    Daydream's Note:

    Spicy and flavorful, this easy dish provides a delicious change from Nasi Goreng or Chinese Fried Rice. Try to use Vietnamese fish sauce (Nuoc Mam), which is more pungent than other Southeast Asian fish sauces. Preparation time does not include the time needed to dry the rice overnight.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Allow the rice to completely dry out before beginning this dish.
    2. 2
      The easiest way to do this is to spread the rice evenly in a shallow dish, or on a tray, and leave uncovered in the refrigerator overnight.
    3. 3
      The next day, place the shrimp in a heatproof bowl, cover with boiling water and allow to stand 30 minutes, or until soft, before draining.
    4. 4
      In a large wok, heat the groundnut oil and stir-fry the onion, garlic, peanuts, lemon grass and turmeric, until fragrant.
    5. 5
      Add the rice, shrimp and all the remaining ingredients and stir-fry until piping hot.
    6. 6
      Serve immediately.

      This was the best fried rice I have ever cooked; I omitted the shrimp as i didnt have them, and subbed lemon peel for the lemongrass.This will be a staple dish in our house from now on. Thank you Daydream for posting this.
