Fried Rice Ingredients

There are certain basic steps to follow before making fried rice. The rice should be cold orelse it will be very sticky and make the dish soggy. To avoid that, wash and cook rice( preferably basmati, jasmine or any long grain) before hand and cool it. Cook chicken in boiling water using a seperate pan with little salt and pepper. Once cooked fully, drain the stock (can be used for any soup or gravy preparation) and shred the chicken into small pieces and keep aside. Now take a wok or pan, add a 1 tsp of oil , add eggs; just as whites begin to set, stir to scramble with salt and pepper and transfer to a bowl and set aside. .

In the same pan add the remaining oil and stir fry on high flame all the vegies except spring onions along with ginger and garlic with little salt. Once they turn slightly tender, add cooked rice, shredded chicken, scrambled eggs, black pepper powder, white pepper powder, soy sauce, chilli sauce, spring onions and mix well to combine. Cook until heated through for about 3 to 4 minutes.

MSG or ajinomotto is purely optional, its used in restaurants to enhance taste.

    Hi liked your recepie

  • rumi

    How can I preserve d colour of fried rice as white … it usually turns into yellowish or kind of reddish wen I prepare … pls suggest !!!

    • Rumi, Fried rice cannot be completely white… it has a light tinge of yellow and brown. But definitely not red unless you put in some kind of red chili sauce or ketchup to it. Over powering with dark colored veggies can make this happen. Solutions: Use a good kind of rice, use a drop of vinegar while cooking rice- this doesnt help with color but yields nice fluffy non sticky rice, add a pinch of sugar while making the fried rice – this helps the veggies to keep thier color intact. Hope this helps and thankyou!

  • Chris

    If my recipe specifies two fresh green chiles, and and I only have ground Mexican chile powder in my cupboard, how much powder do I add to equate to two fresh chiles?

  • sandhya

    hi ur recipe is good…i ve question can we use oyster sauce also to it?and can i use green chilli instead of green chilli sauce??and one more question is ok if don use white pepper powder will it make a big diffrence pls reply..thank.u…and nice website

    • Mullai


      Oyster sauce is little strong so use few drops and check the taste. If you can tolerate the fish sauce, then go ahead adding more. Finely minced green chilies are fine too and adding white pepper powder gives good flavour but its ok to use regular black pepper powder too. Thanks.

    hi mullai, Instead of using green chilli sauce.. can we use ground green chilli

  • malathy

    hi mullai……i love this recipe… seems so easy to make….i am expecting some guests in a few days….can u please tell me how much rice and chicken i have to add, if its for 5 adults? is one cup rice is equivalent for one adult?

    • Mullai


      Make 6 cups of rice and 2 whole chicken breast for 5 people. As consumption varies depending on individual, I would like to suggest something. Cook everyhting separately…. rice, vegetable mixture and shredded chicken, refridgerate. Prepare 5 cups for the guest, if you feel the shortage you can always make this in minutes.  So this way you dont have waste anything, plain cooked rice can be used later too.

    Hi mullai,
    I’m still waiting for your reply. Can you tell me where can I get green chili sauce.


  • crownlak

    Hi, I live in bay area, US. I could not find Green Chili sauce in any Indian grocery store(like India cash n carry, namaste plaza, bharat bazaar) and also in Chinese store like Ranch. Can you tell me where I can get it. thanks

  • crownlak

    Hi, You have mentioned 1 onion cut length wise in the list of ingredients. Should we add the onion along with other veggies and cook or we have to first fry the onion and then cook other veggies. thanks
