Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Indonesian Veggie Nasi Goreng

Add the basmati rice and 175ml [350ml] cold water to a pot with a lid and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low and cook, covered, for 10-15 min or until all the water has absorbed and the rice is cooked

Once cooked, remove from the heat, remove the lid and leave the cooked rice to cool 

2 Indonesian Veggie Nasi Goreng

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Cut the red chilli[es] in half lengthways, de-seed (scrape the seeds out with a teaspoon) and chop finely

Pick the coriander leaves from their stalks and chop the stalks finely - reserve the leaves for garnish 


3 Indonesian Veggie Nasi Goreng

Grate the carrot[s] 

Shred the Chinese leaf finely 

Trim and slice the spring onions finely

Chop the green beans into bite-size pieces


4 Indonesian Veggie Nasi Goreng

Chop the roasted peanuts roughly 

Add the chilli jam to a small bowl with 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] cold water and give it a good mix up - this is your sweet chilli dressing 


5 Indonesian Veggie Nasi Goreng

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium heat 

Once hot, add the chopped coriander stems (keep the leaves for later!) garlicspring onion, green beans, ground turmeric and chilli (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) with a pinch of salt and cook for 3 min 

6 Indonesian Veggie Nasi Goreng

Add the cooked rice to the pan and cook for 2 min 

Add the shredded Chinese leaf and cook for a further 1 min only (you want to cook it quickly so it keeps a little crunch!)

Stir in the soy sauce and grated carrot - this is your vegetable fried rice 

Divide the vegetable fried rice among your serving plates and wipe your pan clean for the next step 

7 Indonesian Veggie Nasi Goreng

Return the pan to a medium heat with a drizzle of vegetable oil

Once the pan is hot, crack your eggs into the pan

Cover with a lid and cook for 3 min or until done to your liking

Tip: give your eggs a little shake before you crack for perfectly centred yolks!
