My mother makes a fantastic fried rice and her secret is simple: use day-old steamed rice that has gone cold and firm in the fridge. She also adds a generous amount of lup cheong, a Chinese pork sausage as well as egg, peas and carrots. Give this classic fried rice a try!

2 - Gimbab

I make gimbab for lunch a lot and sometimes I just heat up some leftover rice to make it especially if I want to make myself a quick lunch. Gimbab is a Korean dish featuring rice wrapped in dried seaweed sheets, resembling Japanese futomaki sushi rolls but distinctly different. Unlike sushi, which uses vinegared rice, gimbab is seasoned with sesame oil and filled with cooked ingredients like seasoned, thinly sliced beef. If you love sushi, you'll definitely love gimbab!
