Fried rice was the very first dish I learnt so it is only fitting to give a kitchen novice and a fried rice lover his first lesson on how to make the perfect fried rice. I am proud to say he now makes very good fried rice after a few trials and errors on his own.
I won't go on about the technical side of fried rice making but just to show you the result of our first cooking lesson.
