Nasi Goreng



My sister and I were talking recently about an Indonesian restaurant in Toronto that closed down many years ago. I mentioned that I wanted to make Nasi Goreng one of these days so she sent me a link to this recipe. I ended up making it today for lunch since I had a few cups of leftover white rice in the fridge.

I didn't have tamarind so I subbed with a little orange juice, lemon juice and extra sugar. I threw in some chopped up leftover seitan from earlier in the week along with some peas and corn and cooked the tomato in it instead of using it as a garnish. And obviously I didn't use egg!

It was pretty good! I did add in extra soy sauce and some salt too. Next time though I'll only use half the curry called for and try and get tamarind paste.

Did you just call me a "he"????

Seriously, that rice looks scrumptious. Lemon juice is a good sub for tamarind.
