Japanese Fried Rice Recipe

Japanese fried rice is as easy to prepare as it is economical and is a great way to use left-overs. Short grain rice is more authenic but any rice can be used. For a healthy, low G.I. variation try using brown rice.

Tips for making perfect Japanese fried rice

  • Use Japanese soy sauce. It is sweeter than other varieties and has a unique taste.
  • Start with cold rice so the egg does not cook prematurely and become lumpy.
  • Use less oil by microwaving the mixed egg and rice before adding to the pan.
