For busy weeknights when you need a go-to meal, this Chinese fried rice can be a great staple. It tastes just as good as any restaurant version, but it’s much healthier since you have control over the ingredients used. The dish doesn’t need any side dish, but if you prefer to have it with some sauces, gopi manchurian, paneer manchurian, or chili gravy would be great choices.

To add depth of flavor, the rice is stir-fried at high heat in a cast-iron skillet or wok, which imparts a bit of smoky flavor and aroma. While a home stove may not reach the high temperatures of a Chinese restaurant’s stove, you can still make a great homemade fried rice.

In most restaurants, soy sauce is not added to fried rice, but this recipe includes a savory and flavorful sauce made with rice vinegar and tamari that perfectly complements the vegetables and rice. The separate, perfectly cooked grains of rice are tied together with this delicious sauce and studded with fresh vegetables, creating a delicious and satisfying meal that’s perfect for any occasion. All in all, this is a healthy, delicious, and easy-to-prepare recipe that is sure to become a staple in any kitchen.
