I first had this at a friend’s house on a cold winter’s Friday night. She knocked it up in what seemed like minutes and we sat in her kitchen gossiping over forkfuls of fragrant, spicy and satisfying deliciousness.
Nasi Goreng means ‘fried rice’ in Indonesian but it’s so much more than that.
For all Nuush recipes and cooking and salad dressings in general we advise that you use extra virgin olive oil for its significant health benefits.
*Rice needs to be freshly cooked and used straight away, as pre-cooked rice is a food poisoning risk unless you buy it in a sealed pouch.
Note: An easy way to cook fluffy brown rice is to use a microwave. Cover the rice to 1cm above rice level with boiling water ad microwave for 14-16 mins. Works well in a shallower dish.
Heat the oil in a large fast-heating pan over a high heat but not til smoking.
Fry the onion for a few mins until softened and slightly caramelised.
Add the chilli and garlic and cook for another couple of mins.
Add the carrot and cabbage, cook for 2 mins, then add the baby corn and the cashews and cook for a further minute.
Add the rice and stir to properly heat through. Add the fish sauce, ketjap manis and some seasoning if necessary.
Either soft boil, poach or fry the eggs.
Serve the rice topped with the eggs and drizzled with chilli sauce.
Wholegrain rice is a great source of fibre and B vitamins, combined with the vegetables and egg this dish will give you a range of vitamins and minerals including Vitamins A, B2, B3, B12, Folate, C, E, D, and minerals selenium phosphorus, iron, copper, manganese, magnesium and zinc.
