When I experienced my favourite Nasi Goreng dish on my stay at Mayaloka Villas I could not help but to ask the Chef the recipe for one of Indonesia’s most popular dishes.
Courtesy of the staff at Mayaloka putting up with me in their kitchen I bring you this to share-
1. Scramble the eggs in a wok then put aside for later.
2. To a hot wok, add the vegetable oil and sesame oil. Then add the garlic and ginger and cook for a few seconds. Add the meat and fry until cooked through.
3. Once the meat is cooked, add the frozen peas and stir-fry for a minute.
4. To these ingredients, add the rice, scrambled egg, soy sauce (dark and light) , kecap manis and salt and pepper to taste. Stir-fry until mixed and cooked through.
Serve with a fried egg on top for an authentic Indonesian experience.
And with a few Crackers…may I present to you my first ever Nasi Goreng attempt!
