Nasi Goreng - meaning "rice, fried" is a a popular household and hawker food stall dish in Indonesia and Malaysia and is often eaten for breakfast. Great for using up leftover rice, this dish is characterised by its savoury paste and sweet, sticky soy sauce called Katjap (or Kecap) Manis. It's often topped with crispy shallots for texture and served with some tangy, pickled cucumbers alongside.
