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, such as our aromatic Success® Jasmine Rice. Long grain rice gives the best results as the grains remain fluffy and separate when cooked. This allows them to heat evenly and absorb flavor when you cook the fried rice. If you have long grain Success® White Rice, it can be substituted here, as well. Make this dish 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. Either prepare your rice the day before for this dish or, use leftover rice from yesterday’s meal. Still, if you just don’t have the time to wait or you’re craving this dish immediately, simply lay your cooked rice out on baking tray to cool while you gather your other ingredients. The results will still be delicious!
