Nasi Goreng

Nasi goreng, meaning “rice fried”, is an Indonesian classic and can be had morning, noon and night! Our version is made with Kicap Manis, a sweet & thick soy sauce that is boldly full of flavour.

 Tildalicious Tip: If you cannot get kicap manis then replace with a mix of 2 tbsp soy sauce and 1 tbsp soft brown sugar.

How to make Nasi Goreng

  1. Over a medium heat, add one tablespoon of oil to a large non-stick frying pan or wok. When hot add the beaten eggs and swirl the pan until you create a thin omelette. Set aside to cool and then cut into thin strips.

  2. In a bowl, combine the Kicap Manis, fish sauce and lime and set aside.

  3. When the rice is almost ready, over a medium heat, heat half the oil in a large wok or frying pan. When the pan is hot, add the chilli and garlic and fry for 30 seconds or until the garlic is just golden.

  4. Add the ginger, prawns and shredded chicken breast and stir fry for a further one minute.

  5. Add the green beans and spring onions and cook until the prawns turn pink and are cooked through.

  6. Add the rice to the pan and stir fry for 2 minutes until combined.

  7. Pour over the soy sauce mixture, add the sliced omelette and stir fry until all the ingredients are coated and piping hot. Serve and sprinkle with the remaining spring onions and chopped coriander.
