Posted on February 4, 2014 by Dzung Thuy Nguyen

Fried rice is easy to prepare and tastes great as a meal on its own. You can pretty much add anything you like to it to make your fried rice such as roasted pork, chicken and ham; vegetables such as peas, sweetcorn, spring onions, carrot, broccoli and asparagus; or even small, cooked prawns. Just make sure all your ingredients are chopped into bite-sized pieces, and don’t forget the egg! The following recipe is richly flavoured to become your delicious kind of fried rice.
