I just made seasoned rice in the WP rice cooker. I used Uncle Ben's Rice and it came out the way I like it, firm and fluffy. I don't see why you can't do Asian fried rice in a rice cooker from scratch. Just add the previous mentioned spices, diced veggies and it should be good. I hate mushy rice and told my wife to not buy that packaged stuff (rice a roni) with all the sodium, I'll make my own. WP rice cooker is non stick and done in 15-20 mins.

Make your rice and put it in a bowl in the fridge, uncovered for a day. The fridge will suck the moisture out of the rice. When you make your fried rice, the rice will absorb the flavors of the bits of food and the soy sauce.

Thanks for all the tips! Seseme oil and ginger added some good flavor, but I'm not there yet. I will try fish sauce next time

This may sound crazy, but I watched the Hippy Gourmet do this and it actually worked for me too and my neice asks me to make fried rice every time she comes over - toss granulated sugar into the rice as you are frying it!

How much sugar?

It doesn't sound crazy actually... it would carmelize.. carmelization always tastes good...

Exactly - it gives a bit of a crispiness to the rice as the sugar melts. I never measure, I guess it's about a tablespoon or two depending on how much I am making. I stir fry the veggies first, toss in seasonings, then the rice, then the sugar. Don't over stir, that's another rule. Highest heat at all times - another rule of mine.
