Today, I’ve decided to blog about a simple dish today: Laksa Fried Rice.

Of course, this dish is only simple if you use instant laksa mix. I’ve loved Prima Taste’s Laksa Fried Rice paste since I started cooking (and that’s more than ten years ago!), and as a poor university student then, all I could afford to contribute at reunion dinners was fried rice.
