I think this is the best fried rice I have ever made. I used brown rice instead of white. I just realized that the eggs should have been cooked before I added them to the pan, that would have been better. I used chicken instead of ham and tried to add ground ginger but mistakenly grabbed ground mustard. I will definately make it again correcting my mistakes, we'll see how it goes. I also added chopped celery and frozen peas in the last few minutes.
