This is the simplest Nasi Tomato (tomato rice) I ever had. Served with Ayam Goreng Sos Tiram (oyester sauce fried chicken). Both recipes were created on the spot when this lazy feeling sitting quietly and nicely on my head, but all 4 stomachs need to be filled in short time. Luckly, Mat Rock agreed with me... hahahaha... The best part, everybody was enjoying it so much (never had time to lift up their head... hahaha...). Was it really delicious and yummy or were they starving????
Mat Rock's comments: Thumbs up! (pretending or what???? but he finished all the 'burnt' chicken :-D)
