When I lived in Holland several years ago, I often indulged in this spicy rice dish. This recipe, from an old newspaper cutting, is the most authentic I have found, and closely matches the wonderful taste sensation I experienced in Holland. More unusual ingredients, such as shrimp paste (also known variously as belacan, balachan, blachan and trassi) can be found in Asian speciality food stores. I must warn you that dried shrimp paste smells rather awful, but the taste in the finished dish is wonderfully aromatic, and essential to the authenticity of Indonesian cuisine. Nasi Goreng can be served as a main dish, as a component of a Dutch/Indonesian 'rijstafel' or as a side dish. It is commonly eaten by Indonesians for breakfast, which you can do also if there is any left from the previous day (doubtful!). Preparation time does not include cooking and cooling the rice.
