before you begin frying it.

oil to cover the bottom of the pan. You want all of the pieces of rice to
be coated by the oil as you add them to the pan. Otherwise they will
stick to the pan and not to each other. You want to completely fry the
rice until you have a nice brown color. Use a high heat and stir it

After the rice is fried to where you want it, you can lower the heat.
This is when you will want to add the other ingredients you have chosen
to include in the rice. It is going to take some experimenting to find
the right taste of fried rice that you like. Try to make small batches of
it from various recipes until you get it how you want it. The advantage
of making fried rice yourself is that you can add more garlic if you want
to and less egg if you aren’t too fond of it.

use it as a side dish for hundreds of different recipes. It is full of
various nutrients that will help you to feel good about your diet.. It is
also easy for the body to digest and small enough for younger children to
eat as well.
