Japanese Fried Rice (Veg, Non Veg)

I am sharing this recipe which i learnt from friend Kathy who's mother is from Japan.This is the authentic japanese fried rice recipe.
The recipe below is for 3-4 people.

Rice 2 cups (Great if you buy rice from japanese or oriental store)
1/2 cup finely chopped carrot.
1/2 cup peas
1/2 cupp finely chopped onions
1/2 cup thin sliced mushrooms
1 tbspn soy sauce
Some important tips before planning to make the fried rice:
1. You need to prepare rice as usual however need to keep it in freezer for 24-48 make it hard and then night before remove from freezer and keep it in refrigerator.The day you want to prepare keep it out 2-3 hrs before the preparation.
2. When i say finely chopped i mean really finely chopped.
In a big pan heat butter ( remember butter needs to be added generously as that brings the taste) and fry the thin slices of mushroom till they turn light brown. Remove it on paper towel and keep it aside.
Next add carrots in the same pan and fry till they are tender not too soft, add salt and chopped onions (remember to chk if there is enough butter in the pan while frying) and fry till it is soft.Add peas and fry very lightly by being careful trying not to squeeze the peas. Once that is done move these vegetable at the side of the pan.Add more butter and put the rice, wait till the rice absorbs the heat from the pan and becomes warm as it becomes easier to break it and mix it with butter, fry rice for 3-5 mins in butter. Then add soy sauce, and mix the vegetable with the rice ( best to use 2 spoons in both hands to mix it) including the fried mushrooms.Mix the rice and vegetables for 2-3 mins more.....and your japanese fried rice is ready.
Goes really well with shrimp or vegetable tempura (recipe which i will post next).
P.S. You can also add shrimp and chicken in fried rice but you need to cook it before adding it to pan.
Hope you enjoy this authentic fried rice friends and we surely did!!!!!!!
