Try to use American white rice to prepare this well-known Indonesian speciality. Made with rice, chicken, fish or seafood and vegetables, the dish is quick and easy to make. Cook the rice according to the packet instructions, drain well and set aside. Heat a teaspoon of the oil in a large pan, pour in the beaten eggs and heat slowly until just set. Flip, brown lightly and slide out on to a plate. Cut into thin strips. Heat the rest of the oil and gently sauté the onion, chillies and garlic until fragrant. Add the chicken strips, prawns or shrimps and celery and stir-fry for a few minutes. Add the cooked rice, 30-45 ml (2-3 T) soy sauce and the omelette strips and stir-fry until heated through. Serve immediately, garnished with fresh coriander or parsley leaves. Serves 6.
