This is hands down the best fried rice recipe you will find. I have tried many and this one is a winner by far. And I have more good news! It only takes 20 minutes to make it! Are you still hesitating? Come on, let’s start cooking…
The veggies I used in this recipe came from a simple “mixed vegetable mix” that you can find in your supermarket’s frozen veggie section. Of course, you may use fresh vegetables too, but I told you that you will have it ready in 20 minutes, so the clock is ticking. 😉
You can use long or short grain rice for this recipe; it’s doesn’t really matter. What DOES matter though is that before you boil the rice, you rinse it. Thoroughly. I am serious here. Just place the rice in a mesh colander and keep the water running through the rice until it’s completely clear. The process of rinsing removes loose starch, making the rice less sticky. I recommend boiling the rice the night before and keeping it in the refrigerator until you are ready to cook.
Serve your fried rice with fresh salad, meatballs, steak, fish, pasta, sushi or chocolate. Wait, what? Sorry, I got carried away. But seriously, it pairs well with everything. Today I served it with roasted eggplant, chicken kebab, tzatziki sauce and some guacamole. IT’S SINFULLY DELICIOUS!
