Nasi Goreng Udang & Bebola Ikan (Prawn and Fish Ball Fried Rice)


Throwing or wasting food is big no in our family. Therefore, I'm careful with the amount of food I cook but sometimes it’s unavoidable. Whenever there's balance of dishes and rice, we finish them for our next meal, within a day or two. The other thing I do with leftover rice is convert it to a tasty new meal of fried rice, the dish you are free to add anything. 


To the rice, I added ingredients I had in my fridge, to clear and clean up my fridge; struggling to breathe for space. This fried rice packs a terrific wallop - wholesome and filling comfort food; tasty and appealing in a common way.  For those who like it spicy, serve with chilies in soy sauce. 

Ingredients
3 cups cooked white rice
2 eggs
5-6 fish balls - cut into two
10 medium size prawns - de-vein and leave the tail on
7 garlic - chopped
3-4 salad leaves - sliced
2-3 sprigs spring onions - sliced/shredded
1/2 tbsp light soy sauce
Cucumber (as needed) - cubed 
Cherry tomatoes - cut into two
5-6 tbsp oil
Pepper and salt for taste 
Method
Heat oil, break in eggs and scramble. 
Remove and keep aside.
In the same oil, sauté garlic.
Add prawns and fish balls.
Stir and fry till both are cooked.
Add rice and season with soy sauce, pepper and salt.
Stir all in quickly.
Lastly, add spring onions, salad leaves and scrambled eggs.
Give another good stir and remove from heat.
Place rice on a plate.
Add cucumber and tomatoes around and on top.

  8. I am completely with you on no-wastage. And yes, rice never gets wasted because you can do so much with it. I don't know anybody who doesn't like a good fried rice.If it's this one, my entire family is sure to over eat. Mouth watering pictures as always.
