Nasi goreng, the national dish of Indonesia, started out as a simple breakfast dish cooked to use up leftover rice. It’s now served in nearly every warung (family restaurant) across the country with a fried egg, sliced cucumber, chilli sambal and prawn crackers. It’s flavoured with a paste containing shallots, chilli, garlic and tamarind resulting in a delicious savoury dish full of umami - the 5th taste after salty, bitter, sour and sweet.

This fried rice was amazing! It was full of flavor and it felt like we just ordered takeout! The Chili Sambal added so much flavor to the dish and it was nice that it gave us 6 large helpings.
