Indonesian Fried Rice: Nasi Goreng

When you need a quick tasty and healthy meal, curry pastes are great, I found this one in world market now I need to read up on Indonesian food and make it from scratch the ingredients are shallots, garlic, tomato paste and chili's. Stores like World Market and foreign grocery stores are a great introduction to new cuisines and put you on the search for more!

So first you make an omelette I added chilli's to mine!, cut into thin strips and keep it aside.

Then you fry onions in canola oil, scrimp with 4 tablespoons of the paste, green pepper, snow peas, peas or any veggies then slowly add cooked rice. I use a rice cooker, so all in all this meal is so easy, great for when you are short of time,


Much Love Rebecca

  10. This dish looks wonderful. I have been wanting to experiment with pastes more. Thanks for sharing!

  11. I have some red curry paste that's been sitting in my fridge since I used it in one recipe - this fried rice would be perfect to make!

  12. This looks very quick and tasty. I sometimes make my own green curry paste and freeze it in ice cube trays. The I pop them in a resealable bag in the freezer and I have it right there and waiting when I fancy a curry hit.

  13. Love fried rice; will have to try this. Thanks for sharing.

    Happy Cook: thats cool you knew what it was I didn't until I saw in the store, lol
