Simple tips to making some good Chinese fried rice
Some perfectly chilled rice is the best to use. It fries nicely when it lands on the well-heated pan. If not prepared in advance, you can place it in the freezer for a few minutes before you prepare other ingredients.
Rice will end up being doughy, which does not create the best impression.
To achieve a perfect brownish color, it is advisable to use a few tablespoons of butter as the alternative.
Add greens to your recipe; this will both add to the nutritional benefit as well as add a touch of excellent presentation. The mix of relish also creates a perfect feel of freshness.
Cook under high heat to prevent clumping together of the rice. It also produces the characteristic brown tinge.
You can choose some oyster sauce for the lovers of seafood.
Be careful in the use of soy sauce due to the varying levels of sodium.
Ensure you cook the rice in less water, and cook until you feel a soft feel on biting.
You wash the rice in clean water and rinse it properly. Then boil the rice using the rice cooker if you want it easier
