Quick Breakfast

A slight departure from my normal photos and restaurants. This morning had a lovely breakfast of steamed brown rice with an egg cracked over it. So far, so mundane. What made it special is that I was inspired to make a little sauce of chili garlic sauce mixed with kaya and sesame oil. Kaya is a Malaysian coconut "jam" that's basically sugar and coconut milk cooked down till it make a thick paste. Think "coconut dulce de leche" if it helps.

Anyway, spicy, garlicky, sweet, coconutty and just a bit of aromatic sesame. Yum!
