Nasi Goreng Wangi Semerbak

This is a simple nasi goreng. You would need:

  • cooked overnight rice or cooled rice
  • cilipadi - chopped
  • garlic - chopped
  • shallots - chopped
  • eggs
  • anchovies
  • carrots - diced
  • long beans - cut to your hearts desire
  • cauliflower - cut into tiny florets
  • salt
  • soy sauce (kicap pekat manis Kipas Udang)
  • lemongrass - root end, divide into 2 or 4 parts and sliced thinly
  • oil

The amount of each item depends on how much rice you're going to fry. Add the amount to your hearts desire.


  1. heat up oil and fry anchovies till crisps, put aside
  2. in the same oil, fry the chopped garlic, cilipadi & shallots
  3. just as they start to brown, add the vegetables (carrots, longbeans and cauliflower). when the veges are half cooked, push them to the side of the wok
  4. add 2-3 eggs and stir to form scrambled eggs. once the eggs firmed up, mix well with the veges
  5. add rice and mix well. then add salt and soy sauce to taste
  6. then add the lemongrass, mix well and finally add the anchovies back to the wok.
  7. mix well and your fried rice is ready!

The aroma of the lemongrass & sweet soy sauce really perks up a sleepy guy for sahur :o)

optional: sometimes i even add kaffir leaves (daun limau purut) which i slice very thinly. you would need just a little bit just to add aroma to the fried rice.
