Crispy Rice, ready at home, for use in sweets, savouries or soups! To make this, 90 per cent cooked rice is dried and deep-fried till crisp. Be mindful of the consistency of the rice while cooking, and make sure you stop before it gets mushy, otherwise it won’t be possible to dry and deep fry it. Also, make sure you fry the rice just before serving.

This rice goes very well with Chinese clear soups. I dump a lot of it in my soups and they provide a nice crunch.
