How to make fried rice

The method for cooking fried rice is super easy: We start with regular cooked rice that you prepare according to package directions, or leftover rice from another meal.

To make the fried rice: Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large frying pan. Add the onion and sauté until translucent and fragrant, 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Stir in cooked rice and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly toasted, about 5 – 7 minutes.

Add tomato sauce and continue to sauté the rice, stirring regularly. Sprinkle with cilantro before serving.

Tips for cooking fried rice

  • Your cooked rice shouldn’t be too mushy, otherwise, it will stick to the pan.
  • Go easy on tomato sauce at first. Let the rice soak up the liquid before adding more. You want slightly toasted rice and not a soggy mess.
