Nasi Goreng

This mouthwatering vegetarian Nasi Goreng recipe is taken from the Quick After-Work cookbook.

Nasi Goreng


Vegetable oil 4 tsp

Garlic 1 clove, peeled and sliced

Root ginger 5cm (2in) piece, peeled and grated or thinly sliced

Thai chilli ½–1, deseeded and finely sliced

Tamarind paste 2 tsp

Ready cooked brown basmati rice 250g microwave pack

Fine green beans 50g (2oz), trimmed and cut into short lengths

Fresh coriander about 15g (½oz), stalks finely chopped, leaves roughly chopped

Soy sauce 1 tbsp

Freshly ground black pepper

Eggs 2

Ready-made crispy fried onions around 4 tbsp

Lime ½, cut into 2 wedges (optional)



Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a wok, add the garlic, ginger, chilli and tamarind and fry for 2 minutes. Cook the rice in the microwave.


Add the beans and coriander stalks to the wok and stir-fry for 1 minute. Carefully stir in the hot rice and soy sauce. Season to taste with black pepper. Remove from the heat and add most of the coriander leaves.


Heat the rest of the oil in a frying pan over a high heat until very hot. Add the eggs and fry for a few minutes until set, with frilly edges.


Divide the rice between two warmed bowls. Place an egg on top and garnish with the remaining coriander leaves and some crispy fried onions. Serve with lime wedges, if you like.
