Nasi Goreng Kampung (Malay fried rice) 马来炒饭

This fried rice really kampong style, got kangkung (water spinach), petai (stink beans), and ikan bilis ( anchovies), all are my favourite ! And I especially like the crunchy caramelized ikan bilis, so yum!

Hi Sonia,

This is sooo unfair. It's sooo delicious just because you add in the petai in the nasi goreng.

I never add petai in my nasi goreng kampung and I would like to try it for my next nasi goreng. Thank you for the brilliant idea! :)
