Indonesian Nasi Goreng

Indonesian Nasi Goreng

Meaning 'fried rice', nasi goreng is commonly found on the menu of many a household in Indonesia. A spicy dish, common ingredients include egg, chicken and prawns.

Nasi goreng originates from Chinese fried rice and is thought to have been passed on from Chinese traders to Indonesian locals during the 10th century. When Chinese diaspora later touched Indonesia, the emigrants brought with them their food traditions and methods of stir frying in woks, solidifying nasi goreng into the Indonesian consciousness.

It's a convenient dish that is often prepared for breakfast- using leftovers from last night's meal and with the addition of fresh vegetables and eggs.

Here are a couple of great recipes that some bloggers have come up with. For quick and easy cooking, simply substitute the sauces with AHG's Indonesian Nasi Goreng spice paste!
