Malaysian nasi goreng, which is a simple fried rice, usually served with a whole fried egg on top.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (approx. 250g) cold cooked rice
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp belacan
  • 1 or 2 red chillies finely chopped
  • 1 shallot finely chopped
  • handful green beans chopped
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
  • 2 tbsp kicap manis
  • 2 eggs whisked lightly (1 extra for serving)
  • pinch white pepper
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 spring onions chopped for serving

 

Tip – if you can’t be bothered to chop everything just add the garlic, chillies, shallots to a blender and whizz up with a dash of oil to make a paste.

Instructions

  1. Start by getting your wok nice and hot
  2. Add the belacan first and dry cook it without any oil to bring the flavor out
  3. It will turn quite crumbly and this will only take 30 secs
  4. Add the cooking oil, sesame oil, minced garlic, chilli and shallot
  5. Stir quickly for 1 minute, add the green beans
  6. Stir fry quickly for another 30 seconds and then push to one side of the wok
  7. Add the egg and let it cook like an omelette on the bottom of the pan
  8. Once the egg is nearly cooked through add the cooked rice and stir everything together
  9. Add the kicap manis, pinch of white pepper
  10. Serve hot with an extra fried egg on top if you like and sprinkle the spring onions to finish

Notes

The main thing to remember when cooking this dish is to have all your ingredients ready to go into the wok. Once you start cooking it will all cook very quickly.
