1. You can do this with your leftover rice too . If you have time, for better result ,cook the rice and when cool , put it in the fridge , in normal chamber . Use 4/5 hours later for fried rice .

2. You can use the shredded chicken too . In that case , after frying the ginger paste , add the chicken , then add soy and fish sauce . 🙂

3. You can use shrimp too . For that add shrimp after your chicken is fried well . If you cook shrimp for a longer time , it gets hard . You can substitute shrimp for chicken too . 🙂

1. If you don’t have brown sugar , you can alwayz substitute regular sugar for it.

2. To enhance the color , you may add 1 teaspoon of caramel too . Then omit extra half teaspoon sugar.

3. Some people add Coke or Pepsi to enhance the color and flavor. I haven’t experimented yet, but If you want , you may experiment. 😀 .. But careful , Coke is very sugary , so it will get caramelized with the heat and will become so tough . So add proportionately and cut the sugar amount mentioned in the recipe.

4. Don’t add any extra salt as the sauces contain salt.
