  •  The trick to good fried rice (8+ / 0-)

    I learned from a dear friend long ago.

    Make the rice a day ahead. Refrigerate it. The low humidity removes moisture from the rice and you get a more authentic result without the rice popping from the moisture content.

    The nuts, I cannot help with. I have similar problems :-)

    Chaos. It's not just a theory.

      but makes complete sense in hindsight.

      I just love rice, but never really cooked with it outside of just eating it or using with other things to stuff something (like Bell Peppers).

      As I find whenever I try to figure out how to cook something new, after a few minutes online I was kind of stunned how simple it was to cook any number of fried rice dishes.

      I still don't buy tofu will work, but alas I will give it a try :). I am always open to any way to eat less meat.

      When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.

      Your procedure is fine, but rice contains spores of a noxious bacterium that are not killed by boiling.  NEVER eat rice the next day that has not been refrigerated, and do not eat even refrigerated, cooked rice after the third day.

      Warmest regards,
