The Quintessential Dish

There are days when I get lost in the supermarket - lost in a mind of my own thinking really really hard what to cook for my family! Oh believe me, I will look like as though I am staring longingly at a tray of diamonds when I'm actually "cooking up a storm" in my head, staring at the raw food. 
 
So on days when I am not motivated to drop by the supermarket, I will whip up a quick fried rice dish with quintessential ingredients that I store at home.  
- frozen mixed vegetables
- frozen cooked prawns
- waxed chinese sausages
- eggs
- dried shrimps
- onions
- chopped garlic
- belachan (fermented shrimp paste)
And there you go. A dish that takes me less than 30 minutes to prepare and fills my family's hungry tum-tum.
 
 
 
Till the next post, have a blessed week!

  1. Hi do you cook the rice the day before? If not how to make the rice not so soft for fried rice? Thanks

    1. Hi CE! I cooked the rice just 2 hours before I started frying my rice. At least to let it cool down. I guess the amount of water you use to cook the rice plays a part in ensuring the rice is not mushy. :) Put a little less water than you would usually cook the rice.
