Nasi Goreng Belacan Udang ( Shrimp Paste And Prawn Fried Rice)

Big rice eaters we are just like most Asians. Not always but some times the day begins with nasi lemak (nasi lemak prawn sambal and vegetarian mutton rendang nasi lemak), lunch is also rice (George Chuah's nasi lemak) and I still need rice for dinner ( Nasi Goren Belacan Ikan Bilis and Fish Ball& Cabbage Fried Rice). So switching to Basmati rice was a wise decision for health is wealth and for its delicate aroma and exquisite flavour. Pricey, then again, better to pay for quality ingredients instead of the exorbitant medical bill.

Valuing left over cooked rice is another thing as waste not what not is still the concept. Always fried rice is the nearest option and belacan another fav (belacan fried rice and nasi goreng belacan ikan bilis) which brings to this latest belacan fried rice - prawns, kailan and chilli belacan paste. 

3 cups cooked rice
10-15 medium size prawns - de-vein and leave the tail on
A bunch of kai-lan/Chinese kale (about 100g) - sliced 
4 tbsp oil
Salt for taste (use sparingly)
For the chilli paste
4-5 red chillies
1/2 inch roasted belacan/shrimp paste
4 shallots
5 garlic

Fry chilli paste in heated oil till aromatic.
Add prawns and fry till pinkish. 
Add rice and salt (sparingly as belacan is salty)
Stir to combine all the ingredients.
Lastly add kai-lan and stir before removing from heat.

  28. You said it Nava! The days I don't eat rice at least once, I don't feel satisfied and actually start craving for it. And nothing like fried rice. I do it all the time with leftover rice and different combinations. I have to try it with belacan though after reading your post. Your's looks better than any restaurant fried rice.

  29. Wow this is one of my favorite fried rice. Adding kailan makes the rice very colorful. Lovely :)
