I remember that the first time I ate Indian fried rice was in the United Kingdom. The Indian landlord cooked me a kind of rice called Biryani. It was mixed with chicken, spices, onions, etc., and its aroma made people unable to extricate themselves from it. In India, rice is not just a staple food, but can be combined with spices, vegetables, and meat to create different flavors of the main dish. Today’s fried rice is a type of Pilau Rice. Pilau Rice has many recipes, just like Chinese fried rice has many different recipes, it is more varied and special than Biryani. The biggest difference between it and ordinary risotto, such as risotto, is the order of the water. Ordinary Western-style risotto is to stir-fry the ingredients and put water at the end. Pilau Rice puts water first, then rice. This requires the right amount of water, which is more difficult. At the same time, the aroma of the water and the materials are fully integrated, and the flavor of the rice is also more sufficient.
