Last year, I was contacted by Kuoni and asked if I would like to contribute to a cookbook featuring recipes from some of the destinations around the world that they travel too. I was given Malaysia which is a country I have heard lots about but I have never travelled too or really heard much about their food. I did some research and Nasi Goreng (fried rice) which is a dish popular all over South East Asia kept popping up. My version below is as authentic to the Malaysian version as I could be whilst using ingredients that are easily available over here.
- 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
- 5-6 spring onions, trimmed and sliced finely
- 2 large garlic cloves, peeled and sliced finely
- 1 red chilli, de-seeded if preferred and finely chopped
- 250g cooked and cooled egg fried rice
- 300g cooked skinless and boneless shredded chicken
- 3 tablespoons of soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons of ketjap manis (Indonesian soy sauce - available from Ocado)
- 1 teaspoon of sambal (chilli bean paste- available from Ocado)
- Small bunch of coriander, chopped finely
- In a wok or large frying pan, fry the spring onions, garlic and chilli in the vegetable oil until softened.
- Add in the rice
- then add in the cooked chicken and stir fry for a couple of minutes until cooked through
- Next, add in the soy sauce, the ketjap manis and the sambal and stir well to ensure the rice and the meat is evenly coated
- Finish by adding the coriander, garnish with chilli slices, eat and enjoy!
Let me know if you give this or any other of my fellow food blogger’s recipes in the book a try!
