Nasi Goreng 6 Steps
In a frying pan over medium heat, add enough neutral oil to coat the pan. Once hot, add your protein and onions and fry until onions become fragrant (3 minutes).
Add your garlic, fresh ginger, sambal olek, coriander, cumin, carrots and gai lan and fry until meat is almost cooked.
Add the cabbage and fry for 3 more minutes.
Add rice and cook on medium to high heat until rice is hot and starts to slightly crisp up (be careful not to burn the rice).
Once rice is hot, turn off the heat and add some kecap manis and mix well to incorporate. Finish seasoning with salt and more kecap manis (to taste). The rice should first taste slightly sweet, then salty, then spicy.
Top with a fried egg. You can also make an omelette, cool it down, cut it up and toss it in at the end when you add the kecap manis.
