Nasi Goreng – World Foods Taste Team Challenge

I’m still trying to keep up with my World Foods challenges as part of the Fusion Taste Team and this week I sampled the Indonesian Fried Rice ‘Nasi Goreng’ paste, which should be available in Tesco.

The paste has quite a kick to it and is very fragrant. It is made from tomatoes, shallots and chillies with a distinctive Asian taste. It is perfect for preparing a quick fried rice dish and it’s also suitable for stir-fry dishes. I added left-over shredded, slow-cooked pork and some frozen prawns. The fried egg, I am told, is an authentic garnish though it did seem odd sticking a fried egg on top of a fried rice dish!  
I think of all the pastes and sauces I’ve tried now in the range, including Pad Thai SauceAyam Percik (Spicy Chicken) and Tom Yum Soup this one was my least favourite, but it was nice to try something different. I think I also used slightly too much paste for the quantity of rice that I had making it saltier than it should have been.
I notice that a traditional Nasi Goreng might include ‘kecap manis’ which is a sweet soy sauce, so next time I’d be inclined to throw in a tablespoon of that too to sweeten it up a touch.

Thank you once again to World Foods for sending me the hamper of goodies to try.
