Nasi goreng

This is a typical fried rice dish from Indonesia, but is also part of the Malaysian cuisine. This is not the typical fried rice, but a dish that combines flavors, spiciness and fragrance....I love it!

Nasi goreng

2 cups cooked white rice
1 tsp. dried shrimp 
2 tbsp fish sauce
3 cloves garlic chopped
3 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 green chili diced
1 1/2 tbsp. brown sugar
3 shallots, roughly chopped
2 carrots sliced and steamed
1/2 cup of green peas
Olive oil
eggs and cucumbers sliced for serving

Soak the dry shrimps in hot water for 30 minutes. In a small blender, mix the shrimps, fish sauce, garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar and green chili. Set aside.

Cook the rice and let it cool. Cook the carrots and green peas. Let it cool. Fry the shallots until dark brown set aside.

In a hot wok, add some oil and stir fry the onions and carrots. Add the rice, and add the sauce. Mix it well. 

Serve a portion on a plate, and sprinkle with fry shallots. Place an egg on top, and decorate with cucumbers. ENJOY!


  1. We make two versions of fried rice at home, one is Thai, the other Vietnamese. Maybe we'll add a third!

  2. Looks so GOOD! But I need more eggs :-) please

  3. I love finding new ways to eat rice. This sounds and looks very tasty. I see the egg on top in a lot of Asian cuisine.
