Nasi (goreng) Night

We love nasi goreng in this house. Our addiction began in Bali on our honeymoon where we ate it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Literally.

I made it for hubby tonight even though I am on a low carb diet and can't eat it. Yes, I know, I'm Wife of the Year material.

Here is my recipe:

Rice - enough for however many you're feeding
Vegies - I like to use a packet of bean sprouts, half a capsicum (diced), bunch of spring onions (chopped), handful of spinach, 1 carrot (julienned), 1/4-1/2 cup coriander leaves, and about a cup of cabbage thinly sliced.
Soy sauce
Indofoods Nasi Goreng paste
1 heaped tspn chicken stock powder
Sesame oil

Cook your rice. I used 1 cup of rice and 1.5 cups of water in my rice cooker tonight. Once it is cooking and the water is hot, add the chicken stock powder and stir through.

Heat some oil in a wok. Beat 2 eggs lightly and pour into hot oil. Allow to cook through on one side then flip and cook other side. Remove from wok.

Add some more oil to the wok if you need to and add your vegies.

Stirfry for a few minutes until cooked to your liking.

Add some soy sauce to the veg and stir through. Tonight I added some leftover roast pork loin at this point too.

Chop up your egg and mix through vegies.

Once rice is cooked mix nasi goreng paste through it.

Add rice and a splash of sesame oil to vegies and mix through until combined.


Note: Tonight I didn't use the vegies I usually use as we have run out. Instead I used frozen mixed veg, green capsicum, broccoli and cabbage. I only used 1 egg and 1 cup of (uncooked) rice as it was only for hubby. It has still made enough for him to have two bowls full and there is lots leftover for tomorrow!
