- Rice that has been freshly cooked should not be used. Due to the moisture, it will become clumpy, so it will stick to the pan. To get a crispier result, use leftover chilled rice, or precooked rice bags (for example, Uncle Ben’s).
- Don’t forget to add sugar. Sugar helps caramelize, and therefore adds color and flavor, even though it may seem odd at first.
- Garnish with fresh garnishes like basil, scallions, cilantro, etc. (or spicy condiments like kimchi) to add flavor to the dish.
- You should use fresh broccoli for this recipe.
- Fried rice should be prepared in a large wok at a temperature that stays high at all times.
- To make a smoky flavor signature for restaurants and takeout, cook the entire recipe over a high flame. Almost all Indo-Chinese recipes follow this rule.
