Basic Fried Rice

This recipe is a simple basic fried rice recipe (or Nasi Goreng as we call it). You can add all kinds of things like chicken, satay, shrimp, etc.

By making the bumbu in a foodprocessor it really becomes a piece of cake! And the best part is: it contains ingredients which you can always have in your pantry!


Fried Rice


400 gram (14 ounces) rice

For the bumbu:
1 onion
2 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon sambal ulek
1/2 teaspoon trassi
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon sugar (palm or cane)
1/2 tablespoon kecap manis

Vegetable oil


Cook the rice a few hours ahead so it has time to cool down.

In a foodprocessor mix the ingredients for the bumbu until very fine.

In a wok heat about 2 tablespoons of oil. Add the bumbu. Stir fry well. Add the sugar and kecap and stir again. Add the rice, stir fry well until the rice is slightly crisp.

Serve with sweet and sour cucumber, satay, pickled gherkins, shrimp crackers, or whatever tickles your fancy!
