This is a modified recipe from an excellent nasi goreng belacan that we make sometimes.

Eat with a nice gooey egg on top.

Cencalok jazz up the humble fried rice with its strong shrimp flavours.

Nasi Goreng Cencalok


  • Preparation
    10 minutes
  • Total
    4 cups cooked rice
    3-4 Tbs cencalok
    2 shallots + 3 cloves garlic (pounded)
    1 Tbs each chilli paste + light soy sauce + dark soy sauce
    6 chilli padi (sliced)
    1 cup mixed veggies
    1/2 cup prawns
    Salt and pepper to taste

Mix the rice with the cencalok in a bowl (this is important to make sure that the cencalok is distributed evenly within the rice).

Heat oil and fry shallots + garlic until fragrant. Add in paste + sauces. When that's all merry toss in everything else.

You don't need to fry too long as the rice would turn mushy so about 5 minutes should do.

Serve fried rice with chopped scallions, crispy shallots.
