Here is a very simple but stunning Asian fusion dish everyone can make.
It is neither irritating nor unpleasant, but sure gives the food an other dimension.
Get the best, not the stuff with seeds in, smell if you can to see if it is fresh.
So, what do you need?
350 gram Moksi Meti bacon from a Orient supermarket.
3 husks of Flower Pepper red
1 Clove of garlic
250 gram leek
250 Gram carrot
250 gram green beans
2 good no brilliant chillies, Naga Jolokia Purple or one with herbs taste in it. They should not be too hot.
5 fresh leaves of Sesame Leaf (Perilla frutescens) or 10 pickled Sesam Leaf Ssam
2 tablespoons of Soy Sauce
a dash of rice wine vinegar or white wine vinegar
1 cup of good broth
3 cups of rice
Cut green beans leek and carrot fairly fine, crush and slice the garlic
Add the beans and the carrot when the bacon is starting to lose a bit of the fat. Add the garlic crushed and sliced. Put a lid on the wok for 5 minutes.
After 5 minutes add the leek and the cup of broth to have it steam for a bit. The rice should be almost done now, and you need it when it is slightly under done.
When the rice is almost ready, add the tomato's and the cut sesame leaf.
Then add the rice, to soak up the moisture in frying pan.
Serve with a good sriracha sauce or Sambal.
