    Basmati rice definitely.  But jasmine rice would depend on how you like your fried rice. Jasmine rice will cook up kind of sticky, so if you like your fried rice a little sticky, then you're good to go. But if not, you want to use some of other types of long grain rice.

    When I make fried rice I use yellow rice which is saffron. I buy Vigo brand.
