The flavours and textures of this Crab Fried Rice is perfectly balanced. This IS the new standard for fried rice.

Prepare the Jasmine rice in a rice cooker a day before and cool.
The following day, prepare all the ingredients and keep them in separate bowls.
Heat up a skillet or wok to medium heat and add oil, coating the bottom of the pan.
Add eggs to the pan and gently scramble with a whisk. Reduce heat so eggs to prevent browning. Gently add the cooled jasmine rice while breaking up the lumps and cook till the rice grains are warm. Add the salt, sugar and the soy sauce and mix it thoroughly. Fold in the crab and scallions and cook until the crab is hot.
Plate on a serving platter and garnish with cucumber spears and cilantro leaves.
