I just make it in my normal frying pan. I'm sure that's technically not right, but it still tastes pretty darn good!

I use a deep wide frying pan to make our fried rice, works well.  We have a wok, but I never use it.

Frypan is fine.

I didn't have a wok till 1990.. had been eating fried rice since 1973!

Deepish normal frying pan is fine.

I find it works better with rice cooked the day before and kept in the fridge overnight. However, apparently cold rice is full of toxins or something. Maybe I am immune to them, but you may not wish to take that chance.

Use plenty of soy sauce, and bean sprouts.

I just use an electric fry pan, works for me, plus it is a large one so I can make enough for dinner for 5 and a couple of lunches for the next day.

. We cook it in the microwave, covered by about an inch or so of water, for about 14 mins.
Cover the bowl with glad wrap after removing from microwave, for about 10 mins.
Oh, and we also only use Basmati rice as well.

Seriously, is that all I have to do to cook rice?

If you want quick fried rice, use those packets of pre-cooked rice that can be reheated in the microwave. Coles have their own brand and they make perfect fried rice every time. Just tear the pack open and add to the frypan or wok with your other ingredients.

For authentic tasting fried rice, add a pinch of Chinese Five Spice, and don't forget the omelette........I push the rice to the side of the pan, break the eggs into the space left, add a splash of sesame oil, mix and allow to cook, then break up and mix back into the rice.

Serve the soy sauce separately, I don't ever mix it into the pan of rice because not everyone likes it and it's definitely a "to taste" addition.
