- STEP 1
Beat together the egg and sesame oil and put to one side.
- STEP 2
Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or large frying pan. When it's shimmering and almost smoking, add the rice and stir-fry for about 3-4 minutes until completely heated through.
- STEP 3
Add the broccoli, if using. Stir-fry, turning the rice constantly around the pan, for about 3 minutes. Season well with soy sauce and pepper, then push to one side of the pan.
- STEP 4
Pour the beaten egg mixture into the other side and leave for about 10 seconds so it begins to set. Using a chopstick, briskly swirl around the egg to break it up and then toss around with the rice.
- STEP 5
Stir-fry for a further minute and serve straight away.
