Sri Lankan Food Blog-Nasi Goreng recipe


In a pan, toast the belacan on low heat until it becomes dry and aromatic. Keep aside.

Then fry an egg and set aside.

Blend the shallot, garlic, red chili, and toasted belacan..

Heat up a pan, add oil. Add the above blended paste and stir-fry until aromatic.

Add the rice into the pan and stir well with the flavoring paste.

Finally add kecap manis and palm sugar into the rice and continue to stir-fry and make sure that they are well blended with the rice.

Dish out, top the nasi goreng with the fried egg and serve immediately.

I did a small alteration to the recipe.I added some vegetable to the mix.
