There are two camps when it comes to fried rice: those who believe freshly steamed rice is a no-go, and those who think freshly made warm rice is the only way to go! We think we can use either leftover or freshly made rice - whatever is easiest for you. Just make sure to coat as many single grains of rice with the egg yolk at the beginning and to break up any lumps as you go along.
Also, make sure your wok/skillet is really hot before you start stir frying and have all your chopped ingredients ready to go.
