Nasi Goreng

Nasi Goreng

On a Friday night I have extra time in the afternoon to make a dinner that is a little bit more elaborant or special.  This Friday for Friday night fakeaway I decided to try my hand at Nasi Goreng.  I love Chinese dishes and this was one I have wanted to re-create at home for a while.

The rice based dish combines three meats – chicken, bacon and prawns with spices and vegetables topped with a perfect sunny side up egg.  It is absolutely delicious and makes plenty for leftovers.

I did use a store bought Nasi Goreng paste as I wanted to get an authentic flavour.  The paste was too spicy for the kids to eat the dish, so to serve this for a family either, remove a portion before adding the paste or go with an alternative sauce mix of kecap manis and soy sauce – you won’t get the same flavour but it will be child friendly.

I used my newly gifted Breville Smart Rice Box that cooked the rice perfectly and without any mess.  I normally cook my rice on the stove and battle boil overs and stuck on rice.  This made cooking rice a breeze. I’ll write more about this in another post.
