Suhara Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Serves: 2 

  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 100 gms dried small anchovies
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 shallots, sliced thinly
  • 1 tablespoon black bean chilli paste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1 egg, fried

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Heat oil in saucepan and saute the dried anchovies until it is slightly crispy. Throw in the garlic and shallots and stir for a few minutes. Add the black bean chilli paste and stir until fragrant.
  2. Crumble the leftover cooked rice so it's not too lumpy. Add a little rice at a time to the saucepan, stirring and incorporating all the ingredients together.
  3. Serve the rice hot and top with fried egg.


Instead of topping it with fried egg you can add beaten egg into the sauce , scrambling it before stirring in the rice.
