I’ve never been very successful when it comes to making fried rice, so I set out to do some google research. They said the technique to prevent soggy fried rice is to use cold day-old rice straight from the fridge to the pan. I’ve decided to make pineapple fried rice instead of straight up plain fried rice today and we are pretty happy with the result. I even carved a bowl out of half a pineapple for serving, fun!
