The Origin of Egg and Garlic Fried Rice
Egg and garlic fried rice is one of the most popular recipes from the family of Chinese fried rice variants originating in Greater China. Sometimes it is served as the penultimate rice just before the desserts at Chinese banquets.
Interestingly, this fried rice version gained popularity during the late Ming Dynasty of China as a way to accommodate the leftover rice. Food wastage has always been taboo in China for all good reasons.
In this dish, seasonings, spices, and even the vegetables used differ from season to season and from person to person. For instance, you can easily skip soy sauce in this dish if you prefer your fried rice more eggy and white!
Apart from the versatility, the economic value of using leftover food has led to the popularity of this recipe all across the globe, especially among younger generations and people on the go.
To double the dose of nutrition, add your favourite veggies and, in no time, everyone will ask for some more egg fried rice on their plates.
