    1. Bring the rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed; 20 to 25 minutes. Spread onto a baking tray and refrigerate 2 hours until cold.
    2. Heat a large frypan or wok over medium heat. Spray with non-stick cooking spray. Pour in eggs and cook until they begin to set, lifting up the edges of the set eggs to allow the uncooked egg to contact the hot pan; about 1 minute. Flip omelette in one piece and cook until fully set; about 30 seconds. Slice omelette into 1cm strips.
    3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan or wok over high heat. Stir in the onion, leek, garlic and chilli. Cook stirring until onion is soft; 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the chicken, prawns, coriander and cumin; mixing well. Cook and stir for approximately 5 minutes.
    4. Mix in the cold rice, sweet soy sauce and omelette strips; cook until shrimp are bright pink and chicken is no longer pink in the centre; 3 to 5 minutes.

    I didn't have the kecap manis so just used normal soy and brown sugar. Also didn't have leek so used shallots. Worked out great.  -  25 Apr 2014


    Nasi Goreng is a staple in our home. My hubby's maternal side of the family are dutch...however they spent a good deal of time in Indonesia. I have learned many wonderful recipes that are Dutch/Indonesian. This particular one we make a little different. We use leftover (cold) rice from a previous meal and saute in bacon grease. We then add in chopped green onion, regular onion, spam cut up (or bacon if we have some cooked) and enough soy sauce to coat the rice nicely. You could very easily use any meat of your choosing. We also add in scrambled eggs. Very simple and a very good way to use up leftover rice. Just make sure your using COLD rice! Enjoy!!  -  25 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a great recipe! I lived in Indonesia and its very authentic. I omitted the leeks but added frozen (cooked) green peas and a grated carrot for color and white pepper and salt to taste. Then served with cilantro sprinkled on top. Wonderful!!  -  04 Apr 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
