I cook the rice, then spoon it into a plate, fluff it up and let it cool.
Chop all the veggies/meat in a similar shape. I prefer matchsticks for capsicum, carrot etc; then have slivers of chinese cabbage, red onion. I also love fresh garlic and ginger in my fried rice.
Heat some oil in a wok, then fry the rice quickly for a few minutes. Take off the heat. Heat some sesame oil in the wok, sear your meat and put aside. Repeat for your veggies.
Return the meat and veggies to the wok; add some soy sauce (I also add some chilli flakes), stir quickly then add the rice; then take off the heat. Stir through until just combined..and you can add some chopped mint/coriander. I love fried rice served with wedges of lime and garnished with fried shallots..yum!
