What's your breakfast today? This Kampar Lor Mai Fan is different from what we have locally which only have fried peanuts and fried shallots at the sides. This Malaysian version one is more filling with addition Char Siew and Curry Sauce. I like the curry sauce drenching over the steamed glutinous rice as it helps to moisten the grains and won't feel too dry to eat :D
Side garnishing : Curry Sauce, Fried Peanuts, Homemade 'Char Siew' Roasted Pork Fillet, Spring Onion
More curry sauce please!!
