People think if your fried rice doesn’t taste like takeout, then you haven’t done your job. So I decided to make the kind of fried rice that goes beyond your local Chinese fare and into a jurisdiction all its own. Thai accents are what this is all about. I’m talking mango. Mango hanging out with ginger and making out with lime. It’s kind of ménage à trois-ish, and makes you feel like you’ve been missing out on something all your life. But when it comes to this fried rice, this is a good thing.

  4. Add the mango and rice. Stir to incorporate.
