Fried rice is not only the ideal comfort food but also one of the world’s most well-liked rice dishes. For the home cooks, fried rice is the best way of utilising leftovers in the fridge, the reason why fried rice was originally invented in China during the Sui dynasty around 589 to 618 AD, in eastern Jiangsu province called Yangzhou. This is where the original famous Yangchow (Yangzhou) fried rice was invented and it is the most commonly served fried rice in Chinese restaurants all over the world. For my gluten free recipe, I decided to use steamed brown rice with prawns, eggs, baby peas and spring onions, stirred fried with fish sauce and salt. This dish is not only gluten free, but soy free, dairy free, corn free and nut free as well.
