“Apparently the secret of great fried rice is to first toss the cooked rice in peanut oil and then mix in the seasoned vegetables. This rice calls for a clear vegetable stock. You can use a highly processed and scary store bought one :) But for a really authentic and impressive flavour you can go to the minimal effort of making your own. The recipe I use is Clear Vegetable Stock (Su Cai Zhi) Cooking time does not include preparing the rice.”
