       4    Shallots or 1 small onion
       2    Red chillis or 1 tsp chilli
            -powder and 1 tsp paprika

   The name Nasi Goreng means simply 'fried rice', and it is really a
   collective description of an indefinite number of slightly differing
   dishes.  You can vary the trimmings and garnishes to suit your taste;
   but even the most elaborate Nasi Goreng is quick to make.  It is a
   particularly good luncheon dish. Boil the rice a good long time
   before you intend to fry it; you can fry freshly boiled rice, but the
   Nasi Goreng will be better if the boiled rice is allowed to cool. Two
   hours is a satisfactory interval. Leaving the rice to cool overnight,
   however, gives less good results-the rice has time to go dry and
   stale. An important point to note here is that rice for Nasi Goreng
   must be cooked with the least possible quantity of water; this
   prevents it from becoming too soft. For 1 cup of rice, use 1 cup of
   water. Assuming you have now got your cool, boiled rice, proceed like
   this: slice the shallots or onion, seed and slice the chilli (or
   pound the shallots and chilli together in a mortar). Heat the oil in
   a wok; it makes no difference, by the way, whether you use oil, fat,
   or butter. Saute the shallots and chilli for a minute or so, and
   season with salt, soya sauce, and tomato ketchup.  Put in all the
   rice, and stir it continuously until it is well heated:  this will
   take 5 to 8 minutes. Serve in a good large dish, generously garnished
   with sliced cucumber, tomatoes, fried onions, and Krupuk.  [Shrimp
