A tip for making the perfect veg fried rice
The main trick for making the perfect fried rice is the rice. Always, always use cold rice. But if you are short on time and do not have time to cool it down, just chuck it in the freezer for some time.
If you use hot rice, the veg fried rice recipe will be soggy and mushy. In a typical fried rice, the grains will be separated from each other. And to achieve thatYOU HAVE TO always use the cold rice.
What kind of rice is used for making the fried rice
Medium to long grain works best for preparing the veg fried rice. In this particular recipe, I have used the basmati rice. Short grain rice like the one used for sushi tends to get sticky and doesn’t pare well with fried rice.
