The Hotdog and Fish Leftover Chao Fan

A fried fish, fried hot dog, fried rice and some old rice. I think this would fit me and my son for lunch. Wait, I bet it is me only. My son prefer eating with his tita and lola than with me. Near lunch time is still play time. He is going to eating with them while playing.

Yet another randomly prepared recipe without any specific measurement and cooking time frame.

I removed the fish head and bones, then shredded it to pieces. I made sure there was no bones left. Cut the half hotdog thinly. Chopped one medium onion. Dropped all prepared ingredients to old rice and fried rice. Added a little soy sauce. Then stirred it continuously over low heat for few minutes.

The chao fan for me and only for me was ready. I never added any cooking oil. The previously fried rice oil was enough to prevent the mix from sticking to pan.

As I expected, my son already ate sontanghon soup with his tita.


The Fried Jackfruit Seed

It crossed my mind suddenly. If jackfruit seed can be eaten boiled, then maybe, it could also be eaten broiled and fried.

I only tried the fried version due to limited seed availability.

Here are the steps…

1) Gather jackfruit seeds.

3) Jackfruit seed is a dicot. Separate the smaller and bigger part. Cut the larger to smaller pieces to facilitate faster cooking time. Leave the smaller part as is.

Trust me! It is an excellent snack. Looks like a shorter version of potato fries. The outside and inner texture is similar to cassava fries.
