One of my mother's signature dishes is 炒饭 (that is, fried rice). It is full of ingredients and each scoop of rice contains more ingredients than rice.

In addition to generous amounts of ingredients, some other little secrets to a delicious plate of fried rice are as follows:-
(a) fry the rice with good quality black sauce; and
(b) add chopped "chai por" (that is, preserved radish).

For today's fried rice dinner, my mother added eggs, mixed greens, chai por (preserved radish), luncheon meat and back bacon to the rice.

Even Boy-Boy was tempted and he waited patiently for dinner to be served.

More little secrets to a mouth-watering plate of fried rice.... garnishing and side ingredients! In the photograph below, the fried rice was garnished with baked peanuts, fried anchovies and fried shallots. Boiled sausages were also added as a side ingredient.

A concoction of vodka (Absolut Mandarin) with pink guava ends the meal on a sweet note.

To add more zing to the fried rice, sprinkle the fried rice with fried dried dry prawns that have been spiced with chilli and if you happen to have the Muar otar, throw them in as well and voila you have your mouth watering chow fun!!
