Malaysian Style Fried Rice (Nasi Goreng)

Malaysian Style Fried Rice (Nasi Goreng)

Nasi goreng is the Malay and Indonesian term for "fried rice". The main base for this dish is boiled rice - often cooked a few hours or the day before - and the Nasi Goreng paste, which contains ingredients like chilli, tamarind and shrimp. Along with the rice, vegetables and chicken are stir fried as well. It is served hot and often seasoned with kecap manis (caramelised sweet soya sauce). Many times called the national dish of Indonesia, Nasi Goreng hardly fails when hunger calls!
