Indonesian Fried Rice

J and I officially booked our honeymoon!!!  (well...the plane tickets anyway)

Our plan is to fly to Singapore and enjoy some time between here and Bali.  Singapore is new to both of us and Bali (at least the specific island we'll be visiting) is familar to us both.  Tonight's supper was to bring back that feeling of eating Balinese food - or more precisely - eating rice at any time of day!  Tonight's supper was some lightly pan-fried fish with a side of fried rice.

Not that we really had to "get" ourselves excited for the trip, and general months ahead, but a little bit of food definitely can add to the excitement of it all!

Indonesian Fried Rice

One pot or rice cooker:  Cook 1 cup of rice (or even better: use leftover rice).

In a pan:
- Fry 2 eggs (scramble/fry).  Move to the side.

In that same pan:
- Add oil, 2 minced garlic cloves, 1/4 of an onion chopped.  Cook for 2 min.
- Add either a couple pieces of bacon or a slice of ham (chopped into small pieces), 1 tsp of crushed chillis (or fresh red chilli if you have it).  Cook for a few minutes.

Add your rice, cooked eggs, a diced scallion, a splash of fish sauce (in lieu of sweet soy sauce), and about a 1/2 tsp of bouillon powder of some kind (I used chicken).  Cook until everything is mixed in well together.

That's it!  This dish would often have another fried egg served on top of it, sliced tomatoes, or sometimes cucumbers.  As you can see, I opted for cucumbers.

Tomorrow night:  Singapore Noodles!
