  • The ingredients used in making  fried rice  vary greatly depending on the area of ​​the world in which you are. They usually include carrots, bean sprouts, celery, peas, and other meats such as chicken, pork, prawns, or sweet cooked ham.
  • In western Chinese restaurants they have been inventing their own varieties. You will find them with fried egg, spicy in the so-called “ Singapore rice ” and “ the fried rice ” that we find in Spain.
  • It also includes pieces of egg to give it color and it is usually accompanied with a bowl of soy sauce to add a more salty touch.
  • You can accompany your rice with soy sauce, it is optional. But if you do, keep in mind what type of soy sauce you are going to use. I recommend a somewhat powerful soy sauce, that is salty not sweet. It will be perfect for this recipe.
  • For this type of rice I have used a mild olive oil but the best thing in an Asian recipe is to use seed oil. You can even when the recipe is done add a few drops of sesame oil to flavor, it gives a delicious oriental touch.
