Puff Fried Rice
Since Coronavirus hit, we have a lot of rice in our pantry but got bored cooking it the same way every time. I played around with frying it a number of different ways and this was my favorite, fried and puffed. It is such a fun way to enjoy rice!
Pot with Lid
- 2 cups oil for frying
- ½ cup rice
- salt to taste
Heat a small pot of oil to 350 degrees. Use a thermometer if you have one to see when the oil reaches that temp.
Place the extra pot and strainer close by with the strainer sitting in the pot.
Drop a piece of rice to see if it "puffs" when you drop it in. Similar to how you would test a piece of popcorn kernel if you were making popcorn on the stove.
Carefully pour the rice into the hot oil. Count 5-10 seconds and the rice should be puffed and ready!
Pour oil and rice through the strainer.
Rice will be very hot! Be careful. Salt rice to taste.
