Fried Rice with Shrimp Paste

This fried rice dish is called khao kluk kapi ( ข้าวคลุกกะปิ ). I must admit it is not among my most popular dishes. In fact, you don’t seem to see it around so much these days. The big difference between this dish and normal fried rice is that the rice is fried with shrimp paste which gives it a brown look (see picture above). It is also seasoned with sugar and fish sauce.
