An easy and popular dish of Peranakan origins, it is important in getting the rempah (spice mix) right. Our very simple recipe includes red chili, buah keluak, toasted belachan, which is quite simple. These days wet market sellers remove them from the shells, making them quite easy to prepare.
A thin egg pancake is made and cut into thin strips to go with the rice. We used Kinmemai Better Brown rice  for the fried rice, which has its outermost indigestible wax layer removed for easy digestion too. This makes for a really healthier & hearty dinner even if you have little time for cooking!
