Indonesia: Fried Rice with Vegetables and Eggs (from Bali)

This is a vegetarian "Fried Rice" version from Bali. At first glance, the green beans and tomatoes seemed an unlikely combination for an Indonesian dish. It still is at second and third glance. But we did like this fried rice version - HubbyGrouch loves anything rice-y with a fried egg on top.


Ingredients (4-6 servings):
6 cups cooked rice
1 small shallot, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
15 g fresh ginger, minced
cayenne pepper
4 scallions, thinly sliced
200 g green beans, cut into 3 cm pieces
200 g carrots, cut into thin, 4 cm long sticks
2 celery stalks, minced
250 g tomatoes, seeded and cut into 1 cm dice
vegetable oil
100 ml vegetable or chicken broth
2 tbsp oyster sauce
3 tbsp (light) soy sauce
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
40 g pine nuts (or candle nuts / kemir nuts), chopped and roasted
1-2 tbsp lime juice
4-6 eggs (1 per person), fried or boiled

(If you prefer your green beans soft, boil in a little lightly salted water for 10 minutes, drain.) In a large skillet, heat 1 tbsp oil over medium-high heat. Add rice and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes. Remove rice from skillet, set aside. Heat 1 tbsp oil to the skillet. Add shallots, garlic, and ginger and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add scallions, green beans, carrots, cayenne pepper to taste, and sellerie. Stir-fry for 3 minutes. Add broth and simmer for 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and simmer for 2 minutes. Add oyster sauce, soy sauce, salt, pepper, and turmeric. Then add nuts and lime juice. Carefully fold in rice. Adjust seasoning. Divide among bowls and top with a fried or boiled (and halved) egg. Garnish with cilantro if desired.
