In Chinese cooking, we start with oil in the wok, then beaten eggs, rice, then miscellaneous ingredients. Just season it with a bit of salt, ground white pepper, soy sauce and sesame oil. You can garnish it with some coriander and fried shallots.

Fried rice is a simple dish, most usually started with sliced onions, garlic, a tablespoon of vegetable oil and the odd splash of soya sauce. Variations to this include adding black pepper, sliced ginger, herbs, ketchup, chilli sauce and whatever else rocks your boat.

Basically, what makes fried rice so delicious is the sauteeing of diced carrots, onions, garlic and freshly grated ginger in sesame or peanut oil until soft. Add cooked rice, soy sauce, frozen peas and and stir. Finally a few bits of butter, s&p as needed, and you're done.
