Shrimp Fried Rice Recipe
(Chom Chien Tom)
This idea of stir-frying rice with other
ingredients originated in China and has made its way throughout Asia.
Generally, a serving of fried rice with all the trimmings makes a
filling meal. This version is very light and delicate. Note that using
cold rice works best for stir-frying because the grains separate easily.
