Let’s face it, now that school has started for our chikitings, life is busier thatn EVEEERrrrrr. diba? It’s amazing how we can stick to our busy schedule — working at home, household chores, helping the kids answer their modules, prepare breakfast,lunch, and dinner — and most of all still have some ME time left to watch our favorite korean novelas. I am watching Mystic Pop-Up Bar, btw.
One of the secrets is by preparing easy-to-cook meals during my busiest days to be able to manage my time properly and squeeze in everything I need to do in a day. This Chao Fan with Fried Siomai is one of the easiest dish to cook and it’s flavorful as well.
My kids love love love fried rice and crispy fried siomai so I know it’s something they would like. What I like about this dish is that I can put tiny pieces of vegetables to keep it nutritious. I added kangkong, carrots, and spring onion.
As for the siomai, you can use your homemade siomai or your favorite store-bought siomai.
