how to make perfect fried rice
Tips
Cook the rice a night before you are making the fried rice ,i usually make it in the night and next day for lunch i make fried rice,this ensures the rice is not sticky and the grain doesn't break while mixing .
Leftover rice can be a good option too .
Just add very little soy sauce i skip it at times and it still taste wonderful.
Be careful while using salt as the rice,chicken and the sauces all have salt in it.
You can use sesame oil i somehow find it overwhelming ,use nay regular oil 
Always keep the flame high while making fried rice ,the veggies will loose their crunch otherwise.
the rice needs to be fully cooked not 75 % done
