Martabak is one of Arabic’s (or maybe Indian’s) dish that is very famous here. We have it as street food. The original martabak (one that is sold) is made with special thin and very elastic layer. They make it by  turning and throwing the dough at the same time, like this man doing from 0:25

Well, this site won’t be named Cooking4Dummy if i’m doing that, right ? 😀 Instead, i use spring roll wrappers to substitute. Not dumpling wrappers though, cause they are a bit thicker. And for the seasoning, i use Gulai (red curry) instant seasoning. So, it is as easy as you can imagine 😉

Let’s do it!

Nasi goreng or fried rice is really a common food here in Indonesia. You can find it everywhere, as street food or 5-stars restaurant cuisine. And though it is one of my favorite dish, i found it too simple that i thought it is a trivial recipe. Not until i found out that Nasi Goreng is World’s 2nd most delicious food according to CNN. I’m like.. really ? Well, i mean.. it is REALLY really delicious for me.. but i’m so surprise to find out that is what others’ thought too 😀

So, in order to write this, i intentionally scaled up my ingredients. It’s hard, you know. Since i use to make this from scraps, meaning what is left and there. This is my best effort for it lol.

Oatmeal Chicken Pan Fried (Clean Eat)

I’m in the middle of “Clean Eat” moment. I won’t call it a diet, i just try to have a cleaner (healthier) choice of food. You know, double the greens and fruits, less red meat, less carbo (specially complex ones). Hiks.. the last one is the hardest for me, since.. i L.O.V.E fried foods 😦 😦 😦

Well, eating cleaner doesn’t have to sacrifice the flavor. So i try to “trick” it, with this dish. Hopefully, it won’t ruin the diet (oops, finally i called it “diet” LOL ). If it does, well.. it’s worth the flavor 😉 Anyway, the marinate recipe is my late Pa’s recipe. Trust me. It is the best!!

[Saya lagi “Makan Bersih”. Bukan diet sih, cuma berusaha makan lebih bersih/sehat aja: porsi sayur dan buah dobel, kurangi daging merah, kurangi karbo (apalagi yg kompleks). Hiks.. yg terakhir yg paling berat. Saya ini cintaaaaa gorengan 😦 :(:( Tapi kaan, makan bersih tidak harus ngorbankan rasa. Jadi saya coba untuk “nipu” dengan masakan ini. Semoga ga ngerusak diet (oops, akhirnya bilang diet juga LOL) Kalau pun iya, well.. setimpal sama rasanya sih 😉 Anyway, lumurannya adalah resep almarhum papaku. Percaya deh. THE BEST !!]

Here’s the recipe! [Ini resepnya]
