Nasi Goreng Tom Yam (TomYam Fried Rice)


Nasi goreng/fried rice is the trademark in my house (Tom Yam Prawn Fried RiceTom Yam Chicken Fried Rice and Belacan Fried Rice). Call it a lazy meal or a convenient meal, nasi goreng generally is fried up on the days I wake up late, on the days I don't actually feel like cooking neither can I decide on what to pack from outside to put a meal on the table for the two of us. So, nasi goreng I make and pretty much can be made with anything, I mean with ingredients you have in the fridge. Having said that, a spicy version usually is preferred and for this version, another featuring the big bold Thai flavours. 

Ingredients
For the chilli paste
1 lemongrass/serai
1/2 inch roasted belacan
1/2 inch lengkuas/galangal
3 shallots
4-5 fresh red chillies
** blend/ground to a smooth paste

Others
3 cups cooked white rice
2-3 squids/sotong - clean and slice into rings 
10 medium size prawns - de-vein and leave the tail on
1 tsp fish sauce
3-4 kaffir/limau purut leaves -  slice thinly 
10 long beans - slice into thin rings
1 tsp sugar
4 tbsp oil
Salt (if needed) 
Method
In the heated oil, fry the chilli paste till aromatic and oil floats.
Add squids and prawns.
Stir and cook to tenderise both the seafood. 
Add rice, long beans, fish sauce, sugar and salt (if needed).
Stir all together. 
Lastly add lime leaves, stir again and remove from heat.
Serve with limau nipis/calamansi lime.
