Nasi Goreng

Nasi Goreng
Nasi Goreng is the Indonesian version of fried rice, it is one of the most popular all in one meal in Indonesia and other neighbouring places, Singapore and Malaysia who got their own version of this all in one meal fried rice. A day old rice is stir fried with sambal belacan made up of powdered and toasted dried krill and hot red chili paste. An Indonesian sweet thick soya sauce called ketchup manis is also added, Other vegetable, meat and seafood ingredients may be added, and garnished with crispy fried garlic slices. Nasi goreng is served with sunny side up fried egg and kerupuk an Indonesian shrimp or fish crackers. For my version I used bottled sambal belacan which is now readily available in supermarkets and Asian stores. The quantity defends on how much heat you could take. I also added pork cutlets and some shrimps. you may use chicken if you want. Here is my Indonesian Nasi Goreng recipe.
