Nasi Goreng


In Holland this is eaten a lot, it originates from the West Indies. We always ate Nasi Goreng with pickled onions or gherkins, peanut sauce and sweet soy sauce. Now I add a whole lot of kimchi to achieve the spicy sour taste, though I still think it’s great with a good pickled onion!

In Holland this is served in a big soup bowl and eaten with a spoon peanut sauce and Atjar Tjampoer, and if you can find prawn chips ( kroepoek ) go ahead we just have it as is, even cold for lunch the next day it’s great. 


  • coconut oil or dripping for frying - Use a wok or fry pan

  • a small onion chopped into slices
