This boiled egg fried rice is especially suitable for eggetarians who do not like the smell of scrambled egg. Some cannot eat foods with scrambled eggs as they get irked at the smell of it. Once the egg is broken, they feel it smells weird, they just cannot eat in spite of adding masala or sauces or whatever. I do have friends like that. Such people choose to eat hard boiled eggs instead.
Last week I had a friend at home for lunch, she feels the same about eggs. This is what I made for both of us. If you wish you can use sauces to suit your taste.
