Nasi goreng recipe
Nasi goreng recipe is a popular Indonesian fried rice dish that is easy to make at home. You can use any type of cooked white rice for this recipe. Leftover rice works well, as it is already cooked and just needs to be reheated. If you are starting with uncooked rice, be sure to cook it according to the package instructions before proceeding with the recipe.
You can use any type of vegetables you like in nasi goreng. The recipe I provided calls for onion, carrot, and peas, but you can add or substitute other vegetables such as bell peppers, mushrooms, or zucchini.
Kecap manis is a sweet soy sauce that is commonly used in Indonesian cooking. It can be found in the international aisle of most supermarkets, or at an Asian grocery store.

Here are a few cooking notes that may be helpful as you make nasi goreng at home.
- Use a wok or a large frying pan with high edges for the best results since it will give you more surface area to stir-fry the ingredients and enable the rice to cook evenly.
- Before adding the garlic and onion, make sure the oil in the wok or pan is hot. This will give the garlic a more mellow flavor and help prevent scorching.
- Make sure to thaw any frozen peas before putting them in the wok if you’re using them. To hasten the process, you can either run them under cold water or let them thaw at room temperature.
- Don’t be hesitant to season to your preference. You can increase the amount of kecap manis or brown sugar in your nasi goreng if you’d like it to be sweeter. You can add some diced chili peppers or a small amount of chili flakes to make it spicier if you choose.
