Updated: Apr 15

Nasi Goreng is another name for fried rice. This recipe has a tasty sauce made up of sweet and salty soy sauces which give this dish its dark appearance. A combination of fresh stir fried vegetables are tossed with the flavoured cooked rice to make this tasty dish. Choose vegetables that are suitable for the stir fry method of cooking, such as Asian greens, green or purple cabbage, carrots of various colours, celery, snow peas, bean sprouts, broccoli.
