It is a recipe that has as a basic ingredient the rice that can be enriched with numerous ingredients according to their tastes. The main phase is to brown the cooked rice in sesame oil, or seeds, boiling.

This will ensure that, thanks to the temperature change, the rice remains well-grained, rather crunchy and therefore particularly tasty. You must prefer a long bean rice like basmati type, but you can simply use white rice from other preparations. You can also customize the recipe using other types of vegetables such as peas, mushrooms and broccoli florets and enrich it with meat, minced or cut into small pieces, of chicken, veal or beef, or with diced ham or with shrimps.
