Nasi Goreng (Fried Rice)

Missed the nasi goreng that my mom used to make for us when we were young. Fortunately, I have about a pack of leftover rice in the fridge waiting to be used *grin* This time round I went manual, used my pestle and mortar .. heh I simply love biting the small bits of onions, anchovies, chili together with the fried rice.

The freshly pounded ingredients

The final product

1 large onion
2 medium garlic
5 fresh red chilli, de-seeded
1 1/2 tbsp ikan bilis, soaked
1 1/2 cm belacan (prawn paste)
1 tsp salt to taste
3-4 cups cooked rice
1 egg beaten
3 tbsp oil

1. Using pestle and mortar, pounded onion, garlic, chilli, salt, ikan bilis and belacan till fine
2. Heat wok with oil and stir fry pounded ingredients till fragrant
3. Add rice, stir till well combined
4. Push rice aside, pour beatened egg
5. Once egg slight cooked, scramble it and mix it with the rice
6. Continue stirring rice but without breaking it till well cooke
7. Serve hot with fish crackers and sunny side up egg

Your nasi goreng is exactly like my mom's. EXACTLY! She will purposely pound it chunky and sometimes use green chilli. Sedap....
