Today I will show you how to prepare an authentic Chinese fried rice, one of the most popular dishes in Chinese gastronomy! A dish known worldwide, usually eaten alone or accompanied by some other dish such as chicken, pork or even seafood, its cooking is mainly done with a stir-fry in a wok with fat and high temperature, its main ingredients are carrot, egg, peas, bean sprouts, chicken, pork, shrimp ... and seasoned with soy sauce.
Legend has it that this dish was born thanks to some Chinese emigrants who, when they arrived at their destination, wanted to make the most of the leftovers of some food and that is why it occurred to them to mix all these leftovers with rice in order to make the most of them and that is where this delicious Chinese fried rice was born!
