This is my vegetarian interpretation of a delicious rice dish created by one of my Malaysian cooks. As with the earlier rice dishes, the rice needs to be cooked in advance or even the night before. I find this dish reheats well in the microwave for convenience, but it is just as good served cold as a rice salad.
P Can be prepared ahead: cover the rice and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. To reheat the finished dish, complete up to the end of stage 4, cool, cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Reheat in a wok for 5-10 Minutes, then complete the recipe.
