This is healthy version of the traditional chinese dish. Brown rice replaces white and ghee is used instead of butter. There’s nothing fried about the rice.
I call this fried rice but really there is nothing fried about it. I don’t fry anything frankly. Too unhealthy for me. I save those occasions for eating out. Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles anyone? While I’m not a fan of rice in general, fried rice I could eat all day. This is my healthy version of fried rice. This recipe uses brown rice instead of white and ghee rather than butter. You can substitute fresh vegetables vs frozen if you like. I find organic frozen vegetables are just as good as fresh. I make this rice dish frequently, just swapping out the protein. This time I used shrimp but other options are chicken breast, beef, pork and tofu. Sometimes I use 2 eggs, sometimes I use 3. This is a recipe you can definitely make your own. If you make this, I would love to hear what substitutions you make.
