furthermore, i would like to add some tips, suggestions and recommendations for a perfect veg fried rice recipe. firstly, i always like to prepare this recipe with long grain basamati rice for a non sticky result. you can also make it with sona masuri, but use it only if you do not have long grain option. secondly, the traditional chinese fried rice does not use any other seasoning, other than soy sauce and vinegar. you can even skip the addition of salt (can control with soy sauce) and pepper and add chilli sauce to make things spicy. lastly, stir-fry the finely chopped vegetables in a high flame before adding cooked rice. at the same time, do not overcook the veggies and it has to be crunchy and has to hold its shape.
