Tips for Making the Perfect Sweet Corn Fried Rice:

Rice: Always use ‘Short Grain Rice’ for fried rice as they donot break while cooking and cooks quickly too.

Sweet Corn Kernels: Fresh kernels are always better but you can use frozen sweet corn kernels too. Just squeeze extra water after thawing the kernels. This gives the corn a nice bite.

Vegetables: whatever vegetables you use in fried rice, always chop them into similar or small size. This evenly cooks the veggies and also helps cook them faster.

Wok: Always use a slightly bigger wok when making fried rice as it gives them more room to fluff up. 

final step of how to make corn fried rice

Whenever, I make this Sweet Corn Fried Rice recipe, I always keep some for later use. Most of my family members love eating it fresh or hot.

But I love it cold for a next day office lunch, no hassles and no heating required.

I usually serve this with Chili Sauce like Sriracha or Schezwan Sauce, however, it can be eaten as prepared with no pairing.
