Step 4 - Stir-fry rice and spring onions

  • To the same pan, toss in cooked rice and stir-fry for at least another 8 minutes.
    It is best to use leftover rice from the night before. As refrigerated rice loses its moisture content, your fried rice won’t be too mushy and wet, resulting in better texture
