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.

    This gave me a very hard time to fry. Oil splattered all over the place including on me. I still have burns on my arms because of it. Is it normal for the rice to cause the oil to splatter? And what is the best way to prevent this? For the ones I managed to pull out of the oil they were delicious but I couldn’t finish doing the rest because of how painful it was getting. Any tips?
