Nasi Goreng

Nasi Goreng is an Indonesian version of Fried Fried, Nasi means rice and Goreng means fried. Actually it is almost similar to a Chinese fried rice but the only slight difference is the sweet soy sauce which served as the basic ingredient for nasi goring. Being a family of fried rice lovers, this triggers me again to try the Indonesian version, I browsed online a good recipe for nasi goreng, many versions are available so I tried to incorporate it my recipe to make my own version also. Most recipes calls for large amount of oil but I reduced it for health reason.

2 cups cold cooked rice
1 egg, beaten
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
¼ tsp. coriander powder
½ tsp. red pepper flakes
1 tsp. shrimp paste
15 pcs. medium shrimps, peeled
2 tbsp. sweet soy sauce (kecap manis)
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1 stalk green onion, chopped or cut into desired length
3 tbsp. cooking oil
2 tbsp. roasted onion slices
Cucumber, thinly sliced (optional)
Tomatoes, thinly sliced (optional)
