METHOD

 

 

Pre cook the rice and if possible leave overnight, if not then allow to cool before frying. The best way to cook rice these days is with a proper rice cooker. Simply put the rice and water in the cooker and turn on the cooking button.

 

 

Once the rice is cooked and cooled you have to break it up so that it is not lumpy. Then set aside until needed.

 

Put the cooking oil in a fry pan and heat. Add the pork fat and fry until it starts to brown.

 

 

It is important NOT to burn the pork fat. Once it is nice and brown remove the browned fat from the oil and put aside in a bowl.

 

 

Now add the dried squid. Cook for about three minutes. It should be nice and stinky by the time it is done. The squid is the main reason that this dish is not to everyone's taste. Remove it and put it with the browned pork fat.

 

 

Next do the same thing with the dried fish. Again put it into the bowl with the squid and browned pork fat.

 

 

Now add the chilli and fry for a minute or so

 

 

Add the garlic and fry until fragrant

 

 

Add the onion

 

 

Add the pork meat and fry until it starts to brown slightly

 

 

Add the prawn

 

 

Add the sugar

 

 

Add fish sauce

 

 

Add soya sauce

 

 

Add the carrot and stir in well

 

 

Add MSG (optional)

 

 

Cover and cook for a couple of minutes

 

 

Now add the rice

 

 

Stir the rice in to the rest of the ingredients

 

 

Now add the squid, fish and pork fat

 

 

Stir well and add the pepper

 

 

As you eat you will come across the little flavour packages of dried squid.
