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.

Absolutely delicious! One of those comfort dinners you can just eat while curled up on the sofa

Hannah - Dec 04, 2019

We used beef instead of chicken was a lovely meal and our 8 year old loved it

Andrea - Dec 02, 2019

I have ordered this twice now as we love it

It is amazing lovely taste and easy to make x

Kirsten - Dec 02, 2019

This was very popular in my house. My first recipe - definitely will do again

J - Nov 30, 2019

Fairly easy. Flexible recipe. Pickle mix is the sort of thing which would be better done properly. Rice could do with frying separate before mixing.

Sharon - Nov 29, 2019

Another tasty dish - easy to make.

Agnieszka - Nov 27, 2019

One of the favourites.

Emma - Nov 17, 2019

Quite a dryish, stoggy dish, my fault for over cooking noodles not paying attention. Tasted quite nice but not one of my favourites.

Polly - Nov 16, 2019

Lovely fusion of textures. My son ate every bit including the pickle.

Gemma - Nov 16, 2019

This was pretty tasteless which was a shame as it looked really good

Took a lot longer to cook and prepare than expected.

Alan - Nov 13, 2019

Best dish

Victoria - Nov 10, 2019

Ok. Perhaps more of the sauce would have made it tastier. I didn’t dislike it, but other dishes I have ordered such as the Goan Curry have been excellent!

Used ready in a bag basmati and was all ready to eat in 30 minutes! Had to add a few more bits as we are a family of 6 but it still tasted amazing!

Clare - Oct 24, 2019

Very tasty

Alison - Oct 24, 2019

Really enjoyed this. I liked the mixture of the sweetness and a tiny bit of heat. However, felt it lacked a bit or crunch/crispness. Would definitely have this again ????

Just a little bit dry but still very tasty

Cucumber pickle was not seen as complimentary to the dish

Will - Sep 30, 2019

Amazing. One of my favourites from here. Do it with chicken thighs and prawns for the ultimate version. Also, add extra salt and pepper
