Cutting down…

I guess everyone knows that I’ve been cutting down on my intake of sugar as well as carbohydrates. That is why my missus will not cook a lot of rice for our meals these days, just a bit for each one of us for lunch and dinner and because of that, we hardly have any leftover rice in the fridge.

I did use it to cook porridge once but I don’t recall using it to cook fried rice. That was why when I spotted a small tub of leftover rice in the fridge the other morning, I wasted no time at all in getting down to frying my kampung-style belacan ikan bilis and egg fried rice…

…more or less the same way like how I did it in April last year, 2020

…using basically the same ingredients…

…except that I decided not to add any shallots this time around.

The steps were more or less the same, minus the adding of the shallots part, just the chopped garlic – you can click the link to go and have a look at the whole process if you are interested and before I dished it all out of the wok, I threw in some chopped spring onions from my garden.

Yes, just so Uncle Roger would approve, I did sprinkle a bit of msg at the end and just like what I said that previous time – “I certainly would fry it again this way should there be anymore leftover rice in the fridge and no, I shall not be taking any more photographs while cooking and I shall make sure that I do not burn the shallot and the garlic again.”

I did not take any snapshots so I did not burn anything and it…

…turned out really nice, a lovely change from all that bread, all the crackers and the instant noodles that I have been having for my breakfast all these months.
