Belacan Fried Rice

God! I love belacan too much. Belacan is sincerely my love. My other half-half on the contrary, believe me, only started tasting belacan cooked dishes (Kangkung Belacan & Belacan Fish Sambal). after he fell in love with me. Additionally, even Malay food is a new discovery to him. Thanks to me, a pat on my shoulders, for introducing belacan and Malay dishes to him. I still have a long way to go for introducing other typical authentic Malay dishes, of course cooked with belacan (Nyonya Fish Sambal & Sambal Udang) and Chinese dishes as well (Penang Hokkien Mee), trust me, I am not trying to change his food lingo, but no harm done right? After all, when we consider ourselves as adventurous foodies, we must try different types of food? This Belacan Fried Rice, unbelievably gave him the food pleasure (Kampung Fried Rice). Power roaring and dynamic fried rice. Leftover cooked rice, fried-up with chillies, belacan, eggs, fresh prawns and kangkung. Enjoy. I love you too.
