Easy 15 minute Nasi Goreng

Nasi Goreng is a staple dish in Indonesia and Malaysia. It can be eaten for breakfast lunch or dinner.

It’s a really tasty way to serve rice I ate it by the bucket load while over in Indonesia.

I came up with this version after I came back and wanted something really satisfying for dinner after a long day at work. It’s such an easy and fast dinner to make. 

You can either have it as a single dish or use it to accompany other Indonesian or Malaysian Dishes if you’re throwing a dinner party.

Traditionally it’s served with a fried egg and prawn crackers and drizzled with Kecap  Manis or Sambal.
