Who can be a better expert when we speak about fried rice? Anybody you know or will you point to Nava K because her fried rice recipes are heavily trended in the visual world or in this precious space of her's? Fried rice and yours truly? Dang a millions times. Various types and various styles, mostly, in fact all of it her own style (Kampung Fried Rice
, Chinese Fried Rice
, Lamb Fried Rice
& Malaysian Fried Rice
) and the list goes on and on, on and on. Can you blame me? No, you shouldn't because even a simple home made fried rice won't you agree is far out hundred times better than eating out and when you can't figure out what to cook for the day? Of course and like I have already repeated myself before, anything goes for fried rice (Cantonese Fried Rice
, Belacan Fried Rice
, Anchovies Long Beans Fried Rice
& Tom Yum Fried Rice
). In fact even the basic staples will do a delightful food job for fried rice (Nasi Goreng Ikan Bilis
). Today, its another style or maybe a composite of those common ingredients as per other fried rice recipes, I shall now go ahead and share this Nasi Goreng Belacan Ikan Bilis recipe with all of you. As the name of the recipe has already suggested, the ingredients are anchovies and sambal made from chilies and belacan, of course we need garlic and shallots, and for the veg, its long beans.
3 cups cooked white rice
3 tbsp tiny anchovies -soaked and rinsed
5 shallots - sliced thinly
5 garlic - chopped
10 long beans - sliced into tiny rings
Spring onion for garnishing - slice
4 tbsp oil
Salt (only if needed)
To blend/ground or use the sambal belacan
5 fresh red chillies
1/2 inch belacan - roasted
In the heated oil, fry anchovies till crispy.
Remove and keep aside.
In the same oil, sauté shallots and garlic.
Add chilli-belacan paste and stir.
Add rice and stir all together.
Lastly add anchovies and long beans.
Give a good stir and remove from heat.
Hi Nava, your belachan fried rice is extremely good. I can practically smell the fragrant scene in JB. :))ReplyDelete
Very very appetizing one pot meal, guess I need 2 plates, please!
Have a wonderful weekend.
Oh, you made your own blend of chilli + belachan! I can see that you made a few containers for storing for future use! What an effort!ReplyDelete
Wow!Belacan bloks,the best that i have tasted so far are the belacan from Kg Kuala Nyalau,BintuluReplyDelete
because they have abundance of shrimps during the season where the sea could be seen turning reddish!
Fried rice looks very very inviting and tempting. Lovely and quick super delicious...ReplyDelete

Ohh, I love fried rice, any combination works just fine, I would say fried rice is one of those fool proof recipes for sure.ReplyDelete
I remember this ingredient belecan in many of your recipes. Also I learned something about belecan from your post, good to know!
Your fried rice look perfect and appetizing. The paste is a good idea, I have never added red chilli in fried rice, I must try that to see how the flavor of the rice turn out to be! Also looks like no sauces required, so a natural taste, good one.
Fermented shrimp ,I have not heard of it before .This is such an interesting recipe.ReplyDelete
Shrimp and fried rice is one of my favourites and this combo just looks heavenly...can wait to try it over.ReplyDelete
I'll love that paste...you know how it is with us. We loved fermented fish and shrimp would taste lovely too. Most tempting meal on your plate!ReplyDelete
One of my fav is nasi goreng ikan bilisReplyDelete
Hmmm mayb next time I will add done bekacan to make it more fragrant
Gosh, u're killing me with this dish! My family likes to go to a Muslim/Indian coffee shop to order their Ikan Bilis Fried Rice cause it's real yummy. Love the addition of Belachan!ReplyDelete
The fried rice looks very delicious. I love the Belchan flavour in cooked food but before cooking the smell makes me really sick. I have brought these belchan block twice from the supermarket & the moment I get that strong fishy smell I dont cook with them. Although I love to have it outside in the food outlets.ReplyDelete
Looks so inviting.ReplyDelete
Fried rice is my moms's special and my favourite,your looks so colorful and yum ! Though Belachan is something new to me :) Lovely clicks too Nava :)ReplyDelete
Nava this new version of fried rice looks good. Is Belacan the same shrimp paste that is used in most Singaporean or Malaysian dishes. I made sambal fish that called for shrimp paste but instead I used fish sauce. I have heard a lot of praise for shrimp paste from others as well. Now I have to look for it in the Asian grocers.ReplyDelete
Love your fried rice version.. Tempting clicks.. I have seen sambal in indian grocery. Never tried a recipe with it..ReplyDelete
Hey Nava the rice looks great..:-) I am still to get used the Belacans :-)ReplyDelete
The ingredients are new to me and the dish looks amazing. Such an irresistible dishReplyDelete
You rightly said that the smell can be overpowering for some people. I can't imagine dried or fermented shrimp or fish for that matter. However, I believe I would enjoy it in this delicious looking nasi-goreng. Perhaps its strong flavors would get mellowed along with the other ingredients.ReplyDelete
Your food always looks so tasty, I wish I was your neighbor.ReplyDelete
very colorful nava.. like ur version here..ReplyDelete
oh!this looks great and colourful....this belacan cubes are new to meReplyDelete
You know Me, I'm a big fan of rice, I wish I have belacan here to make this simple and tasty fried rice,YUMMY :)ReplyDelete
I have heard a lot about fermented shrimp but yet to try it out. Love your fried rice. Its just so vibrant and mouthwatering. I could eat it out of the screen:-)ReplyDelete
your recipes are extremely with a change, love the flavors and combinations...ReplyDelete
Wow! This is definitely one of my favorite and of course sambal belacan is the paste that i love to add for nasi goreng and mee goreng. Very colorful rice !!!ReplyDelete
wow, looks so wonderful. Never used shrimp paste. But i guess it would be worth having one.ReplyDelete
Wow, that looks like my kinda dish.. I have never tasted shrimp paste, but wud love to try on some soon !ReplyDelete
good recipe for me to put my recent belacan purchase to good use. Not sure why I bought them since I hardly cook with belacan.ReplyDelete
Looks so tempting.. Drooling here..ReplyDelete
I know its taste...your homemade one will be super yum...ReplyDelete
