Indonesian Style a Fried Rice Recipe

A simple Indonesian fried rice goes really well with just anything

Of all the three dishes featured on the plate, which of it looks more appealing to you? 

All three dishes looks appealing to me, the combinations of flavour too is quite balanced in my opinion. The sweetness from the satay, the spicy and tangy flavour from the acar, and the fragrant spices in the fried rice blends really well together.

Fried rice, is one simple food that anyone can cook up easily. There are many different varieties that are available. Each country and region even have their own version. To make a good fried rice, overnight rice is the crucial important ingredient in my opinion. The dryness of the overnight rice will provides you a grainy rather than a wet and mushy fried rice.

Right, of all the different types of fried rice, the Indonesian style fried rice is one of the fried rice that I cooked often during the summer and autumn as the “kangkung” and snake beans are seasonal vegetables here in NZ. It requires minimal preparations and because there’s no meat available in this fried rice, I will always paired it up with any form of meat as a side.

However, if you like, you can always use any other vegetables of your choice, and add in sliced chicken into the fried rice as well. Feel free to tweak it to your preference, there’s no specific rules to what you can or cannot add.
