If you’re new to making fried rice, the first step is making sure to get the right rice. We suggest a long grain rice or a blend like Carolina® Long Grain and Jasmine Rice. This is because when cooked the long grain granules stay loose and separate instead of clumping together or getting mushy.
Next, make sure to use rice that has been completely cooled in the refrigerator. Better yet, day old rice. This is to avoid any extra liquid from the rice getting into the fried rice and making it mushy. If you’re pressed for time, drain the rice completely and let cool in the fridge while preparing the other ingredients and then toss in, but cook for a few minutes longer until all of the liquid is absorbed.
