Not Your Usual Nasi Goreng

Ha! Why am I calling this Not Your Usual Nasi Goreng (fried rice)?

Not Your Usual Nasi Goreng by Shea Sonia

Usually, we'll just use cooked white rice to make fried rice. THIS recipe requires you to ditch the rice cooker for a heavy pan and cook the rice yourself. Still, it is as easy as other recipes I've shared, I promise.

In this recipe, I used shrimps but you can use squid, chicken, meat, veggie or whatever you can find in your fridge. Season accordingly.

Ingredients for 2 servings

• 1 cup uncooked, washed long grain rice
• 2 cups chicken broth (I cheated & used 2 cups water + 1/2 tbsp chicken seasoning)
• 1 tbsp salted butter
• 2 tbsp olive oil
• 10-12 peeled, deveined shrimps
• 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
• 1 tbsp chopped parsley
• 1 tsp salt & pepper


1) Season shrimps with salt & pepper. Put aside. 

2) Melt butter in heavy pan, stir in rice. Add chicken broth. Let boil & once all liquid absorbed, cover the pan. Cook on low heat for 15 minutes.

3) Heat olive oil in a wok. Cook shrimps before adding in cooked rice, cheese & parsley. Mix well.

P.s. Stir rice occassionally after 8 minutes of covering the pan (after liquid all absorbed).
