  • 1 egg
  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1 cup of rice
  • ½ cup of beans
  • 1 clove of garlic slightly crushed
  • 1 handful parsley chopped
  • Dry fried onions
  • Several small green bird’s-eye chilis chopped finely
  • ½ cup of kecap manis sweet soy sauce


  • Put the rice and 2 cups of water in a saucepan over high heat.
  • When it starts to boil add the garlic and the chicken.
  • Cook for 15-20 minutes; the chicken should be cooked through.
  • Make the omelette by breaking the egg, and mixing and cooking it thinly in vegetable oil.
  • Cut the omelette into strips. Shred the chicken, making sure it’s cooked right through. Some Balinese cooks will then fry the chicken as well.
  • Pour some sweet soy sauce into a small bowl and add the chopped chilis.
  • Distribute the ‘porridge’ into two deep bowls.
  • Add the shredded chicken, omelette, fried onion, beans, and some chopped parsley.
  • Add a little of the soy sauce to the bowl. Leave the bowl on the table for those who want some of the chilis to give the dish some real kick.
