Nasi Goreng ~ Malaysian Fried Rice

Nasi Goreng literally means “Fried Rice” and is very popular rice dish in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. It is simple to cook , with easy found ingredients and is a complete meal by itself, with a combination of rice, vegetables, egg, chicken and prawn. When I tried to replicate this wonderful dish at home, I found nearly 15 different ways to make it ….. so I guess there is no one single recipe for Nasi Goreng. I chose this recipe as I could easily find the all the ingredients in Nepal. Also, this dish can be adapted to suit both  non-veg and veg diets. Enjoy :)  ~ Kamakshi
