What is Nasi Goreng

This popular Indonesian dish is traditionally made with rice, chicken, and shrimp, but our version is completely vegetarian. We've substituted the chicken for mushrooms and the shrimp for tofu, making it a great option for Vegans as well.

The key to a good Veg Nasi Goreng is in the seasoning. We use a combination of Kecap Manis (Indonesian sweet soy sauce), shrimp paste, and chili pepper to give it a unique flavor that you won't find in any other fried rice recipe.



Rice -The rice used should be long-grain rice (Basmati). You may also use jasmine rice or any other long-grain type of rice. When making fried rice, it's important to use overnight rice. Leaving the rice in the fridge overnight makes it way easier to cook your fried rice. Rice will separate better & won't be mushy. If you are using freshly cooked rice, place it on a baking tray and refrigerate for as long as you can before starting to cook the Nasi Goreng.

Sambal - Sambal is a chili sauce or paste. We make our own sambal when cooking Nasi Goreng. Using a mortar & pestle, we pound the big red chilis together with garlic & shallots until we have a paste. It can be made using a blender as well.

Tomato paste Traditionally, Nasi Goreng is cooked with shrimp paste which adds umami flavor & red color to the dish. Tomato paste does exactly that & keeps the meal vegetarian.

Kecap Manis So what is Kecap Manis and where can you find this ingredient? Kecap Manis is a sweet soy sauce. Thicker than normal soy sauce, almost like syrup, this ingredient gives the rice a lovely brown color & adds umami to the dish. You can find Kecap Manis in Asian supermarkets, major supermarkets, or online. If you want to make your own Kecap Manis, check The Daring Gourmet blog, which has a lovely recipe.

Soy sauce Our recipe for Indonesian Fried Rice contains regular soy sauce too. It adds saltiness to the dish.

Egg Our vegetarian Nasi Goreng is served with a fried egg on the top. The egg needs to be cooked on high heat so the outer part goes crispy and golden. You can choose to completely cook the yolk or leave it a little bit runny. To make Vegan Nasi Goreng, skip the egg & add some stir-fried or scrambled tofu.

White pepper (optional) We love spices & when making stir-fries, white pepper is always a must at home.

Spring onions and more chillis Our Nasi Goreng is cooked with some spring onions to add some green to the dish and some extra finely sliced chillies. We love spicy food!

For serving We serve our Veggie Nasi Goreng with fresh cucumber, tomatoes, crispy shallots, & some Sambal Oelek, for extra spiciness
