This Indonesian Fried Rice is a breakfast dish made with leftover rice and a flavoring paste. Top it with a sunny-side-up fried egg, julienned tomato and cucumber.



The Protein:

  • 150gms Shrimp (or thinly sliced Chicken)
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 2-3 Garlic cloves, finely chopped

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet and add the protein. I have used shrimps here. Saute for a couple of minutes until cooked through. Remove and keep aside.
  2. To the same pan, add peanut oil and the remaining oil.
  3. Add onion and garlic and saute till brown.
  4. Add kecap manis and shrimp paste. Mix well. Cook for about a minute.
  5. Add rice and combine well. Also, add shrimps at this stage.
  6. Stir for a couple of minutes, till the rice and shrimps are evenly coated.
  7. Serve hot in two bowls, topped with a fried egg each and crispy fried shallots.


You may substitute kecap minis with 1/8 cup Light Soy Sauce and 1/8 cup Brown Sugar
