This recipe has been customized to our preferred taste and mix. You may use shrimps, beef or other veggies for your streamed rice. It is recommended to use left over rice ("bahaw") stored in your fridge. For better taste, cook your rice with chicken stock, beef stock or pork stock instead of the usual water. Once cooked, store the rice in the fridge for at least 6 hours then fry. You may also use worcestershire sauce and chinese wine instead of cornstarch to thicken the sauce.
