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.

    Meanwhile, prep the pickle

    Mix 2 tbsp of white wine vinegar (or water, if you don't have it), 1 tbsp of sugar and the CHILLI PICKLE MIX in a bowl. Stir in the cucumber and keep aside.

One of our favourites, really easy to make and tested great. The spice level is just about perfect for the whole family not too hot for those who don't do spicy, but enough for those who do This could very easily replace a few Takeaways over the coming months, giving good tasting quick meals and saving us money too

Very nice, it was a bit of a faff with all pans required. Hopefully next time we will be more organised.

Dimitar - Nov 18, 2019

Incredible flavor! I'm a huge snob for fried rice dishes and this was just great. Get a bit more oil and heat it up well before throwing in the chicken so you get it nicely seared on one side for that extra bit of flavour
