VIDEO: the Indonesian cuisine – prepare your own Nasi Goreng

how to cook nasi goreng

Indonesia, with its 17.000 islands, offers thousands of unique experience and cuisine is not an exception. Probably, the most typical meal you’ll have an opportunity to try is Nasi Goreng or fried rice.

Not everybody can visit Indonesia immediately, so I decided to record video with a lovely couple from my favorite warung and show you how to make your own Nasi Goreng at home.

There are more types of Nasi Goreng, such as Nasi Goreng Telur (the simplest one), Nasi Goreng Ayam Telur (with chicken), Nasi Goreng Seafood or Nasi Goreng Vegetarian which I will teach you in video recipe.

When I told them about my idea to record this video, Ibu started to jump and clap her hands and was so happy. One of the reasons, why I love to eat street food are owners I can talk to and the more my language is improving, the more I enjoy it. I eat there almost everyday and small talk, while waiting for my meal, always makes me smile.
