Welcome to carb central. This is your next stop in food heaven.
We’re talking rice.
We’re talking noodles.
We’re talking a saucy chicken gravy.
We’re talking a drizzle of mayo sauce.
All layered together.
Every bite is a burst of flavour and texture.
Hate it, or love it?
I think love it for sure.
What is the Origin?
So let’s talk about the origin of this recipe. It’s not from Singapore, in fact it has nothing to with Singapore at all. This delicious recipe originated in Karachi, Pakistan and was popularized as an exotic dish in weddings. Don’t you just love how fusion recipes are the best ever? I also love recipes that have a unique origin.
This is a really good recipe to serve at dinner parties, as it’s a complete meal in itself. Also, it’s pretty impressive to look at, and your guests will be talking about it for a long time. Just add delicious appetizers and a yummy dessert, and you’re good to go! 😉

Can You Make Singaporean Rice in Advance?
Yes, you can make all the elements of the recipe one day in advance, and then heat everything separately. Layer right before serving.
I use sriracha sauce, but any chilli sauce or chilli garlic sauce is good too.
While rice is a delicious addition to Singaporean rice, and certainly an important element, you can certainly skip this step. It won’t be quite the same as the original recipe, but still delicious nonetheless.
