Fried rice is our familiar meal at home. It's a very versatile and simple one-pot meal to prepare even on a busy working day. I learned not to use overnight rice, but to cook the rice up front and leave it cool before frying.
It's a routine for me to use my mom's fried rice recipe. Our fried rice are always the brown version with dark soy sauce and chili paste. However, for this time, I'm giving myself an opportunity to cook a different variety of fried rice. I cook it in a brand new light flavor, with more greens. So finally, my fried rice has a new look. It's more photogenic, I would say. Taste wise, the aromatic scent remains irresistible!
