【Fried Rice Patties】
Fried rice patties are among the most popular breakfast foods in southern China. I used to buy them from street vendors when I was little. I made these rice patties for breakfast this morning. My hubby commented that they tasted just like the ones in his childhood memory.

Sweet rice patties:
It splattered as it cooked not as I was putting them in the oil. Mittens didn’t help as I got splattered on my neck and arms.
Maybe your rice is too wet. Please be very careful when you are frying food, make sure no excess water. You can also use a big lid in front of the pot to protect yourself.
That’s a good idea about the pot lid. How do you dry out the rice though? I followed your instructions exactly.
leave on the counter for 1-2 hours.
