Indonesian Fried Rice - Nasi Goreng



I'm on a health kick right now. I mean, it's more like going back to the healthy eating ways. I haven't realized how much I missed my old and good ways! You know the usuals... Using whole wheat flour, banning processed foods, skipping on the wine and so on.
Now that I look back, no wonder I gained 5 pounds in a month! I was eating all the wrong foods! Like white bread! I stopped eating white bread when I was 14! What the hell was I thinking? That's right, I was not thinking at all. I let in to all the cravings. 

If you are in the same shoes, trust me! Do not let your cravings control your hands when it comes to chips, cookies or nutella. Because cravings are strong and forceful creatures. You can't see them but they can move hands and mouth and teeth and will make you gain weight if you don't pay attention!

You know what's the worse? When cravings are combined with emotional eating. Or stress eating that will lead to binge eating. It will create an evil circle that's so hard to get out of. I would know since I'd been there. But it just takes a little willpower and it's gone! :)

So I've been cooking a lot lately to avoid the cravings! Lots of veggies and brown rice and wholesome foods that are not only healthy but they taste pretty legit too! I'm actually thinking about making a series of "easy, healthy and quick weekday dinners". It's an idea just popped to my head but let me know if anyone's interested! :)

I make this recipe the most often becuase it's just sooo good! I'm not saying it's 100% authentic because I did alter the original recipe a bit to my own tastebuds so feel free to change it also! :) I got hooked on rice over this summer when I spent 2 months in Indonesia. Best Foods Ever! Seriously, among so many things I miss the food the most :)
Just look at some of the yummy things that actually don't look that yummy but believe me, they were the most delicious meals EVER.

Spicy eggplant with "spinach", a fish stick and a huge fish :)

Chicken satay, grilled chicken pieces coated with a delicious peanut sauce

Omlette, tempeh, fish, sambal and rice

Pulled pork with tiny pieces of spicy tempeh (soo healthy), green beans, a fish stick over rice

This picture is not about the food as you can tell..... :) 

That's how you can pick out the foods you like :)

Oh! Who's that?? :) Sneaky me, huh? 

But back to the recipe! It's for one person and it's so quick!

Indonesian Fried Rice - Nasi Goreng
for 1 person

1/3 cup rice - I use Basmati or brown rice and cook it way before the frying
1 spring onion - chopped
2 cloves of garlic - chopped into very small pieces
1 medium carrot - chopped 
1/4 of a red bell pepper - thinly sliced
1/2 red chili - optional, leave it out if you don't like spicy
a handful of chopped cilantro
1 Tbsp oyster sauce
1/2 Tbsp light soy sauce
1/2 Tbsp kechap manis (sweet soy sauce)
1 egg

Cook the rice in 2/3 cup water over very low heat until it's soft. About 10 minutes for me.
Let it cool down. You shouldn't use warm rice for this recipe.
Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a wok, add the white parts of the spring onion and garlic, saute for a few minutes, then add the carrots, bell pepper pieces and the chili. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt.
Break apart your cold rice with a fork and add it to the wok. Fry it for a few minutes over high heat and add your sauces. Stir well and fry for about 4-5 minutes more.
Sprinkle it with the green parts of the spring onion and cilantro.
In a clean pan, fry the egg and place it over the rice. Enjoy :)

ps: You can add in chicken as well. You just fry it in oil and season it with salt and then continue with the original recipe!

  5. Nasi goreng, literally meaning "fried rice" in Indonesian, can refer simply to fried pre-cooked rice, a meal including stir fried rice in a small amount of cooking oil or margarine, typically spiced with kecap manis, shallot, garlic, ground shrimp paste, tamarind and chilli and accompanied by other ingredients, particularly egg, chicken and prawns.

Hungarian Kakaós Csiga (Chocolate Rolls)

Frankly, I missed baking so much! Even though I needed one baking-free month to lose all the weight I gained due to the excessive baking mania I got over this summer I just cannot stop it! So I decided that I don't have to give up this love of mine but I do have to figure out something that will not leave me end up gaining weight again. What to do, what to do...Bake only in the weekends! And probably I should get a grip and not stuff my face until I can't move...Which didn't really happen today. I ate like 6 of these lovely chocolate rolls...I guess, no dinner for Csilla tonight :P These rolls are from a traditional Hungarian pastry recipe. I called my Grandma to ask for the recipe and as it always happens with Grandma recipes she did not know the measurements...I don't know if it's only with my grandmas but they always work with their eyes so they usually have no idea how much grams I need from this or that... So I turned to an ancient Hungarian cookbook and that i…

Sajtos Pogácsa - Hungarian Cheese Puffs

We have different traditions in Hungary in the holiday season. Santa, I mean St Nicholas, comes on 6th December here and on Christmas Eve we are waiting for the little Jesus to bring our presents! Of course, as an almost 22-year-old I don't expect any gifts on Nicholas day...That is why I was so surprised when I got absolutely the coolest thing ever! A plastic bread-board! I had a huge wooden one that was very heavy, very hard to clean and needed such a big space. Look at this beauty :)

It has everything I might need. Measurements, unit converter, it can be rolled up, I don't need to use flour for kneading...I know exactly how big I need to knead the dough, it is perfect!  So, of course I just had to try it out! :)
I've been waiting for these cheese puffs' recipe for years now. It is a traditional, old school Hungarian pastry. It is made with yeast and it tastes amazing! These mini puffs are crunchy on the outside and super duper soft inside! This recipe is the ultimate c…

Coconut-Almond Butter stuffed Chocolate Cups

I wasn't gonna make a dessert today. Let alone something chocolatey. No no no! I wanted to have a dessert-free week. And look, I made chocolate cups! How did this happen??  Anyways... These cups are amazing. Seriously, finger-licking good. Not exaggerating. You need to make this!! I used to go crazy for Reese's but after a while I got so fed up with the excessive sweetness. Yeah, I find Reese's way too sweet and too dense. That's why I fell in love with these cups. These are not overly sweet, yet really rich and the salt on top  takes it to the next level. I am in love. Although I did eat only a half of it. But I'm thinking hard to eat another half :) I might as well just do it. What's the harm? 1 pound on my hips? Oh well! :P
So it all started with me buying a bag of almonds. To make almond butter. Then I wanted something extra so I started making coconut butter first and I kinda added more coconut than almonds... It's like raffaello butter. Utterly deliciou…
