Fried rice, or nasi goreng, is widely hailed as the king of all Indonesian rice recipes. They're fried piping hot in a big wok on the streets and at home, addictively seasoned with sweet kecap manis, shrimp-infused sambal, and plump bits of mutton, chicken and savory seafood. It's the ultimate one-bowl meal of Indonesia.
Beyond typical rice dishes, there's porridge, pancakes (yes, rice pancakes) and sticky rice too. When you're in need of comfort, boil some bubur - Indonesia's comforting porridge bowls packed with natural pumpkin sweetness. Or, pop in some savory sticky rice delights for an afternoon snack. And try the occasional rice pancake that you can soak up with a rich, spiced coconut curry.
