Coat medium skillet with cooking spray/olive oil and begin to heat on medium
Step 1: Prepare rice
Pour rice into a medium saucepan. Add measured water with a pinch of salt. Cover and bring to boil, reduce to low heat and simmer for 15-18 mins or until all water is absorbed. Remove the lid, fluff with a fork and spread out on sheet pan and allow to cool.
Step 2: Prepare other ingredients
Slice limes into wedges. Finely chop cilantro. Grate carrots. Discard root ends of green onion; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Slice cucumbers thinly and season with salt and pepper.
Step 3: Prepare base
Heat oil in a large skillet/pot over high heat. Add onion & garlic mixture stir for 10 seconds. Add nasi goring blend and cook for 30 seconds. Add chicken, cook for 5-7 minutes. Add ½ container of kecap manis and cook for a further 2-3 minutes or until chicken is mostly cooked through and a bit caramelized.
Step 4: Fry eggs
Increase heat on warming skillet to medium high. Crack eggs and fry on one side, “sunny side up” – until white are completely cooked, the yolk is set and the bottom of the eggs are getting crispy – about 3-4 minutes. If you prefer, flip the eggs over and cook for a further 30 seconds for a runny egg or 1 minute for a firmer egg. Take skillet and set aside, off the heat.
Step 5: Add rice to caramelize
Add remaining kecap manis. Cook, stirring constantly, for 2-4 minutes until sauce reduces and rice grains start to caramelize (key for flavor!). If rice is getting too dry, add splashes of water. Add carrot and cook for a further minute, mixing the carrot through the rice.
Step 6: To serve
Divide fried rice into bowls or plates. Top with egg, green onion and crispy shallots with the sliced cucumbers on the side.
