1. Best way to do it, as the pros do, is to cook rice the day before and keep in fridge for use the next day.
2. Well, but we dont always have the luxury of such advance planning so here are some innovative ways to prepare the rice if you should decide to have fried rice impromptu!!
a. remove rice from rice cooker soon as it is cooked; transfer to a large plate to cool and air.
b. bring the rice with you into the air-conditioned room as you take a nap.
c. blow the rice with the fan on full blast!
