Turn off the heat and let it steam for 10 to 15 minutes with the lid on. Do not open the lid.
Use a fork to fluff the rice.
Transfer to a pan and let it cool to room temperature. Once it cools down, refrigerate the rice for next day use.

In a smoking hot wok, add

Add the the sliced green onion and
