I was sitting in the Cafe Caprice in Camps Bay Cape town sinking a few beers, watching the sun go down with Sipu, who, at the drop of a hat drove over the mountain to chat with someone whom he had only ever met on line. It was great fun and he was an interesting companion. Our time together was all too short. We should have more beers and more chat. He was driving though.
This time next month we should have, been leaving Hong Kong and arriving in Singapore. Due to unforeseen circumstances, We had to cancel the ‘The Big” Far East tour.
Anyhow, this is not really what this blurb is all about. Years ago as a child living in Africa, my parents had a great Dutch friend who introduced us o a dish called Nasi Goreng, an Indonesian dish. I’m sure that many of you you who have visited the Far East will know what I’m talking about (Bravo?) If not Google it.
Haven’t eaten one for years. In Germany, you could get it in tins. I always ate mine with two crispy fried eggs. I have now discovered, that you can buy some excellent Nasi Goreng paste on line.
Here is my recipe:-
A few good dollops of the sauce.
Pre cooked rice.
Pre cooked shredded chicken
A two egg omelet thinly sliced.
All cooked in the Wok, following the instructions you can make it very quickly.
Give it a go.
Still wish I was eating it in Singapore though.
P.S.There are many variations to this dish.
