Nasi Goreng Ikan Bilis

15 Jan

Whenever we have remaining overnight rice, we would normally cook Fried Rice as lunch the following day. And it so happened that we had plentiful of rice from the sister’s BBQ weekend with her friends.

Since the folks went out for a wedding, I took this opportunity to cook Nasi Goreng Ikan Bilis as per my mom’s recipe. Ok, here’s the recipe for you folks to give it a shot aye 😉


  • 4 cups overnight rice
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 big onion, finely chopped
  • 5 green chilli, finely chopped
  • 10 cili padi, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup ikan bilis, soaked in water and finely chopped
  • 1 ikan bilis stock cube
  • 1/2 teaspoon light soya sauce
  • 1/2 cup mixed vegetables
  • 5 chicken franks, sliced into four
  • 5 crab sticks, sliced into three
  • 10 medium grey prawns, deshelled and leave the tail intact
  • 2 eggs
  • Fresh parsley
  • Fried shallots
  • Salt to taste


In a wok, heat some oil and add the garlic, onion, green chilli, cili padi and ikan bilis. Add the ikan bilis stock cube and stir-fry until aromatic or when the oil separates.

Add the chicken franks, crab sticks and prawns and mix well with the paste. Make a little well in the middle and fry the eggs. Quickly scramble the eggs and add the rice into the wok. Stir well with the paste. Add light soya sauce, a pinch of salt (to taste) and mixed vegetables into the rice and continue to stir-fry and make sure that they are well blended with the rice.

Dish out, top the nasi goreng with the fried shallots and fresh parsley. Serve immediately with keropok udang (prawn crackers)… yummy!
