Rice Burger

The first time I had this rice burger was at a small cafe/bakery in Tokyo, Japan during the summer holiday. I remembered that both my kids enjoyed it, so we went back for more the next day. The elderly lady at the cafe was kind enough to share the recipe, so I tried, tested, and finally got the result I wanted. This is a perfect umami rice burger! Since the NFL Super Bowl XLVIII is around the corner, why not to try make this Japanese style burger for a change from the traditional burger?

Fried Chicken In Pandanus Leaves

Pandanus, Pandan or Screwpine leaves are widely used in Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. These leaves have a nice scent and often used in both savory and sweet dishes. The leaves infuse the marinated chicken with their wonderful earthy scent after frying. Unwrap the leaves and indulge.

This sambal is typically served as an accompaniment to fried fish or chicken, omelette, fresh Asian herbs and vegetables.
