Nasi Goreng - Indonesian Fried Rice

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by ozzygirl

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.

lordy, it was bad...the shrimp paste overpowered it... It taste so fishy and grainy and for better words pungent... the fish oil does not exist so I used fish sauce... My husband was nauseous on the first bite... Ive made nasi goring before but not with all this fish stuff... I barely can give it a one star.. my garbage disposal gives it a zero :( blah
