"Nasi goreng is basically fried rice for anyone living in a Southeast Asia island. There are so many different types that no one really knows them all (or maybe someone does, but that poor soul has way too much time on his hands). This is the most basic recipe that you can have that still makes something resembling nasi goreng. You can add other ingredients, such as peas, sweet red peppers, shallots, spinach, chicken, shrimp, beef, bean sprouts, or anything else you feel like adding, but you'll have to experiment on your own for those."

  1. Bring water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Pour in eggs. Cook, tilting the pan occasionally, until edges are nearly dry, about 3 minutes. Season with salt. Flip and continue cooking until eggs are set, about 2 minutes more. Flip eggs on to a cutting board; roll up like a crepe and slice into strips.
  3. Place onion, garlic, and red pepper in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Saute until fragrant, about 4 minutes. Add egg strips, 1 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce, and a pinch of salt. Saute until well combined, about 2 minutes.
  4. Mix the rice and remaining soy sauce into the egg mixture. Saute until rice is well coated in sauce, about 3 minutes. Mix in tomatoes. Serve on a plate with cucumbers as garnish.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If you want to add chicken, beef, shrimp, pork or whatever to this, then cook it ahead of time.
