Hey Snigdha, I think i am going to be a big fan of yours. I really like your recipes as they are very simple to follow. However do you think leaving out the chinese salt would alter the taste of the fried rice ? I like chinese food but dont like aji no moto.

Hi Kaycee Thanks for the compliments. Well....not using aji no moto will not alter the taste too much. If you don't like it then you don't have to use it. In fact sometimes I totally avoid using china salt while preparing chinese dishes. Using table salt should work fine.

Hi, could you tell me what is 'China salt', can't find any reference to it, I'm in the UK so it well might be known by another name.

China salt is more commonly know as Ajinomoto or MSG (Monosodium glutamate). Off late a number of articles/discussions in health forums are strongly discouraging the use of this ingredient due its adverse effects on health. Try to keep this ingredient out of the recipe.

do you have a how-to video somewhere, or on your profile? i'd really love to watch it. to get a better understanding. thanks.

Hello. The added taste/flavor you are referring to could probably be due to added MSG ingredient to the dishes. It changes the taste of the dish but most people are beginning to avoid it due to health reasons.

I made this fried rice with shrimp instead of chicken, and it was not up to my expectations. I don't think it is because of changing chicken to shrimp, but the basic recipe does not include some items required for fried rice.
