Let’s get started!
Beat eggs well with pinch of salt and slice green onions. Set aside.
Heat a wok or a skillet over high heat; add 1 tbsp cooking oil and swirl to coat. Pour beaten eggs into the wok and scramble.
When the eggs are cooked 3/4 way, add remaining 2 tbsp cooking oil and cold jasmine rice.
A day old cold jasmine rice is my absolute favorite to make fried rice. It has beautiful aroma and fluffy texture that can hold the shape well while frying.
Breakdown rice and mix it with the eggs.
Add soy sauce around the edge of the wok, so it will burn slightly for the smoky umami flavor. Add salt to your taste and mix everything well. Reduce heat to low if you need to.
Turn off the heat, stir in green onions.
Garnish with sesame seeds if you’d like to!
Enjoy with any other dishes you decided to serve with!
