    How to make Dried Squid Fried Rice:

    • Fry the dried squid until crispy. Drain the excess oil by placing it on paper towel.
    • Then cut into thin strips or just shred it to pieces.
    • Reduce the oil to just about a tablespoon in the pan where you fried the dried pusit.
    • Then sauté the garlic until fragrant and golden brown.
    • Add in the rice then stir fry and let all the ingredients mix together thoroughly.
    • If the rice is too dry, don't be afraid to add a little water or chicken stock.
    • This will make the rice softer and more enjoyable to eat.
    • Then toss in the scrambled eggs into the fried rice.
    • Stir fry again to mix the beaten eggs with the rice.
    • Then last but not the least, season with a dash of salt and pepper and drizzle with vinegar.
