This fried rice is great with the pork and prawns, but it's still pretty tasty if they're left out. It's the ideal way to use up leftover rice that's had a day or two in the fridge. Fresh cooked rice works but not as well: it's harder to get each grain as an individual.


There are two parts in this post

The first part is the video of how to cook the Chinese style fried rice, and the complete recipe.

The second is a collection of ten time-tested fried rice techniques that will transform you into an expert.

These tips will elevate the humble fried rice to the next level, and turn it into a culinary wonder.
Read on &hellip

One thing common to all types of fried rice is that there are a set of universal techniques for any fried rice. The must-have distinct and well-separated grains should be sticky enough to easily pick up with chopsticks or a spoon, the exterior of the grains should be slightly brown and the interior remains soft, and the rice should be slightly chewy to bite.

Before we look closer at these technical aspects, let&rsquos find out which are the various popular types of fried rice and the differences among them.


Given the importance of rice in Chinese culture, it's not surprising that even over-cooked rice is put to use! Sizzling rice (also called crispy rice or rice crusts) can be made ahead of time - store in a sealed container until needed.
Sizzling rice is used in the restaurant specialty, Sizzling Rice Soup, where the rice sizzles and crackles when it comes into contact with the hot broth.


Recipe Instructions

You’re going to need some cooked rice, two eggs, and a handful each of onion, carrot, scallion, ham, and peas.

(Dad was home for a week from Beijing, so he’ll be doing all the cooking in this here segment.)

Jake likes to sit and/or nap by our feet every time we’re at the stove.

We think it’s because of all the smells coming off the stove. Or maybe he just feels it’s his duty as the family dog to keep our feet warm at all times.

Once you’re ready, heat your wok over medium-high heat and add some oil. Throw in the egg and scramble it up.

Take it out and set it aside for later.

Put some more oil into the pan and cook your onion and carrot for a couple minutes.

Then add the ham and let it crisp up a bit.

And the rice. Give it some good stirring action.

A splash of soy sauce. Don’t go overboard with this! A couple teaspoons should do it.

Then stir your egg back in.

Stir it until it’s all combined and until…it just feels right. Don’t worry. You’ll know.

Then serve up your homemade Chinese banquet fried rice!

Make Special Fried Rice – Perfect in Chinese style

Special Fried rice – Chinese style

Special fried rice in Chinese style is what I said in the title. But let me confess, I don’t use MSG in my fried rice recipe like the real restaurant style fried rice. And why should I?. I couldn’t find a big difference between my fried rice recipe and the restaurant version. There will be difference, but not that much to add the unhealthy MSG into a healthy meal.

When I started cooking myself, I wanted to make all those yummy and delicious dishes my amma used to make. I used to call her every day (even now I call her every day) for some recipe and made it until it came out perfect. Then when I gained confidence in my cooking, I started looking for recipes of those dishes that I used to enjoy only in the restaurants.

Chinese style fried rice had been in the first place on my list. But something kept me away from making it. Then I entirely forgot about that item. Then during one of our vacation trip, we stopped in a Chinese restaurant to have the lunch. The restaurant fried rice then evoked my homemade fried rice craving again. As soon as I reached home, the first thing I did was the research on making perfect fried rice. Not just fried rice, the perfect one but healthy. And that’s how I came up with the special fried rice recipe in Chinese style, the restaurant style.

Here are the things I noticed while making the fried rice perfect every time.


Recipe Summary

  • 1 ½ cups uncooked white rice
  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 cup small shrimp - peeled and deveined
  • ½ cup diced ham
  • 1 cup chopped cooked chicken breast
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 carrots - peeled and diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • ½ cup green peas
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ¼ cup soy sauce

Cook rice according to package directions. While rice is cooking, heat a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Pour in sesame oil and stir in onion. Fry until golden, then add garlic. When garlic is lightly browned, mix in shrimp, ham, and chicken. Fry until shrimp is pink.

Lower heat to medium and stir in celery, carrot, green pepper, and peas. Fry until vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in beaten egg and cook just until egg is scrambled and firm.

When rice is done, mix thoroughly with vegetables and stir in soy sauce. Adjust seasoning to your preference and serve immediately.


TIPS FOR MAKING THE BEST FRIED RICE:

Use cold rice: Cold rice makes the best fried rice the rice cooks perfectly and tends to not clump together. It&rsquos best to make the rice the night before but this recipe shows you how to make the rice the same day if you forget to prep ahead of time.

Prep all ingredients: This is a dish that cooks quickly so it&rsquos best to have all the ingredients prepped before you start to cook.

Use a large wide pot: A wok is the best pot to use for this recipe however if you don&rsquot have a wok, then a wide cooking pan will do. This help the rice to spread out and fry rather than steam as it&rsquos being cooked.

Add sesame oil: Sesame oil gives fried rice an amazing flavor. Just a few teaspoons goes a long way. The toasty flavor adds bold flavor without being overpowering but be sure to use it sparingly.

Scramble eggs in same pan: No need to dirty another pot, simply move the vegetables to the side and scramble the eggs.
