Sambal Fried Rice

Comfort food for spice lovers! This sambal fried rice takes no more than 15 minutes and is vegetarian friendly! For a vegan version, take out the egg and replace it with some deep fried tofu.

Remember to cook rice the day before and keep it in the fridge overnight. This dries out the rice, allowing it to absorb all the flavors without becoming soggy. ‘Cause trust us, no one likes mushy sambal rice.
