    Stir-fry needs constant attention to insure equal heat distribution to all ingredients. 'Regular' frying requires some attention. You can walk away for a minute or two when you're frying an egg and you can leave frying chicken and other meats unattended for somewhat longer. And all you do is flip, you don't stir.

    Scrambling an egg is a stir-frying.

    Stir frying is at high heat with only 1 tbsp of oil.

    Regular the food is immersed in oil.

    Placing the item in the Hot Pan, and letting it lay until cooked.

    Stir frying, is constant moving (and maybe flipping) of the item until cooked.

    None really as you'd stir whatever you were frying in a pan to prevent sticking. Of course deep frying is different as there you have a pool of very hot oil into which you immerse whatever it is you're frying in the oil; e.g., hush puppies.

    It is the difference between deep frying chicken by submerging it in a pot of oil, or surface frying cut-up chicken in a shallow pan with a light coating of oil and stirring it to prevent it from sticking. Pan frying would be stir frying.

      You don't stir an egg fried sunny-side up. You don't even flip it. You just fry it on the bottom. You don't stir pancakes.
