Lao Crispy Fried Rice (Nam Kao) is crunchy, sweet, salty and sour. Traditionally, you wrap this fried rice in lettuce, vietnamese coriander, cilantro and mint transforming it to a salad dish, but I prefer just eating the fried rice by itself. I actually learned how to make this from my sister who learned it from her mother in law who is Lao. Hmong people would enjoy this dish because of the sour pork sausage. Try it because you won’t regret making this dish
