I first had this as a child in Singapore usually made by our armour, since then this recipe has evolved over a period of time and is a family favourite loved by young and old. A very adaptable Rice based dish, is ideal to cook especially after a sunday roast pork. All leftover vegetables work really well mixed with the rice.
- 8 ounces basmati rice (or similar - washed)
- 2 eggs (for omelette)
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 knob of butter
- pork (cooked and cut into cubes)
- roughly chopped onion
- chopped garlic
- bacon (cut into small pieces)
- tinned sweetcorn
- red bell pepper (or other colour peppers - cut into strips)
- mushrooms (optional)
- soy sauce
- any vegetables (leftovers - cut into small pieces)
