  • Turn off flame and when fried rice is still hot, add chopped green onion, roasted cashew nuts and mix everything together.

  • Add pan-fried Tofu as topping if needed. Serve warm!


  • Use different type of veggies like beans, broccoli along with carrot if needed.

  • Use 2 tbsp of Raisins along with cashews if you like that sweetness in your fried rice. Make sure to fry raisins in a tbsp of oil before adding to fried rice.

  • For vegetarian option, use soft cottage cheese in place of Tofu as topping.
