Notes

Special equipment: a 5.3-quart air fryer.

Step 1

Combine the rice, vegetable oil, 1 teaspoon of the sesame oil and 1 tablespoon water in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat the rice. Transfer to a 7-inch round air fryer insert, metal cake pan or foil pan.

Step 2

Put the pan in a 5.3-quart air fryer and cook at 350ºF, stirring halfway through, until the rice is lightly toasted and crunchy, about 12 minutes.

Step 3

Meanwhile, stir together the sriracha, soy sauce, sesame seeds and remaining 1 teaspoon sesame oil in a small bowl.

Step 4

Open the air fryer and pour the egg over the rice. Close and cook until the egg is cooked through, about 4 minutes. Open again, add the peas and carrots and stir into the rice to distribute and break up the egg. Close and cook 2 minutes more to heat the peas and carrots.

Step 5

Spoon the fried rice into bowls, drizzle with some of the sauce and sprinkle with more sesame seeds.
