( Ham fried rice).
According to my father, his great grandfather didnít allowed any his guests eat fried rice at his house. Because back then, fried rice were made only from left over rice, and my ancestors believed that very disrespectful to serve left over rice to guests. Today, in *Kampuchea Krom* (South Vietnam) any meal with fried rice is considering fancy or gourmet, and fried rice also serves on special occasions such as wedding banquet. Most restaurants have varieties of fried rice on the menu.
This ham fried rice is delicious and very easy to make, a perfect dish for any occasions.
