Perfect for a quick satisfying snack or meal, this spicy, Indonesian fried rice dish can be served with whatever garnishes you have on hand. Try cucumber, roasted peanuts, or chopped, fresh cilantro. You can buy plum sauce from most supermarkets these days.

Wonderful Nasi Goreng! Very different from the Nasi Gorengs I'm used to but definitely something I'd make again. I'd never dreamed of adding a banana, but it compliments the blend of vegetables and spices / condiments perfectly. Thanks for sharing :)
