“When cooking a stir-fry, start by putting the rice on to boil and cook according to the packet instructions. By the time the rice is cooked, the stir-fry should be ready.
“The key to a successful stir-fry is preparing all the ingredients before you start cooking, so everything can be cooked together quite quickly.
