Nasi Goreng is an Indonesian fried rice and comes in many varieties. There is no single recipe of nasi goreng, as every fried rice dish with certain mixtures, additions, ingredients, and toppings could lead to another recipe of nasi goreng. Usually, in Indonesian households, the ingredients of nasi goreng to be prepared for daily breakfast are the leftovers of the previous day’s meals preserved in the refrigerator, with vegetables and eggs added. ¬†However, I find that the newly cooked rice tastes better and easier to cook than the previous day’s rice because it has no clumps and the texture is not dry.
