      If you want a great rice dish (a meal in itself) this is it. Wonderful for a lucheon or for dinner. I have had Nasi Goreng many times, usually with ham etc but with this recipe you do not even miss it. The garnish is beautiful and like Sharon said it adds to the variety of flavors. Don't change a thing. This recipe is great just the way it is Thanks Sharon for a dish that will grace my table many times

      Thank you(ENDLESS times) for posting this marvellous recipe. I made this for lunch this afternoon and it was a HIT! I halved the recipe as there were just 4 of us to eat. I didn't have hot red pepper flakes and had to omit that. I used just 1/2 a tbsp. of soy sauce and 1/2 a tbsp. of 'light' brown sugar as I use light brown sugar most often in recipes that call for brown sugar(I have yet to find dark brown sugar in Oman). I used about 1 1/4 tsps. of salt for 1 cup of rice and the veggies, in toto. In the garnish, I had to leave out the cucumber and red peppers as those were not on hand. It was a great lunch! Thank U! This is a meal all by itself and a memorable one. THANKS A THOUSAND TIMES FOR THIS!

      I have to agree with everyone, this recipe is delicious! I used brown rice, and onion instead of shallots (I don't even know what a shallot looks like:^) LOVE all the different spices and flavors. Makes a wonderful, savory dish. I actually liked it without the garnishes, too. Thankyou for a yummy dish that's a little different from the rest!!!
