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

Nasi goreng or fried rice is ever forever classic. At least for us, for us Malaysians. Classic in the sense that it is a convenient meal, one which you yearn for from time to time (Nasi Goreng Tom Yam/Tom Yam Fried Rice, Chinese Fried Rice, Nasi Goreng Tom Yam, Fish Ball Cabbage Fried Rice & Nasi Goreng Belacan Udang). Also, fried rice is akin an anything goes dish. Whatever, basically whatever ingredients you can grab in your kitchen and there you have. Add whatever you like, fried rice is a meal which can be prepared within minutes if you keep it lean and mean. Of course for wholesomeness, we should add lotsa vegetables and garlic, instead of being accustomed to meat, seafood or eggs. Additionally, fried rice is about not wasting cooked rice, please don't please, when it can be converted to a quick fix meal. Akin most of the fried rice dishes I have shared so far, this fried rice packs a terrific wallop too (Nasi Pudina/Mint Rice, Dhal Rice, Beriyani Rice & Ghee Almond Rice). Filling comfort food, tasty and appealing in a common way.  For those who like that little kick of chillies, pleasure into this fried rice alongside chillies in soy sauce. 

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 

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.
