How to make the best fried rice

We’ve got a couple tips for you to make the best fried rice dish yet!

First, make sure to use long grain rice, we suggest using our aromatic Success® Jasmine Rice for best results as the grains cook up fluffy and separate so the grains heat evenly and absorb all of the flavor! If you have long grain Success® White Rice, it can be substituted in as well. Make it work for you, while still using quality ingredients.

Second, this dish works best using cooked and chilled rice so that no excess moisture makes its way into the dish. Hint: this is a great opportunity to use that leftover rice from yesterday’s Curry Dinner served of Jasmine Rice. However, if you don’t have the time to wait or you’re craving these flavors now, simply lay the cooked rice out on baking tray while you gather your stir fry ingredients.
