Check out this amazing meal which will have your mouth tingling like there is a party in it. Pickled pork belly fried rice with loads of Bird’s-eye chillies to keep your tongue and lips alight.

Hello and happy Sunday. I hope you’re well on this lovely day.

Last night I cooked a childhood favourite, viz., pig trotters with vinegar and ginger. In cooking that meal I included a piece of pork belly. You can get the full recipe and a story here.

Tonight I have the pickled pork belly with the leftover rice from last night and made a pickled pork belly fried rice.
