What a complete meal! I love this recipe of fried rice so much. This is my take on the same recipe that I ate last week in a restaurant. I loved it so much that I tried to cook it at home. To my surprise, I nailed it! It tastes the same as the one I ate in the restaurant. If you want to add meat, feel free to do so. I don’t need meat though to make this recipe perfect. I usually eat it with fried chicken or dumplings. Make a dipping sauce by mixing fried garlic, soy sauce, lemon, and chili oil. Try it and thank me later!
