Yummy! I love the Indonesian recipes and this is no different! This is a great dish to have with the Ayam Goreng recipe I have posted. What you can include in the recipe which I personally don't is chicken and little prawns (cooked of course), to add to the actual rice mixture. Think I might whip up a batch tonight for hubby and I. Enjoy! Oh by the way I use Basmati Rice - its my personal preference.
- 2 garlic cloves (crushed)
- 1 inch grated ginger
- 1 spring onions, finely chopped or 1 small onion
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon sambal oelek (Indonesian Hot Chili Sauce)
- 1 tablespoon fish oil
- 1 teaspoon shrimp paste
- 3 tablespoons ketjap manis (Sweet Soy Sauce)
- 1 1⁄2 cups bean sprouts (mixed) or 1 1⁄2 cups asian greens (mixed) or 1 1⁄2 cups frozen peas (mixed) or 1 1⁄2 cups carrots (mixed)
- 4 cups cooked rice
- fried egg (to serve on top) (optional)
- cooked chicken, shredded (optional)
- cooked small shrimp (optional)
- Heat oil in wok or large fry pan.
- Add garlic, ginger and spring onions and sauté for a minute.
- Add sesame oil, sambal oelek, fish oil, shrimp paste and ketjap manis and stir through for a few seconds.
- Add the veggie mix and toss through for a minute.
- Add the cooked rice and keep stirring through until well coated but not sticky.
- Add the chicken and prawns and fold into the rice mixture.
- Taste mixture and if necessary add some more of the spices.
- If you want to top the dish with a fried egg, fry the eggs in a separate fry pan.
- Serve out rice and top with the fried egg.
Beautiful combination of flavours! I used quite a large amount of cooked chicken and topped with a few large prawns which made it a wonderful meal in itself.
