Spicy Nasi Goreng

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Mrs B

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.
