Nasi Goreng Kampung (using the PHILIPS Pressure Cooker)

Everybody loves Nasi Goreng...... Nasi Goreng Kampung was my late dad's favorite and we always have it during breakfast. Its the simplest Nasi Goreng with just  a handful of ingredients but it is full of flavor!

At times, we would like to have Nasi Goreng Kampung without the calories. So, I started making my family's recipe of Nasi Goreng without the frying and the massive amount of oil using the PHILIPS Pressure Cooker and it tastes just as delicious. Because my mum loves the slightly oily texture, I added some olive oil right at the very end!
