Amazing Nasi Goreng (Indonesian Fried Rice)

Amazing Nasi Goreng (Indonesian Fried Rice)

Recipe video above. A traditional Indonesian fried rice recipe which is often served with a fried egg for a protein boost to make it a meal, but I usually serve it as a side dish. The magic ingredient in this is kecap manis, a sweet soy sauce which is available in large supermarkets and of course in Asian stores. Feel free to swap out the chicken for other proteins! Shrimp/prawns, tofu, beef and pork are all great alternatives.

Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 10 mins
Total time: 20 mins
Serves: 4 people

  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp kecap manis (sweet soy sauce)
  • 5 oz / 150g chicken breast , thinly sliced (or other protein)

  • 1.5 tbsp oil
  • 2 garlic cloves , finely chopped
  • 1 onion , small, diced
  • 3 cups cooked white rice , day old, cold 
  • 2 tbsp kecap manis (sweet soy sauce)
  • 1 tsp red chilli , finely chopped 
  • 2 tsp shrimp paste , optional 

  • 4 eggs , fried to taste
  • 1 green onion , sliced
  • Tomatos and cucumbers, cut into wedges/chunks
  • Fried shallots , store bought (optional) 
  • Lime wedges

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet or wok over high heat.
  2. Add chilli and garlic, stir for 10 seconds.
  3. Add onion, cook for 1 minute.
  4. Add chicken, cook until it mostly turns white, then add 1 tbsp kecap manis and cook for a further 1 minute or until chicken is mostly cooked through and a bit caramelised.
  5. Add rice, 2 tbsp kecap manis and shrimp paste, if using. Cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes until sauce reduces down and rice grains start to caramelise (key for flavour!).
  6. Serve, garnished with garnishes of choice (green onions, red chilli, fried shallots).

  1. Serve as a side for Asian main dishes or as part of a  large spread, Asian or not! 🙂 See in post for suggestions.
  2. Make it a meal - traditional Indonesian style!: Serve with a fried egg sunny side up (runny yolk!), tomato wedges and slices of cucumber on the side.
