Nasi Goreng Itik Istimewa, Special Malaysian Duck Fried Rice "Malaysian Monday 4"
Day 4 of my duck dinner - I was craving for rice after days without it and a Malaysian style fried rice seemed like a very good idea since Malaysian Monday was coming up next. Every family in Malaysia has a version of Nasi goreng (Malay and Indonesian for fried rice) and this is one that I know and love best. Like any style of fried rice, use whatever leftover ingredients you may find for the recipe but follow the seasonings used. It has been a real pain without my laptop but I had prepared a few scheduled posts ready for the next few days. I will spend a little time every night (when the computer is available) to reply and answer any question. Can't wait to be able to visit all my favourite blogs soon! Happy birthday to J if you are reading this, left you a message too.

recipe per serve
1 - 1.5 cups of cooked rice, cooled or leftover rice
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 duck breast* cubed
a handful of green beans, diced
1/2 a red capsicum, diced
a handful of bean sprouts, topped and tailed
1 spring onion, chopped
1 tbs of sweet soy (kecap manis)
1 tbs of light soy
1 tbs of oyster sauce
1.5 tbs of sambal tumis**
spring onion and chili julienne for garnish
fried egg to serve
*Pan fry duck skin side down for 2 minutes then another minute on the other side. Drain off fat and place in the preheated oven at 180C for a further 6 to 7 minutes. Rest before slicing.
**If you do not have sambal tumis - pound 2 garlic cloves, 1 shallot and 3 bird chillies and 1tsp of toasted shrimp paste into a fine paste.
My favourite bit is of course to mix the runny egg yoke into the fried rice.
