PEKING FRIED RICE....

PEKING FRIED RICE


i always wonder why this dish is called as peking fried rice, but thats what it is called at most of the restaurants. Actually its fried rice with noodles mixed in it, frankly telling you I prefer the Peking fried rice any day, to the fried rice ,that we eat at the restaurants, as it is quite soft to eat while the fried rice tends to feel dry if eaten alone without any accomplishment or gravy. But a Peking fried rice can be eaten on its own.
I have posted the recipe earlier in the month of august which I am posting again for the whole post please refer here.
