The most interesting part about nasi goreng is that you can put anything in the recipe and you still can call the meal nasi goreng, as long as there is fried nasi in it. All we need to make nasi goreng is: rice, shallots, garlic and salt. And the rest is up to you. You can add sambal (chilli paste) or soy sauce in it. You can also include some veggies, egg, lamb or sausages in the meal.
The main reason why I love nasi goreng is because it's easy to cook. At home I usually cook nasi goreng when I realize that I have nothing in the kitchen but rice and eggs :-p . Just grind the shallots and garlic together with some chilli, saute it in a wok for a while and put the rice in it. Add some salt and soy sauce. Stir until they mixed up. Ready to serve with scrambled egg, tomato and cucumber slices. Dellliiicious!!
