You can make any type you want but the salient facts remain the same.
You need day old white long grain rice. The best results come from using long grain and jasmine rice. The jasmine enhances the flavor and aroma of the cooked rice. Use oyster sauce for most of the salt. Use a good portion of Chinese cooking wine for aroma and flavor. Use tofu to add more protein.I prefer extra firm tofu for frying cut into small pieces. Ginger, garlic, bean sprouts, finely shredded cabbage like Napa, shallots, scallion, carrots, peas, chicken or pork or shrimp or a mixture of one or more of these, Marin and sugar for sweetness, white pepper. Some chefs use turmeric to add color, but there is plenty of things that have color. Each of these must be quickly stir fried in a hot wok, the set aside to be added once everything is added. All ingredients must be ready to be used. The rice needs to be separated from big chunks into free kernels. The best tool is slightly wet hands. Whip the eggs. Add liquid ingredients to a bowl. Fish sauce and sesame oil (hot) are often used for extra flavor. To the oyster sauce, add rice wine so it’s not forgotten, Marin, Fisk sauce, sesame oil. It’s okay to add the sugar to the liquid!

If using a combination of these, cook them separately, so each cooks at their own rate which will be different!
