It is suggested to use cold, left-over rice (1 day or 2 days old) because it does not contain any moisture and reduces the highly chances of getting wet and mushy fried rice. If you can’t wait , then spread the freshly cooked rice on a plate or baking sheet and keep it in the air to remove moisture. Then refrigerate the rice for few hours before cooking.
Another important note is to use long grain rice (Basmati or Jasmine) as it comes out fluffier and less sticky than other types of rice.
Make sure that the rice is not overcooked.
You can use any vegetables of your choice.
