Have given both the methods, both tastes good in its own way, so choose whichever you like :)
Method 1 vs Method 2
Serve hot with your choice of side dish or any manchurian.
- You can even crack the eggs and add it along with veggies but it tends to stick...so I prefer this method.You can choose between the two as per your preference.
- Don't skip spring onions as gives a good amount of chinese flavour to the fried rice.
- Chopping the veggies very fine helps in cooking faster. Sauteing the veggies in high flame gives a nice smoky flavour and also retains its crunchiness without the raw smell.
- I soaked the basmati rice for 15 mins then pressure cooked for 1:1.5 ratio(rice:water) for 4 whistles in medium low flame.
- Make sure to fluff the rice and spread it with little olive oil to make the grains separate.Allow it to rest atleast for 30mins.
- Dont add more soya sauce than mentioned amount else your fried rice color will be on the darker side also soya sauce will be over powerful.
