Rice is a staple part of many Asian diets and is thought to have originated in China. Its versatility makes it an ideal addition to any meal, whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner. And if you’re looking for a delicious way to spice up your rice, this recipe will do just that! Here are 8 steps on how to make rice fried with garlic ginger:

The oil should be hot enough to sizzle when you add the rice, but not smoking. If you’re using a wok, use a bit less oil than you would for regular stir-fry dishes because rice will soak up more of it than vegetables do (and we don’t want our fried rice to be swimming in grease).
Step 3: Add the garlic and ginger to the oil and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
