Notes

The main key to making fried rice is using rice that has been previously cooked. Older rice is dryer, reducing your chances of ending up with a dish that is wet and gloppy. Day old rice is fine, but rice that is 2 or 3 days old is best. Rub the rice between your fingers to get rid of any clumps before cooking.
Basmati rice comes out fluffier and is less sticky than other types of rice, is perfect for fried rice dishes.
