This Indonesian version of fried rice has become an international dish. So much so, that in some Asian-themed restaurants in the Netherlands, Germany, and France, we found it on the menu as simply "Nasi Goreng". No translation needed.
What makes the Indonesian version so unique? It has its kick from ground chilli, shallot, and other aromatic flavors from the islands. We recommend the Nasi Goreng bumbu (seasonings):
Serve with fried shallots and shrimp crackers. Garnish with sliced tomato and cucumber to balance the spiciness.
