Fried Rice with Pineapple and Chicken Meatball

An easy to prepare hot meal for the family. Yes, this is Fried Rice with an extra "hot flavor".
Can you see the little green, these little green thing gives the fried rice a punch!

I have added on cubes of fresh pineapples or you may use canned ones (a little sweet as it has been soaked in syrup), chicken meatballs and some chopped french beans.

Nasi Lemak Chicken Curry

A delicious one set meal that can be easily prepared and served at home. Eating at home means eating healthy as we can control the level of oil used to prepare those dishes and definitely NO MSG.. for sure.

Nasi Lemak is a typical Malaysian dish and Malaysians eat it all the time. It can be served as a set meal for breakfast, lunch or dinner
. It is rice cooked in coconut milk with screwpine leaves or pandan leaves - which produces a beautiful aroma.

I normally served Nasi Lemak with varieties of dishes like chicken curry, chilly prawns, rendang chicken, fried fish with sambal (pounded chilly with prawn paste and lime). The sidelines are fried peanuts, fried anchovis, fried egg, hard boiled egg or even pickled salad which consist of onion rings, cucumber and pineapple.

Have fun!
