Nasi Goreng - This recipe works best if you use rice made the night before and it is cold from the refrig. I always use jasmine rice. If you do not have 'kecap manis' you can use ketchup mixed with a little brown sugar. I also add chicken to mine and have used tofu. I simply saute the garlic and onion, add one chicken breast thinly sliced with the egg, then I add the veggies , chili's (always red) and season with some salt and white pepper. Once my veggies are cooked I add the pre-cooked rice and the sauces. I may cook for 5 minutes or so.

This is a soupy sauce-fest. Don't do it.

I came from Indonesia and nasi goreng is really common for people in Indonesia. I tried this recipe, very nice almost like my own recipe. For me, I'll add the chilli pepper with thai pepper. I like spicy and hot !!

During my visit to Jakarta fried rice was the main stay of my diet. This taste very close to that.

First of all, this is truly not the original authentic Indonesian fried rice. The taste is okay, I can eat it but not a favorite.

This recipe doesn't even look authentic. I'd suggest starting over with new ingredients.
