Notes -Leftover chilled rice is ideal in this recipe. But, if you don't have any, cook rice following the instructions mentioned above.-I've used chicken breasts to make shredded chicken. Swap it for prawns, lamb, beef, paneer, tofu, or add in more veggies like corn, celery and spring onions.-As you are cooking this fried rice over high heat, make sure all the ingredients are ready within arm's reach.-Remember all the sauces are laden with salt, so be careful while adding salt to the dish. 3.4.3177
