½ cup chopped onions
¼ cup golden raisins
1 Egg, beaten

Instructions

Use your fingers to crumble up the cold rice and break up any clumps.
Heat the oil in a large wok or skillet over medium-high heat.
Once hot, add the cashews, onions, and raisins. Let cook for 1 minute.
Add the beaten egg and cook for 1 minute while stirring to scramble the egg.
