Note When Making Egg Fried Rice

  • It is recommended to use rice cooked from dry rice, so that the rice grains do not clump or stick together.
  • In addition to eggs for rice, if you like, you can fry more eggs to eat with rice. Absolutely do not put too many eggs in fried rice because you like it, causing the rice to become mushy due to many eggs, losing its taste.
  • If you like crispy fried rice, spread the rice evenly in the pan, set the heat to the lowest setting, and cover the pot. Occasionally you open the lid, stir the rice. Do this for about 30 minutes, the fried rice will be crispy and evenly.
