If you’ve ever been to Indonesia, then you’ll probably have eaten some nasi goreng at some point, whether it be at breakfast, lunch or dinner (or all three in my case). There’s something about this modest rice and egg dish that just blew me away during my travels – and for no reason at all other than it’s so simple. It’s basically like your standard Chinese special fried rice we all love and know so well on those hangover Sundays, but it’s de-constructed and somehow much more beautiful. And the best part about it, is you can practically make it however you wish…as long as you master the basics, you can add, amend, strip back and make your own.
You can make this dish any way you like. If you want to remove the meat, add peas, sweetcorn, broccoli etc. - it will all work. I've often used Sunday's left over beef instead of prawns - it's a great dish to personalise to suit you.
