Ginger and Egg Fried Rice (for Chinese Confinement)

Submitted by on March 18, 2014 – 4:30 pm5 Comments | 95,413 views

Ginger and Egg Fried Rice (for Chinese Confinement)

This is a simple recipe part of our Confinement Series for new mothers. Designed to be heaty, healing and part of a balanced diet – actually anyone can eat this! My version uses ginger juice (as I personally find the ginger shreds too spicy for my mild taste buds), but it is recommended to use the grated ginger flesh if you’re in confinement. Load on the ginger and black or white pepper! Other variations of this include adding chicken or pork, garlic and some neutral, diced veggies like choy sum.

Ginger and Egg Fried Rice (for Chinese Confinement)
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Chinese
Serves: 1
  • 1 tsp cooking oil

  • 1 egg
  • black or white pepper to taste
  • salt to taste
  1. In a frying pan on medium heat, add oil and start frying the rice (re-heating it for 2 minutes)
  2. Add in fresh ginger juice or grated ginger
  3. Add in fresh green onions
  4. Fry together for 2 minutes
  5. In the middle of the pan, open a hole and crack the egg directly into it, stirring and mixing the egg until relatively cooked
  6. Stir it altogether and add pepper and salt to taste
  7. Serve and enjoy!
Any benefits?

This recipe contains all the greats needed to get you through confinement (Sesame oil, ginger, black or white pepper ).
Ginger is excellent for warming the body and expelling wind (both important things to achieve during Chinese confinement).
It is a nutritious and delicious course.
This recipe is super easy to make. I would recommend making a bowl / jar of pre-grated ginger so you can whip this up in less than 10 minutes.

Any precautions?

This is a heaty dish and not recommended for people who can't too heaty foods or are currently overheated.


Fresh grated ginger, green onions and an egg – easy!

    Hi Lisa,

    As always, your receipe for this one meal dish is a breeze! Easy to prepare and wholesome 🙂
    Would you be able to recommend more dishes that I can prepare during confinement beside soups? Sorry if I am asking too much of you!
    But I feel more assured with your recommendation due to your wealth of experience! 🙂

    Thanks! – Fionn

    Dear Fionn, thank you so much for your sharing! For more confinement recipes, you can check out our entire “Yummy Mummy’s Confinement Diet” found on Confinement Story #7 here.

    Or here:


    We’re adding more to the repertoire as we go along, but you can find some basics here to start!

    Some other things as confinement food:

    * Steamed salted chicken (with the green onion and ginger sauce)
    * Sesame and ginger fried chicken
    * Wood ear and red dates steamed with chicken
    * black bean garlic and ginger steamed with pork ribs
    * Sweet ginger steamed milk
    * Ginger steamed chicken

    You’ll notice a theme – ginger and chicken. Wood ear and red dates are also good ingredients to mix in with confinement recipes. Also, avoid deep frying (hence the steaming).

    Hope this helps and stayed tuned for more! Thanks for your support.
