How to Prepare Chinese Fried Rice

You can cook the delicious dish even when you are a beginner


Chinese fried rice is simple and yet delighting. For centuries, it has not failed to please.

To make your dish of fried rice delicious, the secret is not to use the freshly cooked rice for the day.   The freshly cooked rice is hot, steamy, wet and sticky.  These make your fried rice soggy.  A better choice is day-old rice.   Keep the rice in the refrigerator before it is fried.   If you have to fried, and it so happens that you don’t have day-old rice available, use 1/4 to 1/3 less water make a batch of rice.   This makes the rice a bit drier.  When the rice is cooked, spread it out on a baking sheet so, cool it off to let the steam escape.  Fry the rice only when it is completely cool.

Here we present a few fried rice recipes that you may try.  Good luck and enjoy!

    Dark Soy Sauce. It’s a thicker sauce, and adds a bit of sweetness as well. Still salty. In some recipes I’ve seen Oyster Sauce as a substitute, while others have said don’t use Oyster Sauce.

    Probably a thick soy sauce…But(t), I prefer to believe that it was beef gravy!

    I fancy that those that are overly concerned ’bout this, as they see it, “problemme”…are nose/butt pickers. And thus they believe everyone to be as they are…”Stinky-Fingered.”

    I believe its “Dark Sauce”. Its hard to describe but like its name, it is dark, thicker that soy sauce and add a hint of sweetness.
    Hope that helps.

    In order, I believe its: Agave Honey, Soy Sauce and lastly “Dark Sauce”. The last one is the one that she pulls out from the bottom.
    Hope that helps.

    If you use a fork you break the rice.

  17. Claudia Everhart March 12, 2013 at 8:25 pm #

    I think jasmine rice would be the best for this

    I really don’t understand why people are having such an issue with her using her hands to break up the rice. It’s not like youre about to eat that rice, shes probably cooking it for her and maybe her family. get a life people and grow up.
