A wholesome fried rice dish can be made in no time with some leftover rice. So here is just that with sliced bell peppers, spring onion, few prawns and sausages thrown in. I added 2 tbsp. of the spicy chili sambal for an extra added flavour. You can relish on its own or with a fried egg as an accompaniment.

Chili Sambal -
- 15-20 dry red chilies, soaked for an hour
- 2-3 garlic cloves
- 1 lemon grass, sliced
- 8-10 shallots
- salt to taste
- 1/4 cup vinegar
- 1 tbsp. sugar
- 2-3 tbsp. oil
- 2 tbsp. dried anchovies, cleaned, drained & pat dry
Heat oil in a pan and fry the anchovies till crisp. Drain on a kitchen towel. When cool, grind along with chilies, garlic, lemon grass, shallots, salt, vinegar and sugar to a smooth paste.
Heat the same oil in which the anchovies were fried. Saute the prepared paste on a low flame till it turns slightly dark brown in colour and the oil starts to separate from the sides of the pan. Serve along with fried rice.
