Boil the rice for 25 mins or until tender, drain, cool quickly under cold water, then drain again. Toast the sesame seeds in a dry wok until golden, then tip onto a plate and set aside. Heat the wok until really hot, then add the oil and ginger and stir-fry for 30 secs. Add the carrots, hoisin sauce and half a cup of water, then cover and cook over a high heat for 4 mins.
