We're having Nasi Goreng for dinner tonight - I'll be back later with pictures and the recipe. It looks yummy in the magazine picture so I hope it turns out nice.
NASI GORENG (translates as Fried Rice - a staple food of Indonesian Cuisine)
2 eggs, beaten
1 bunch coriander, chopped
1 small onion, diced
400gms chicken breast tenders, chopped small
2 small red chillies (mine were mild)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 carrot, grated
1 small zucchini, grated
1/2 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup frozen green beans
2 cups of cooked brown rice
handful of bean sprouts
juice of 1 lime
1/2 bunch spring onions, sliced fine
3 tbspn sesame oil
2 tbspn olive oil
4 tbspn soy sauce
Cook (by boiling in water) the brown rice(a cup and a bit should make 2 cups of cooked rice) until tender. Drain and let cool.
Whisk 2 eggs together. In a non- stick frypan, sprayed with a little olive oil spray, pour the eggs in and let flatten out. Cook like an omelette on one side, them flip over when just browned. Remove from pan onto plate, roll up then slice rounds to make ribbons of egg.
Heat sesame oil in wok or large non-stick pan. Fry off onion then add chicken until browned. Add olive oil then chilli and garlic, stirring through for a minute or so. Then add carrot, zucchini, beans, peas, continually stirfrying through. Add brown rice then soy sauce, keep tossing mixture to stop from sticking. Finally, add bean sprouts, egg omelette and coriander and lime juice. (I hope I haven't forgotten anything).
Serve in large bowls, garnished with coriander and spring onions. Add more soy sauce if you like.
*Verdict: We really enjoyed this dish - next time I might try 1/2 white rice and 1/2 brown and maybe a dash of sweet chilli sauce and/or a bit of palm sugar (1 tspn) - (it was a little salty). You live and learn and everyone's tastes are different. What do you think?
