- Prepare rice in a rice cooker add 3 vegetable stock cubes.
- Preheat the oil in a pan on medium to high heat, throw in the onions, and fry for a minute or two; add the scallions, mixed vegetables, thyme, curry powder, salt, and remaining stock cube.
- Throw in the rice — Stir-fry for about 3 to 5 minutes on high heat.
- Take it off the heat and serve.
The white rice should be cooked tender but still firm to bite (like you cook your pasta al-dente). Overcooking the rice will result in mushy fried rice.
Fried rice is best enjoyed when the Veggies remain crunchy, so don’t overcook your veggies.
You need to increase the heat and stir continuously to get that nice coveted crisp during frying.
