There is a very specific way of cooking rice for Chinese recipes, so that you get well-cooked yet separate grains, which can then be added to recipes like Schezuan Fried Rice , 5 Spice Mushroom Rice , and even certain Stir-fries and Soups .

You will be able to draw a parallel between the way rice and noodles are cooked in Chinese cuisine, as both require cooking with oil and refreshing with cold water to avoid mushiness.
