Fried Rice With Ikan Bilis (Nethili Karuvadu)

Fried Rice With Ikan Bilis (Nethili Karuvadu) also know as
Fried Rich With
Anchovy and Chicken Franks

I'm back with another favorite dish of mine. What the better way to keep oneself warm and happy during these freezing cold winter season? Hmm let's think!!-filled tummy with homely comforting food that we miss so much here.No doubt about that or argue with.Being a full-time mom of two kids-cooking has become a part of my life and passion ever- since I first landed in USA on 5 Oct 2007. Back in India most of the cooking were done by my MIL as I wasn't that interested in cooking. I normally as assist my MIL with simple job like chopping, peeling, grinding and tasting.We both have different ways of cooking and always clash with my style of preparation. My Mil is more to the village style traditional cooking whereas I like to play with my ingredients and come up with my own creation that sometime tends to turn in a big disastrous heheh!!Here I'm the Queen of the Kitchen-haha maybe I'm boasting a bit here-just bear with me okkk!!Adding anchovy or also known as Ikan Bilis to any dish makes it very delicious and mouth-watering. Having them with fried rice and pairing them with chicken hotdogs/chicken franks is simply out of the world. A quick preparation to satisfy one's hunger in minutes
Serving Size:4

2 cup leftover cooked rice
1 red onion chopped finely
2 chicken frank chopped
2tbsp anchovy soaked in hot water
4 small shallots, peeled
3 cloves garlic, peeled
1 cup mixed vegetable
chopped coriander leaves
chopped spring onions

For Sauce:
2tbsp dark soy sauce
2tbsp light soy sauce
3tbsp tomato ketchup
1tbsp spicy chilli paste
salt to taste

Preparation Methods:
Break the overnight/leftover rice using the back of a spoon so they don’t clump together-keep aside.Place garlic, shallots and salt in a mortar and pound with the pestle to form a paste.Heat the wok add couple spoons of oil,saute the chopped onions til browned followed by the pounded paste. Squeeze out the water from anchovy.Once the raw smell are removed add the diced chicken franks cubes,anchovy and the vegetables. As they become tender pour the sauce and allow the mixture to blend. Finally add the cooked rice and saute well. Adjust the level of salt and add chopped coriander and spring onions. Remove from flame and transfer to serving platter.
