This fried rice is an Indo-chinese recipe. This recipe is also for beginners because it is fast, simple and easy to make.
You can make fried rice with left over rice. I have used basmati rice since it is more flavorful The variation from previous recipe- "Mushroom fried rice" is in the sauce. You can use different combination of sauces in different proportions.
