Restaurant Style Fried Rice

Posted by on May 26, 2013 in Indo-Chinese, Rice dishes, Slideshow | 3 comments

This is a simple recipe for making restaurant style Indo-Chinese Fried Rice. You can serve this dish with Gobi Manchurian or Veggie Manchurian or just ketchup. It is cooked with less ingredients and simple steps but the taste is unbelievable. Ginger, garlic and soy sauce plays the vital role in this recipe. Another important thing is rice. If the rice is hot, it will certainly break when you fry it in the hot wok or pan. So make sure you cool the rice before cooking. It is even better to cook well in advance to making the fried rice. You can add a pinch of MSG (ajinomoto) which is optional. I try to avoid it most of the times. Enjoy the homemade fried rice!! Preparation time: 40 minutes  Cooking time: 20 minutes No. of servings: 6 Spice level: 3 out...
