This is a traditional Balinese recipe for Nasi Goreng. We learned it from a cooking class in a warung in Lovina, Bali. This recipe serves 4 people.
As much as I find it nice and romantic to use a mortar, grinding with a mortar is physical work and takes longer. Feel free to use a blender, but add some dashes of water and oil. Cilantro is optional and not part of the Authentic recipe, but does not make the recipe less tasty in any way, unless you don't like cilantro. I recommend using a (coated) Wok. I use my own induction wok for larger quantities (6 persons or more). If your Wok is not coated, take extra care with the heat and always keep stirring.
