Whilst browsing through my collection of recipes, I came across several fried rice recipes. Apart from this Nyonya Style Fried Rice, there are others like Fried Rice Ala Yang Chow, Fried Rice Ala Kampong, Fried Rice With Salted Eggs, Indian Fried Rice and Thai Pineapple Fried Rice. I think I will try them all and share the recipes with all of you.
I find this fried rice good, it is tasty, spicy and extra fragrant from the sesame oil. This is a quick to cook One Dish Meal for the family especially the young if they can take spicy food. BTW, it isn’t that spicy if you reduce the chilli paste used.
