Nasi Goreng

Although I have started my life as a person in the "real world", waking up before 10 am and limiting the number of venti americanos with soy milk I drink in a day, there are some parts of me that will never change. Avid fans of late night dining, netflix, and $2 wine, my roommate and I have become regulars at a local asian restaurant. This recipe - especially the delicious fried egg - provides me with the right dose of nostalgia for greasy goodness, but without the stomach ache. It is simply delicious - especially when you add a ton more garlic and whatever other fresh veggies you have around.

1 onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves finely chopped
1 tbsp ginger, grated
2 tbsp Nasi Goreng paste
1 head of broccoli (about 3 cups), florets removed and separated
2 cups sugar snap peas, sliced
3 cups cabbage, shredded
1/4 cup water
4 cups cooked rice
3-4 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp fish sauce
2 tbsp honey
4 eggs, fried
Ketchup manis, to serve
chopped chillies, to serve

In a large, hot wok, fry the onion, garlic and ginger until fragrant.
Add the Nasi Goreng paste and fry for another minute.
Add the broccoli florets, sugar snap peas and cabbage and stir fry for 5 minutes.
Add the water and allow the vegetables to cook until the water has evaporated.
Add the cooked rice, soy sauce, fish sauce and honey and stir to combine everything. Allow to fry for another 5 minutes and serve with a fried egg on top.

Serves 4
