame. Now crack open the eggs and leave it untouched for a minute. Add the required salt at this stage.
3. Now, slowly scramble the eggs. After the eggs are cooked, mix the rice gently without breaking the rice grains. Adjust the salt and switch off the flame.
Serve the yummy egg rice with any poriyal of your choice. It goes well with Chicken fry or Fish Fry. I served it with Chicken Masala.
Points to remember:
  • Don't scramble the egg too much and make it unnoticeable. Scramble it in a way such that few bits of eggs are visible in between the rice.
  • You can also add finely chopped carrot, beans and peas. 
  • Adjust the eggs as per your preference. You can also add 1/2 tsp of fennel seeds while tempering.
  • I added turmeric powder for getting the yellow colour. You can skip it. 
Warm Regards,
