Indonesian Fried Rice

This fried rice dish makes an ideal supper on its own or as an accompaniment to another dish.
Shrimp paste, sometimes called dried shrimp paste, is a strong-smelling and flavoursome paste made from fermented shrimps that is used extensively in many oriental cuisines. Always use sparingly. It is available from most oriental food stores and Chinese supermarkets.
