If you have been reading my blog for some time, I am sure you've noticed that besides being a yum cha fanatic, I also love my carbs, especially my rice and noodles...:). One rice dish, which is an absolute favourite of mine is fried rice, because it's versatile, it's simple to make and it tastes gorgeous! Fried rice is also the first dish that I tried making as a, let's say, 9 or 10 year old (apart from Indomie instant noodles...;)).
This time I added salted duck egg to my fried rice, including Szechuan chili oil and prawns. Try to imagine the taste...! This combo is absolutely brilliant, a real treat to your tastebud! The kimchi is optional, but it gives a good kick as well to your fried rice.

- 3 cloves garlic, minced
