nasi goreng fried rice

This is an old recipe from Indonesia…Nasi Goreng Means “Fried Rice”

Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 1 shallot
  • 1 garlic
  • 1 red chili (seeded)
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted belacan (terasi)
  • 1/2 teaspoon palm sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon kecap manis
  • 8 oz. overnight rice
  • 1 fried egg (well done)
  • 2 tablespoons oil
Preparation:

Break the overnight/leftover rice using the back of a spoon so they don’t clump together. In a wok, toast the belacan on low heat until it becomes dry and aromatic. Toasted belacan should be somewhat powdery and appear like tiny granules. Fry an egg (well-done) and set aside.

Using a mortar and pestle or a mini food processor, blend the shallot, garlic, red chili, and toasted belacan. Transfer the blended flavoring paste into a small saucer.

Heat up a wok and add oil. Add the flavoring paste and stir-fry until aromatic or when the oil separates. Add the rice into the wok and stir well with the flavoring paste. Add kecap manis and palm sugar into the rice and continue to stir-fry and make sure that they are well blended with the rice. Dish out, top the nasi goreng with the fried egg and serve immediately.
