Step 2:     Heat a wok with 1 ½ tbsp. of sesame oil (you can replace this with the regular oil if you don’t have sesame oil). When hot add the rice and fry it by either tossing or with a spatula for 2 minutes on high heat (be very gentle if using a spatula so as not to break the rice). Then transfer to a bowl and keep aside.
