Nasi Goreng is an Indonesian dish. It’s easy to do and the variations are endless. To date, there are three other vegetarian versions posted on Zaar; but I’ve checked and this one is different. The recipe is borrowed from the BBC’s Good Food magazine and posted for Zaar World Tour 2005.

  1. Place the rice in a wok, add 600ml water and bring to the boil, cover and cook over a very low heat for 15 minutes until the liquid has been absorbed; tip the rice into a shallow dish and leave to cool.
  2. While the rice is cooling, heat the wok then add the eggs and stir until scrambled; tip out into a bowl and set aside.
  3. Whizz the garlic, half the chilli and half the onion to a paste in a blender.
  4. Heat the oil in the wok and fry the paste for 1 minute; add the rest of the onion and chilli, plus the pepper and carrots and stir fry for 2 minutes; add the cold rice and stir fry for 3 minutes; stir in the soy sauce, spring onions and eggs and fry until piping hot.
  5. Season and stir in the coriander leaves; serve immediately.

I love this recipe. The only thing is for my husband and I this makes a lot more than 2 servings. It was enough for 7-8 plates full. Other than that, everything is exceptional. Thank you for the recipe. P.S. I like to make this with the Sesame Chicken Skillet recipe.
