A simple Indonesian rice dish that is surprisingly tasty.
On the photo above is the fried rice served with a baked egg, prawn crackers, pickles, seroendeng and fried onions.

Serves: 4.
Preparation time : 60 minutes.

Instead of using a packet of paste for fried rice from Conimex, I used a paste that I made myself.

Ingredients Paste for Fried Rice:

1 medium onion (chopped)
2 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
1 teaspoon shrimp paste,
1 red chilli (finely chopped)
2 teaspoons coriander,
3 teaspoons goela Djawa (Javanese sugar).

Directions Paste for Fried Rice:

Rub the onion, garlic, shrimp paste, chili, goela djawa and coriander in a mortar very fine or puree in a food processor.
It don't need to be totally pureed.


400 grams rice,
paste for fried rice,
50 grams bacon (chopped),
2.5 tablespoons peanut oil,
300 grams lean pork steak (cut very small),
1 onion (chopped),
2 eggs,
1 leek,
1 to 2 teaspoons sambal oelek,
2 tablespoons soy sauce.


Cook the rice following the instructions on the package.
Place the rice aside and let it completely cool.

Salt the pork meat to taste.

Fry the bacon in the peanut oil, then add the diced and salted pork meat.
Let everything bake nicely brown.
Fry at last the chopped onion with it.

Add the paste for fried rice.
Stir through 2 raw eggs, and keep stirring until these are solidified into small particles.

Add the sliced leeks and cook them 2 minutes maximum.
Add finally the cold rice and heat it well while stirring.

Make the dish to taste with soy sauce and sambal oelek.

Side dish:

Serve this fried rice with baked eggs, pickles and prawn crackers.
Place for the lovers, extra sambal oelek or sambal badjak and soy sauce on the table.


Do you have any leftovers after dinner?
No problem!
Just fry it the next day, and you have a delisious fried rice again.
Some people find it even tastier than the first day.

Fried rice is easy to freeze.
If you make a double portion, then you can put one portion in the freezer for an easy day.
