Make sure that your frying pan is hot enough before you start to cook. Fried rice requires a medium-high heat which should also be well distributed.

  1.  Prepare rice long before cooking

This helps to give rice firm texture on the surface preventing rice from becoming softy, gummy and sticky

Push the cooking stick down at 45° until you get to the bottom of the pan
