Sticky African fried rice

Sticky African fried rice

On Canada Day, people not only remember the country's founding but also the variety of its cultural heritage. My mother started teaching me how to cook when I was a very small child, and it was a wonderful experience to learn the fundamentals of Burkina Faso cuisine. I now make an effort to prepare using recipes from other countries. Today I made fried rice, an Asian dish to which I naturally added my own twist .
