Fried rice always sticks

Puffin3 | Jan 20, 201508:40 AM

I can not make a good simple fried rice to save my life!
I use cold day old Indian basmati rice which is perfectly fluffy.
I have an old (used to be) non-stick wok. But it steel anyway right. The woks in Chinese restros are steel.
I heat the wok till pretty hot. Add refined coconut oil about two Ts.
Add the rice and it immediately starts sticking. I try to scrap the sticking rice off the wok with a bamboo stirrer. Soon I have a mess of clumps of burnt/sticking rice.
I've watched all kinds of Youtube vids. There must be something I'm doing or not doing.
Any advice is gratefully appreciated.
