The Ukraine/Russian culture has some very earth comfort foods. As do most of the countries in the Balkan area. I love the black bread. It is probably the only bread I do like. Chinese rice almost killed me. I will never eat it again.

My gosh, what happened. Chineese rice is the only rice I really like. I do not eat rice otherwise, well sushi and rice pilaff, that's it.

The fried rice I had was soaking in grease. Anytime you eat fried foods, your gall bladder sends out bile to handle the grease. My gall bladder not only tried to send out a large amount of bile, it also picked up a gall stone that got lodged in the duct. Not a good thing. They didn't want to do surgery do to my age and my heart condition. So it was a wait and see. They waited too long. They had to do CPR on me. I will never eat Chinese food again. Almost all their foods are done in a wok with grease. Since then my two frying pans are in semi retirement. I use it for a grilled cheese sandwich, a can of hash, (no grease needed) and never anything that requires oil in the pan first. I eat my eggs scrambled now or boiled, maybe one half piece of bacon for a BLT. You get the idea.

Is that the only time you've had fried rice? It sounds like you got a really bad batch. I've never had fried rice that was swimming in oil. And the benefit of wok cooking is that it doesn't need a lot of fat for cooking. The shape of the pan and the high heat do the cooking.

Seems to me that grilled cheese has more grease than fried rice. It's not deep-fried, after all

No. I have been eating Chinese food since I was a kid. And rice is one of my favorite foods. The grilled cheese is done with a very small pat of butter for both sides. It is more toasted in the pan than sautéed. Believe me, I am so ever careful when I have any food that grease is part of the food. I still have to have my gall bladder removed. But they are waiting for the next attack. That was the first one I ever had. Not looking forward to the next one.
