Kitchen Trotter - Soon to Launch in the UK

January 2016 will see Kitchen Trotter launch in the UK; with a different country featured each month in the Kitchen Trotter kit, you will have the opportunity to discover and try your hand at cuisines from all around the world in the comfort of your own kitchen.

1 Month, 1 Country, 1 Kit; with the aim to deliver the culinary world straight to your door.  Each month, Kitchen Trotter kits offer a culinary journey through a menu full of mystery, delicious products and authenticity.  Subscribers will learn how to cook the traditional recipes of a secret kept country.

Having received a box you can see from my picture everything was nicely packaged.  I love cooking different foods so I love this idea. This month the box focused on Indonesia.

The box contains a recipe booklet which has a shopping list of the other ingredients you will need to buy to create the recipes; for example chicken and vegetables.   I hadn't realised when I took this picture that there's also a little 3 minute hourglass timer so that measuring time is also covered!

Nasi Goreng - Indonesian Fried Rice

If you want a quick (and I mean quick) and easy snack, side dish or just feel the need to eat rice then this is for you. I'm a bit behind with my postings as I made this last week - I just can't seem to keep up with this blogging lark!
This dish is spicy but not really hot, I guess you just add more or less of the paste till it tastes how you want it to.
You will need some precooked long grain rice. Please see my posting on storing cooked rice.
As I was shopping in Tesco's , I spied with my little eye a jar of Nasi Goreng paste, so of course I had to buy it.
I made chicken satay to go with it, but the pictures are awful so your not getting to see them!
Now as I understand you can add more or less anything you fancy to Indonesian fried rice. Says Wikipedia that it is often made up of left overs. The addition of prawns would have been good but Mr B wont eat them.
I did the following:
Heat up your wok, add a little vegetable oil then stir fry one chicken breast fillet that has been cut into bite sized slices.
When it's almost cooked add some small diced red bell pepper and one or two spring onions sliced diagonally into small bits.
Now add 4 good tablespoons of Nasi Goreng paste and stir for a minute. Then add the precooked rice stirring all the time.
Please make sure the rice has been heated through and it piping hot.
In a separate pan fry an egg - or you could make an omelet before you begin, shred it and put to one side. I just fancied it would look good with a fried egg on top.
Put the rice into a bowl and put the egg on top.

Serve immediately.
