Thanks, on the internet i found some website advising to wet hands with a little oil and then break the clumps of rice.

Would you advise to heat the wok then pour in the oil or do both at the same time

indeed i have in my notes that the rice has to be a day old or another method i found online was to cook the long grain rice and put it in the fridge for 2 hours then unfreeze it

Thanks all for the nice replies, also, it seems that the particular meat ingredients requires special cooking. For instance, the roast pork seems to have a red ring around the meat, like in the Soup on the picture i uploaded? how can I cook this or is there a particular method for cooking the roasted pork? also the duck is soooo nice, specially the skin very tasty.

After some research it seems that the roasted pork cut used in these plate is "Pork backstraps or Pork Shoulder" and then this is roasted in a grill with bbq sauce, now i im going to research the how to prepare the roasted duck

Special Fried Rice ingredients????????

Hi, I'd like to prepare a special fried rice like those in restaurants, I have tried to prepare Chinese food before but i do not get that authentic aroma that you can recognize miles away.

All Chinese food has a special aroma only found in Asian cooking, i was wondering if it requires a special sauce or oil or ingredient that gives it the wonderful smell.

I'd like to make special fried rice just like the one sold in my local take away, its the most delicious special fried rice that I have tried in London.

From looking at the different bits and pieces on my plate i can find the following in my special chow mein and special fried rice

Meats-----
1. chicken breast
2. roasted duck
3. roasted pork
4. ham
5. egg

Veggies----
1. Scallions
2. Peas

Rice or Noodles

Update: how about dark or light soy sauce? also any particular brand? what about oyster sauce?
