How to make Fried Rice | Best Restaurant style Sri Lankan Fried rice

This is a delicious and easy fried rice recipe with steamed white rice, egg, chicken, shrimp, and mixed vegetables. This is so much better and healthier than Chinese restaurants or takeouts!

This is my basic Fried Rice recipe. If you are a vegan, omit eggs, if you like chicken fried rice, Add fried chicken at the end. Get creative and cook however you feel like eating. You are the home chef so you have all the power.

In Sri Lanka, we love to eat Fried Rice all the time. Once I came to the USA, I tried many recipes. Over the years and finally figured out the perfect recipe for my taste. In this post, I have shared my recipe with you. This recipe will serve 4-5 people.
