Nasi Goreng!


I absolutely love this dish! Every time i go Indonesia or Singapore or China, i order this.

Since i know, how it supposed to be/look, here is my recipe.


Chicken- 1 breast fillet, cut in thin strips.

Prawns- 10-12

Rice- 2-3 cups of cold cooked rice

Onion- 1 sliced in half rings

Garlic- 5 cloves chopped

Ginger- 2 inch chopped

Cabbage- 1 cup shredded

Kecap manis- 2 tea spoons ( important)

Shrimp paste- 2 tea spoons

Soy sauce- 1 table spoon

Sambal oyelek- 2 tea spoons ( if you don’t have it, don’t worry)

Oyster sauce- 1 tablespoon. (important)

2-3 eggs

Base oil- i am using olive- ย tablespoons

Sesame oil- 2 teaspoons

Salt, pepper to taste.


Fry an omelette with each egg, and shred it to strips, set aside.

Heat an oil and fry onion, ginger, garlic and shrimp paste for a couple of minuets.

Add chicken and prawns, cook for 3 minuets, constantly stirring.

Add cabbage, keep on stirring till cabbage softened rice, stir.

Add the rest of the sauces , salt ,pepper and eggs. Done.

Should be served with fresh cilantro and spring onions, bout i don’t have any.

Serve hot, but cold or reheated still nice.
