Turmeric root and kaempferia galanga fried rice

I made this Saturday morning and seeing the boys and hubby really really love its taste I decided to make it again the next day. I even made some bento for my boys, you can see it HERE. Too bad I did not had a chance to take any picture so I am using one of my bento pictures. But I'll update it when I make it again.

We call this fried rice a Nasi Goreng Kunyit, it's translated as turmeric fried rice.
My mom made this a lot when we were little, especially when one of us complain about having stomachache. Back then I did not know any details about good benefits of turmeric roots etc, I just know its good for you, and I love its taste too.

Turmeric and Kaempfria galanga fried rice

Ingredients :
3 cups cooked jasmine rice (preferably leftovers from the previous day)
If you use fresh cooked rice, let it cool completely then storage in the fridge for couple hours.
2 tbsp cooking oil

Grind into paste :
1 inch fresh turmeric root
1 inch fresh kampferia galanga
3 cloves of garlic
Salt and pepper (as desire)
(if you like spicy hot, you can add fresh Thai bird chili at this point)

Method :
Heat the cooking oil and when it's ready add the seasoning paste in and cook until fragrant. Add the cooked rice and stirring until all the rice becoming yellow. Keep stirring until done. Ready to serve with some omelet or sunny side egg with sliced of fresh cucumber.

I started making bento since my first son entering PreK. But I am still learning. My bento are very simple, but I am so glad you like it ^__^ Powered by Blogger.
