Directions

  1. Bring rice, water, and salt to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons sunflower oil in a wok or skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir chicken, garlic, and red chile pepper until chicken is golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in curry paste until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add cooked rice and green onions, cooking and stirring for 5 minutes more. Season with soy sauce.
  3. Push rice mixture to one side of the wok. Heat remaining 1 teaspoon sunflower oil in middle of wok; cook and stir eggs until just set, about 1 minute. Stir rice mixture into eggs. Sprinkle with peanuts and cilantro. Serve immediately.

My parents used to buy Nasi Goreng from a local shop when I was a child. This recipe is a perfect reflection of that delicious dish. It's interesting to me that the addition of curry is what gives this dish it's unique taste. This is a new family favorite comfort food! My only change was the addition of peas to make it a complete meal.
