    1. 1
      Note: This dish is usually served with traditional meat accompaniments or with meat in the dish; so the meat and cabbage to go in is optional.

      Stir the rice with a fork to separate the grains.
    3. 3
      Pour a small amount of oil in a wok and fry the egg to make a thin omelet; cool, then shred.
    4. 4
      Heat the remaining oil in the wok and fry the shallots, garlic, chilies and shrimp paste until the shallots are tender (if adding any meat or shredded cabbage to this dish, add now and cook until meat is cooked through).

      what a delicious recipe! i used canned chicken and frozen veggie mix and it was a great success. if you do not have time to wait for fresh rice to dry out, spread it thinly on a baking sheet and pop it in the freezer for about 15-20 minutes. thank you for the great recipe!

      Sue, thanks for a delicious and authentic nasi goreng recipe. The first time I tried this my rice was too "fresh" and it just went all gooey. So I tried it again with rice that was two or three days old and had dried out a bit, and it turned out perfect! I used half brown, half white rice, and added some shrimp and bacon, then served with green vegetables in oyster sauce. There are endless possibilities for this dish - to make it more of a main meal you could add some peas or spinach, perhaps some pineapple. I'm sure I will get years of experimentation out of it! Good one Sue!
