“This fried rice is very easy and so popular for Thai and Chinese. Try this recipe and you'll find it is very nice taste. Serve with chili in fish sauce or called in Thai 'Nam Pla Prik.' Enjoy!!!” - by Karnjana

"This rice is absolutely fabulous. I eat rice everyday and was looking for something different. I'm amazed at just how good this simple recipe is. I used sesame oil and Jasmine rice. I also drizzled..." See more lime juice over the rice after it was finished. I think the cilantro and lime juice are essential. The only thing I will do differently next time is try it with two eggs instead of one. One egg doesn't seem too noticeable in the final dish and I think two will make it more like authentic fried rice."
"Very good. And easy to make. And picturesque: all the green of the
cilantro, green onions, lime, and cucumber is quite pretty. I've made it
three times now, with jasmine. The smell when cooking ..." See moreis great: the scent
of the jasmine combined with onions and garlic! mmmm...
I have some suggestions though: (1) If you're using dried cilantro, use more like a teaspoon. Dried cilantro is more dense and powerful than fresh, and this recipe calls for a tablespoon of fresh. (I made the mistake of using a tablespoon of dried once and that was way too much.) (2) The cucumbers don't add anything to (and I think even detract from) the flavor; I've skipped adding them after the first time I cooked this. (3) The lime flavor, however, does add something. It goes well, especially with the crab. "
"Overall, pretty good fried rice. I think the cilantro is what makes it; this is also what my mom likes to add in hers. I went all out and also chopped up some leftover lobster meat, for that extra bi..." See moret of color & class. A dash of fish sauce and white pepper, along with some semi-hot peppers, gave it an extra zing that the original recipe lacked."
