Fried rice is a delicious and easy way to enjoy a healthy and nutritious meal. It’s perfect for a quick and easy meal and is a great way to get your daily dose of vegetables. 

Fried rice is a complete meal on its own. However, it is also a great rice dish to accompany gravy dishes like chicken or beef curries. 

Plus, it’s a great way to show your friends and family how much you love them. Just be sure to choose a healthy vegetable to fry, and make sure it’s cooked perfectly – it should be soft, fluffy, and cooked thoroughly..

Another thing is that it is very easy to make, and takes only 20-25 minutes. Let me share my secret ingredient that brings out the unique peppery flavors of fluffy rice. 

My secret ingredient is pre-mixed Fried Rice Masala.

And to find the one that provides me with that well-balanced flavor, I looked from aisle to aisle picking all the available options. I tried the following brands to find the best one.

I have also rated the following based on availability, packaging, and additives information.

My Go To Fried Rice Secret Masala

Shan Chinese Egg Fried Rice Mix


  • No additives information

With Shan Chinese Egg Fried Rice Masala, I do not have to worry about grabbing different sauces since it has all I want to make a delicious hot pot full of flurry fried rice. 

This masala is very consistent in providing quality for years and also it is widely available so I do not worry about ever running out of it. 

And the good packaging ensures long shelf life as well.

Things I Look for Before Buying My Fried Rice Masala Packets


My top priority is securing food and drinks so that they’re not just safe- but delicious. For this, I ensure that the packaging is airtight for fresh levels of freshness and flavor!

Some of these brands offer sub-par packaging that ruins the mixed spices before the expiry date is due and may cause serious health issues. 


I would never shop at a faraway store just to buy spices. So, it is important for me that it is available at my nearby local grocery store


What is the secret to good fried rice?

The secret to good fried rice is using cold left-over rice and chopping vegetables small. The perfect ratio of rice to vegetables also makes a big difference. I always use a 1:1 ratio and that gives me perfect vegetable fried rice.

Do you put eggs in fried rice?

Scrambled egg, cut into small pieces is mixed with rice and vegetable combination to produce the delectable fried rice.
