About this recipe: This fried rice is like Nasi Goreng, Indonesian fried rice. This dish can be enjoyed by itself or as the basis of a larger meal. It is very easy to make.
I didn't have coriander and cumin in hand, so i omit that from the recipe, but added soy sauce about 2-3 tbsp, 2 tsp sambal or any kind of ground chili paste, and it tasted great! Always add fried egg to your nasi goreng. That is the authentic way of serving it. - 06 Aug 2012
Nasi Goreng is a staple in our home. My hubby's maternal side of the family are dutch...however they spent a good deal of time in Indonesia. I have learned many wonderful recipes that are Dutch/Indonesian. This particular one we make a little different. We use leftover (cold) rice from a previous meal and saute in bacon grease. We then add in chopped green onion, regular onion, spam cut up (or bacon if we have some cooked) and enough soy sauce to coat the rice nicely. You could very easily use any meat of your choosing. We also add in scrambled eggs. Very simple and a very good way to use up leftover rice. Just make sure your using COLD rice! Enjoy!! - 25 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a great recipe! I lived in Indonesia and its very authentic. I omitted the leeks but added frozen (cooked) green peas and a grated carrot for color and white pepper and salt to taste. Then served with cilantro sprinkled on top. Wonderful!! - 04 Apr 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
