Salty Sardines & Sticky Rice ( Bla Tu Kem Tod )


Deliciously salty sardines, we often eat with sticky rice. We uncle grows chillies and when he's out on the farm, he'd take a ga-tip filled with sticky rice, together with fried onions and a salted fried fish to eat for lunch. It's a simple combination but sometimes the simplest tastes work best.
