“This is a fried rice recipe I came up with over time. I usually cook from scratch, just adding as I go along. But I've tried to approximate the ingredients for this the best I could. The rice is best when cooked the day or hours before and kept refrigerated for at least a few hours. I've seperated everything out in easy steps, but as you're comfortable & able to multi task feel free to chop & cook multiple things at once! Hope you enjoy!”
