Nasi Goreng Istimewa

I had a asian potluck to attend and it was 50 miles up north, taking about 1 1/2 hours depending on the traffic. So, i could not make anything that might spilled over and caused a heart attack for my son in law. Nasi Goreng travelled well and i could cooked it way ahead, leave in the freezer and then reheat before serving.

Heat oil and fry the shallots until it is soft.
