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 too!

Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Bring a medium pan, 2/3 filled with water to the boil. Add the rice, turn it down to medium and leave it to cook uncovered for 10 mins. (It should then be a little bit underdone.)

    Drain in a sieve and run cold water through it to cool it down, then keep it aside to dry out a bit.

    Meanwhile, do step 2.

  • 2.

    Mix 2 tbsp of white wine vinegar (or water), 1 tbsp of sugar and the Chilli Pickle Mix in a bowl. Add the cucumber slices and stir well, then keep aside.

  • 3.

    Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a wide, non-stick pan over medium-high heat and fry the shallots for 3 mins or until just golden and slightly crisp. Remove and put them on some kitchen paper.

    Add the green beans and the carrot and any other veg (if having) to the pan and let them cook for 3-5 mins.

    Add the Nasi Goreng Paste and stir-fry for 2 mins.

    Push the mixture to one side of the pan and crack the egg into the space. Let it set a little bit before stirring it thoroughly and breaking the yolk. Scramble it until it's almost done and then stir it through the vegetables.

  • 4.

    Tip the rice into the pan and stir it well into the mixture so it changes colour. Fry for 2 mins.

    Drizzle half of the Ketjap Manis over the rice and stir through.

  • 5.

    Serve the rice onto plates and drizzle the rest of the Ketjap Manis on top.

    Squeeze a lime over the rice (if using) and sprinkle the fried shallots over it.

    Toss the cucumber once more and then lift the slices out of the pickling liquid and serve alongside the rice.

Like others have said the ingredients do not match the recipe... I added a handful of quorn with the veg and it worked well.

Zoe - Jul 13, 2019

Amazing! I usually find rish dishes a bit boring but this is so tasty. Carrots took longer to cook than recipe instructions

Stephanie - Jul 08, 2019


Stephanie - Jun 22, 2019

The ingredients list doesn’t mention the quorn that is needed to make this dish

Matina - Jun 18, 2019

Yummy!! Kids loved it apart from the pickled cucumber but they just had plain cucumber instead.

Maria - Jun 04, 2019

Really tasty! Very flavourful. Will try it again soon. Totally worth it!!

Christienne - Jun 03, 2019

Cooking instructions didn’t match shopping list, found out midway through cooking when it said “add queen style chicken pieces” these were not on the list

Carolyn - May 31, 2019

Absolutely loved this but so very spicy

Sam - May 29, 2019

Loved it

Tom - May 21, 2019

I think you guys messed up the instructions. But it was great. More veg less rice next time

Linda - May 01, 2019

The recipe was different from the ingredient list. Green beans not in the recipe and quorn chicken not in the ingredients. This was an awkward discovery part way through cooking.

paulette - Apr 09, 2019

Just delicious - although it took more than 20 mins to prep and cook but thoroughly worth it!

Saba - Mar 30, 2019

Wow!!! This was absolutely beautiful!!! The brocolli added a lot and I added some spring onions and Quorn pieces too. Very versatile dish and delicious! The cucumbers are genius and I'd say benefits a lot from using vinegar!

Jessica - Jan 31, 2019

One of our favourites so far, I added different veggies and it was delicious

George - Jan 26, 2019

What are the quien pieces for? And the shopping list didn’t include green beans? Still pretty good though.

Katarzyna - Jan 25, 2019

Nice and easy but a bit boring
