Then add 2 tablespoons of Oyster sauce, for flavor and makes it shine. And half teaspoon of chili sauce, this is optional or at your taste, mix it all together.
After 3 minutes let’s add the rice and in the same time add the squid and prawn with their sauce, the sauce going to add juicy and seafood flavor, mix it all well and cook it for 2 minutes more. Keep mixing and add a bit of black pepper and salt at your taste and lemon juice
