Chef's Tips:

  • For best results, use day-old rice. Freshly cooked rice is more moist which causes the rice to clump together. This dish is often a big hit with kids and good for simple lunches at home.
  • To reduce the amount of oil used, use a non-stick pan. Substitute some of the cooking oil with sesame oil for a subtle sesame flavour.
