Nasi Goreng Indonesia

Nasi Goreng Indonesia by Fitri D. // Rumah Manis
Please forgive me, not to post a very interesting recipe - what ?? Nasi Goreng ? aaw, every body know how to cook. All right, I just want to give reward to my self for lunch today, I work so hard at the gym for a couple weeks , though .. ok, nice lunch ! why not ? than just boring veggie+fruit combination smoothie ..

Nasi goreng, literally meaning fried rice, original made from leftover rice and eaten as a breakfast dish. Now more usual server for lunch or as the basis of a larger evening meal. This dish is best made from cold leftover rice, but you still can cook with a new rice from rice cooker but just keep 4 hours before cook to better taste. And one of secret ingredient (now is reveal) : 'kecap manis' - Indonesian soy bean sauce ; DON'T DARE to subtitute kecap manis with other soy bean sauce :P you won't get the same version as we love to eat.

Anyway, nasi goreng is become popular, simple dish in our family too - my husband like eat his version of nasi goreng which mean : no chili, no garlic, no cracker and topping with jalapeno slice pickle.  And my little one version is : no chili, add carrot, a lot of cabbage, and kerupuk :)

Everybody has their own version , but I cook like this :
6 shallots
3 garlic
5 g shrimp paste, toasted
10 g red chili or you can use 1 tbsp of Sambal Oelek
2 eggs
150 g chicken breast, deep-fried and shredded
1/4 cup cooking oil
500g rice, cold
1 tsp pepper
3 tbsp kecap manis cap Bango or other Indonesian Brand, I just cant live without Bango
1 spring onion, chopped
Shallot flakes
Fried egg, sunny side up - in fact I like my fried egg with kind of runny yolk looking ^_^

Grind shallots, garlic, shrimp paste and chili to fine paste.
Scramble the egg , set a side
Heat cooking oil in a wok and stir-fry spice paste for 2 minutes, till brownish and fragrant, medium heat. Push spices to side of wok and pour egg into the wok.
Add rice, pepper, kecap manis and soy sauce. Stir-fry everything quickly over high heat, for 6-7 minutes. Ad the scramble egg. spring onion Mix well.
Serve warm with condiments such as sliced tomatoes/cucumber, fried egg, crackers, etc.

True - everyone has their own style of nasi goreng. Mine is always RED with chilli, but when hubby balik kampung to Jakarta and come back to Singapore, there is always kecap Bango in his suitcase, then I will make nasi goreng hitam manis LOL
