COOKING NOTES FOR EGG FRIED RICE

USING DAY-OLD RICE

Fried rice is usually a dish that you make to lớn repurpose the leftover cooked rice from the day before. You want to lớn avoid freshly cooked rice because it is still moist & steamy, which may yield fried rice with a mushy texture. (Notice in the photo below how you can see the individual grains of rice instead of a mushy mass of rice.) However, if you forget about cooking rice the day before, here is a little trick that I use.

Spread a layer of freshly cooked rice onto large baking sheets & let the rice air out for 1 khổng lồ 2 hours—the longer the better. The grains of rice will dry out during this process.

USING PACKAGED RICE

For this recipe, I experimented with using packaged pre-cooked rice, which is what you see in the photos. These packages usually contain 2 cups of cooked rice, so you’ll need 2 packages for the recipe. The packaged rice is fine, especially if you are too busy during the week to cook rice. However, it is definitely more expensive than buying rice and cooking it yourself (I sound lượt thích a mother here). I also found a slight smell when I opened the packages (probably from whatever preservatives the manufacturer used), though not enough khổng lồ make me throw the rice straight to the trash. Ultimately, I recommend cooking the rice yourself, but hey, I understand if you don’t have time for that.
