One cup of cooked rice is not enough to serve four. I'd increase it to 3 or 4 cups if I'm serving four diners. Also, I'd reduce the dark sauce to 1 tsp and instead add 1 tsp of veggie or chicken stock powder while frying the rice - to keep things dry (less soggy) and more aromatic. Otherwise, a very tasty dish!
