Main Description.

Nasi Goreng is distinguished from other Asian fried rice recipes by its aromatic, earthy and smoky flavours

 Nasi goreng is traditionally served at home for breakfast and it is traditionally made out of leftover rice from the night before.

I prefer the Prawns Nasi Goreng over Chicken or beef, so here i bring to you My Favorite Prawns Nasi Goreng.


  • 250 GMs Medium Sized Prawns (deshelled)

    3 Tablespoons dark soy sauce

    1/4 Teaspoon Black Crushed Pepper Powder

    Salt to taste

    2 Tablespoon Ready made Shrimp Paste or Sambal

    2 Tablespoons Oil

    2 beaten eggs

    1 Egg cooked sunny side up 

    7 Garlic Cloves Minced

    1 Tablespoon Salted Butter

    1 Large Bowl Leftover refrigerated any white Rice

    100 GMs Vegetables of your choice

    (French beans, Carrots, Green peas)



  • 01

    In a very high preheated wok, add the oil as soon as the oil heats up, add butter and allow it to melt, add the deshelled prawns and fry it for 2 mins each side, once the prawns are cooked fried remove and keep aside, in the same wok add Chopped Garlic and fry it for a minute or two, till garlic flavours gets infused in the oil and do not brown them.

  • 02

    add the beaten eggs and do not over cook the scrambled eggs, add the left over cooked rice and mix well.

  • 03

    add the Vegetables and cook for 2 mins and do not over cook

  • 04

    mix the sugar with soy sauce and add it to the wok on the side of the wok, the sauces need to sizzle and burnt slightly, to get the right flavours.

  • 05

    add  shrimp paste or sambal toss and mix nicely, finally add the Chopped Spring onions for garnishing.

    cook an egg sunny side up, add little salt & pepper, place it on the rice, your perfect Prawns Nasi goreng is ready to eat. 

  • Always allow the sauces like vinegar and soy sauce to burn, so try pouring the sauces on the side of the pan or wok, so that the sauces sizzle and burn from the side heat, and then mix the rice which is placed at the centre accordingly.

  • Avoid using regular onions or mushrooms or any other vegetables that leave water, it will definitely make your Fried rice moist….

  • Make sure the rice is left over and refrigerated one day prior in the refrigerator Or else your fried rice can get moist if you use fresh rice.

  • Vegetarians can skip the Prawns and add Vegetables of your choice
  • Non Vegetarians can add chicken, lamb, beef or Calamari.
