Indonesian Fried Rice (Nasi Goreng)
This Indonesian dish is a great way to use leftover cooked rice combined with fresh vegetables. It is traditionally served with a fried egg on top, but here chopped egg is incorporated. Serve with grilled poultry, meat or fish.
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Serves 4 to 6
2 tbsp (25 mL) sodium-reduced soy sauce
1 tbsp (15 mL) tamarind sauce
1 tbsp (15 mL) oyster sauce
2 tsp (10 mL) Ontario Honey
1 tsp (5 mL) Sambal Oelek (or other hot sauce)
1/2 tsp (2 mL) molasses (optional)
3 tbsp (45 mL) vegetable oil
2 Ontario Eggs, beaten
1 Ontario Shallot, thinly sliced
1 Ontario Carrot, finely diced
Half Ontario Sweet Red Pepper, diced
2 Ontario Baby Bok Choy, trimmed and coarsely chopped
(or 2 cups/500 mL chopped regular Ontario Bok Choy)
3 cups (750 mL) cold cooked rice
3 Ontario Green Onions, chopped
In small bowl, combine soy sauce, tamarind sauce, oyster sauce, honey, Sambal Oelek, and molasses, if using; set aside.
In large skillet or wok, heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil over medium heat. Add eggs and cook until set, about 2 minutes, tilting pan to spread. Remove and coarsely chop; set aside.
Heat remaining oil in same skillet and add shallot. Cook stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Add carrot and red pepper, stir-fry until softened, about 2 minutes. Add bok choy and stir-fry 1 minute.
Stir in rice to blend and add sauce mixture. Stir-fry until heated through, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in green onions and chopped egg.
