Kampung Fried Rice


Do I really have to speak about fried rice? I doubt. Fried rice is especially so popular in Malaysia. Each time we can't figure out what to cook for the day, easy-preasy fried rice it is. Also, I think when we are a beginner in our kitchen, fried rice can save us from a whole lot of embarrassment. This kampung fried rice obviously is screaming with our favorite Malaysian ingredients. Ikan bilis/anchovies is forever my best friend, of course to frill further this kampung fried rice, squid, onion and how can we Malaysians possibly enjoy a meal with spiciness? Okay. That's it for the day people. Enjoy this kampung fried rice please.
