How to make perfect fried rice

  1. Always make use of a wok to toss in Chinese rice and noodles. If you don’t have one then use a thin-bottomed pan or a kadhai.
  2. Use a big pan and do not overcrowd it. Ensure your pan is nice and hot before you add the rice and other ingredients to it.
  3. To yield amazing result, use leftover rice to prepare the mushroom fried rice recipe. Left in the refrigerator overnight, each rice grains will firm up, decreasing the chances of your fried rice turning out mushy as the grains won’t break on mixing.
  4. If you are cooking rice freshly then cook in a pan rather than a pressure cooker & make them 2-3 hours prior so that there is no moisture & the fried rice doesn’t lump together after tossing.
  5. You can serve the mushroom fried rice with a bowl of hot and sour soup and crispy starters like paneer parcels and crispy fried corn to create a sumptuous Indo-Chinese meal.
  6. Also, do not put too many sauces or else it will be soft and mushy. While cooking for kids, reduce the quantity of spices and sauces.

Tips to wash button mushrooms for fried rice

  1. Never soak mushrooms in water. Use a damp paper towel to wipe each mushroom, one at a time, to remove any dirt. You can lightly rinse the mushrooms with cool water and pat them dry with paper towels.
  2. You can also lightly dust them in plain flour and rinse them with water.
