Nasi Goreng Pete

3 comments
Nasi goreng pete means fried rice with stinky beans (Parkia speciosa). Everytime I hear of this dish I have to remember the restaurant near my house in Jakarta that my family and I sometimes visited. It served the most delicious nasi goreng pete :). Unfortunately this restaurant is no longer there... I don't normally eat stinky beans, as, like its name, the beans have a rather unpleasant smell. However, these pete/petai beans can taste fantastic with strong-flavoured, spicy food, even though for a lot of people not used to the beans, pete is an acquired taste.



Since I had some stock of seafood, I stir-fried the fried rice with some white clams and shrimps. I also used some fish and shrimp-balls.
