I served with brown rice to complete the healthy meal, and enjoyed it whilst hot...then took it to work and enjoyed it cold! Alhamdulilah :)

Oh and the green stuff on top is just a few chopped parsley leaves to make it look fancy hehe, it actually doesn't taste any better with them there...just added them for the pic! :D
