Indonesian Fried Rice (Nasi Goreng)


  • 1 cup (250 gm) rice, cooked and cooled
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 200 gm chicken cut into thin strips (skip for veg)
  • 1 egg beaten (skip for veg)
  • 2 eggs
  • 200 gm carrot, finely chopped
  • 200 gm of cabbage, finely chopped
  • 100 gm green beans, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp soya sauce
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp hot sauce (any spicy red chilli based sauce)
  • Few green parts of spring onion
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste


  • On high flame heat the oil.
    Add butter.
    Add finely chopped garlic and saute.
    Add chicken pieces.
    Let chicken cook.
    Once chicken has cooked, add beaten eggs.
    Let the eggs cook.
  • Add the cooked rice and stir gently.
    Add salt and black pepper.
    Take the soya sauce in a small bowl and add the sugar to it.
    Mix well.
    Add the soya sauce to the rice and mix well.
    Reduce flame slightly.
