Nasi Goreng Recipe

The best way to try authentic exotic dishes is to visit their country of origin. Thing is, it’s quite expensive to go out of the country just to savor such wonderful treats. Thanks to the internet, we can always look for recipes and information on where we can shop for ingredients that we’re not so familiar with.

One unique recipe that caught my interest was Nasi Goreng, which is a popular dish in Indonesia and Malaysia. And since the quest for tasting something new and distinctive is never ending, and creating dishes such as Nasi Goreng is simply a must. Note though, cooking this dish may take some time, so you might want to take out your iPad and play a few rounds on to keep yourself entertained.


1 red chilli
1 onion
1 bulb of garlic
½ tsp palm sugar
½ tsp toasted belacan (shrimp paste)
½ tbsp soy sauce
2 cups overnight rice
1 egg
2 tbsp of oil (preferably olive oil)

1. On a medium sized pan, toast the shrimp paste with low heat or until dry and aromatic.
2. Fry the egg sunny side up, set it aside.
3. Blend the onion, garlic, red chili, and the toasted shrimp paste.
4. On the same pan, heat the oil and add in the blended mixture.
5. Increase the heat to high and add the overnight rice.
6. Stir-fry until the mixture spreads evenly with the rice.
7. When done, transfer the rice mix into a bowl and top with a sunny side up egg.
8. The dish is best served with chicken, salted duck egg, fried potatoes, and vegetables.
