Background

This dish requires a bit more preparation than a normal plate of fried rice. “Nasi Goreng” simply means fried rice but Nasi Goreng USA is more than the normal fried rice which we are accustomed to. Some say, USA represents the ingredients that are used in the dish, udang (prawns), sotong (squid) and ayam (chicken). There is another explanation stating that USA actually refers to the characteristics of the dish which has tomatoes, fried egg, cucumber and sometimes sausages.

To me, it does not really matter because Nasi Goreng USA is so delicious and the name of this dish attracts attention! The fried rice and the accompanying meat dish are both tomato sauce-based with a hint of spiciness. I love how they complement each other perfectly.

If you already have some chilli paste at home, it would come in handy for this recipe. This version of fried rice is more popular than those normally sold in stalls in Malaysia. I hope you enjoy this scrumptious fried rice. You may check out how to make the chilli paste Cili Boh.

Malaysian Ketchup Fried Rice is also known as: Nasi Goreng U.S.A.
