Tips :-

  • Can adjust the sauces according to personal taste.
  • While cooking the fried rice, the heat should be in high flame.
  • It is very important to cook the rice one day before for fried rice, otherwise 3-4 hours resting time. Don’t use hot rice for fried rice.
  • Cut the chicken into strips. I always use thigh meat for fried rice, it will give the chicken more, juicy and flavor.
