Pretty good, though requires a tiny bit more cooking (for the cabbage & carrots) and serves a very big eater or 2 smaller ones (add 1 egg).

Ok, but nothing special. The only real flavour comes from the chilli sauce, otherwise healthy but pretty bland.

Made this a few nights ago. Very quick and easy, added fresh chilli to the rice. Really nice with the fried egg.
