Memories of Fried Rice

Ask any Asian friend of yours and most likely mum has made fried rice out of leftover rice at some point in their childhood.  With most Asian families running their rice-cooker everyday, it’s no wonder fried rice always makes it to the dinner table.

I don’t usually make typical Chinese dinners so this was a nice treat for me as well.  Armed with leftover rice, some fresh chicken and some veges, it was SO SIMPO <apply Russell Peters accent here>.

Difficulty rating: 2 out of 5
