Boyfriend's Nasi Goreng Kampung (Malay Fried Rice) Recipe

Saturday, March 02, 2013 | Labels: , , |

I love cooking and so far apart from my mom, no one has actually cooked for me that is until my boyfriend, F.  I am a huge fan of fried rice and after tasting my boyfriend's yummy fried rice, I wanted to share his simple recipe with you, my dear readers.  This is a spicy and appetising fried rice made simply with shallots, chili peppers, anchovies and onions.  F's tip is to add some butter to the dish instead of just using oil.  The small amount of butter adds to the richness of the anchovies and really takes the dish up a few notches.
