The name translates as 'fried rice' in Indonesian, and nasi goreng is a very satisfying, quick-to-prepare meal. We generally have it as a dinner, though for the brave it is traditionally eaten for breakfast using leftover rice from the previous night – it's Indonesia's bubble and squeak! Fried rice is commonly eaten throughout Asia, but it is the addition of wonder ingredient kecap manis (a sweet soy sauce) that gives nasi goreng its rich, distinctive taste.
