Recipe 7/50 : Indonesia : Nasi Goreng

Weekend flew sooo fast again. Days are just running by. Today I'm posting national dish of Indonesia, Nasi Goreng,which means fried rice in Indonesian. Its basically adopted from chinese fried rice. The basia diference between Indonesian and chinese is mainly the application of sweet soy sauce and spiceness.  The rice used to make nasi goreng is cooked ahead of time and left to cool down , which is one reason to use rice cooked from the day before. Infact, this applies to any fried rice to that case.



1 cup rice, cooked
2 tbsp Indonesian sweet soy sauce
1 tomato, diced
1/2 cup cabbage finely sliced
3 eggs
1 Chicken breast fillet
Spring onion , sliced
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
2-3 tbsp vegetable oil
4-5 garlic cloves
1 medium onion
3-5 Green chili
Separate the rice grains and set aside.
Grind garlic,onion,chili to paste and set aside.
Beat the eggs, season well with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tbsp vegetable oil, make scramble egg. Set aside.
Season the chicken fillet with salt and pepper and fry and when it's cool enough, shred and set aside.
Heat the oil then sauté the grind paste until fragmant. Add diced tomatoes ,cabbage and sweet soy sauce, cook until the tomatoes are cooked.
Add shredded chicken, scramble egg, spring onion and the rice. Combine well, cook over a small flame and cook for 5 minutes.
Serve hot!!!!
