Updated photo in month of Sept 09 - dish ordered by customer

We love this spicy fried rice and it is my grandma's original recipe - Nyonya Fried Rice. A must to try, it is a simple recipe and yummy to taste. I have occasionally served this during small parties or office potluck parties and I found it is classified under "favourites" simply because the tray is first to be cleared....hahaha I cant help to say it is "Yum! Yum!"

The good blend of chilly, garlic and dried shrimps brings great aroma to the fried rice, together with chopped cabbage and eggs. Wow! Taste real good...and beautiful color too.."hitam manis"
