This fried rice is commonly cooked in many houses in Malaysia, the word 'kampung' means village , so one can guess that it is a recipe that hails from the village area. The ingredients used are the ones that are easily available to the villagers. Some of the vegetables used are the one they grow themselves . Fried anchovies and kangkung/water spinach are commonly used for the recipe. But the recipe has evolved in time that many houses has started to prepare with varied ingredients. I have added seafood to my recipe!
