What better place to be eating chilli crabs and black pepper crabs- at the comfort of one's home! No noisy crowds, No perspiring. Plus it's affordable (minus the cleaning and preparation). Mummy wanted to cook crab specially before we all started sch so ta da. ONE WEEK before semester starts, mother and daughter were down at work. Daughter on the fried rice and mother on the crabs :))
Introducing Tom Yum Fried Rice:
Wanted something towards the spicy side as well as tom yummy so I just mixed some Tom Yum paste into the fried rice and it works wonders :D When I think of fried rice, BANG! I immediately remember those days at Annenberg where I used to fry rice with tons of chilli ( sauce, chilli flakes) after being severely deprived from chilli from a land of only ketchup and fast food.. One thing I love about fried rice is that it's so simple to whip up cuz you just dump basically everything together and fry. and if it doesn't taste good, just add a helll lot of chill or blachan to make up for the taste :) Eggs good too.
Ingredients ( rice) :
Rice of course (overnight or 2 days old) It needs to be dry!
Garlic ( I put alottt)
prawn ( de-shelled)
soya sauce and sugar (to taste)
char siu ( or you can put ham and bacon, which is outrageously yummy as well)
peas and carrots
Tom Yum Pasta
Pork floss (to garnish)
1 egg ( to garnish)
1) Fry garlics and onions till little brown then add rice and fry till fragrant ( till you just could eat it plain and on its own). Set aside
2) Then fry prawn, char siu, peas and carrots till just cooked then add rice and fry fry fry again to get the nice reddish colour.
3)Add soya sauce , tom yum paste ( as much as you desire) to taste.
4)Add eggs and to incorporate evertthing together and there you go! A meal settled. Garnish with another fried egg cut into strips and pork floss :P:P:P
5) Pray that your guests will love it
