2 C uncooked long-grain rice
4-1/4 C water
Oil for frying

The day before serving, divide rice and water between 2 large heavy-bottomed frying pans.

Remove covers and continue to cook rice over very low heat until it sticks to the bottom of the pans and forms crust.

Scoop out loose center rice and use for another purpose.

Place pans over very low heat for 5 more minutes.

Leave uncovered pans out overnight for rice to dry.
