Making restaurant-style fried rice at home can be challenging. Here are five reasons what might be lacking in your homemade fried rice.

1. Using Freshly Cooked Rice

Freshly cooked rice is moist and prone to clumping. Using previously cooked, cold rice can ensure separate grains that hold all the flavours together.

2. Heat And Stir-Fry Method

To get perfect flavours and texture, keep the gas heat high and stir rapidly. Insufficient heat can lead to uneven cooking and a smoky flavour.

3. Improper Seasoning

Seasoning and flavouring with sauces and herbs play a key role in fried rice's flavour. Insufficient flavours can make your fried rice bland and boring.

4. Overcrowding The Pan

Overcrowding the pan with rice and ingredients can lead to soggy and clumpy fried rice instead of being light and fluffy. It is best to work in batches.

5. Not Using Day-Old Items

Using fresh ingredients, especially meat, in fried rice can lead to less flavour. Instead, use marinated meats to add richness and depth to the dish.
