Fried Rice with Salted Fish and Fried Anchovies

Sunday, September 6, 2009

I tried another version of fried rice today - fried rice with salted fish and fried anchovies. Both of the ingredients which were famous back in my hometown. Salted fish aka ikan masin and anchovies aka ikan bilis were preserved with salt and dried. The taste of them are often very pungent and once you were frying them in the kitchen, it will bound to have unwanted visitors visiting your kitchen - flies. So remember guys to cover up your food once you cooked them. You definitely won't want them to savour on your food before you do.


2 cups cooked rice
2 tbsp garlic, minced
1/3 cup peas
1/3 cup corns
1 Chinese sausage, sliced
6 prawns, deveined
