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.

    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.

    That’s a good idea about the pot lid. How do you dry out the rice though? I followed your instructions exactly.
