2. Using the same pan or a separate wok, If you prefer, heat a tablespoon of oil over moderate heat and add the minced garlic. Fry the garlic, stirring constantly to prevent it from burning. When the garlic is crispy and golden, remove it from the pan (leaving the garlic oil in the pan) and set aside,

5. Serve the rice garnished with egg strips, scallions, and a little fried garlic. Place the remaining garlic in a bowl on the side so individuals can add more if they like.
