Dont you have to pre-cook and freeze or dry the rice???? this is the hardest part of making great fried rice and it doesnt mention what to do?????

One more thing, buy quality rice. There is a difference when you use rice of unknown quality, it becomes mushy despite what you do with it.

You are better to ensure the rice is rinsed under water until the water runs clear prior to cooking. Then place the cooked rice uncovered in the fridge for a few hours or overnight before adding to the wok. This will help to stop it sticking.

It does say in the recipe cooked rice therefore you need to cook your rice in the normal way before adding to the dish

It's a bad recipe. It's dependent on pork and corn isn't a rogue ingredient but essential to giving the thing some texture.

This is great. The oyster sauce and shau hsing wine added a great flavour. I omitted the seasoning mix altogether and addded soy sauce. Kylie can fry with the best!
