Nasi Goreng (Indonesian Fried Rice)


Make a quick but satisfying dinner with this recipe for nasi goreng, an Indonesian-inspired fried rice with egg ribbons and grape tomatoes.


  • 1 cup uncooked white rice
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • salt to taste
  • ½ cup onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce, divided, or to taste
  • 8 grape tomatoes, halved
  • 6 slices cucumber


  1. Bring water and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Pour in eggs. Cook, tilting the pan occasionally, until edges are nearly dry, about 3 minutes. Season with salt. Flip and continue cooking until eggs are set, about 2 minutes more. Flip eggs on to a cutting board; roll up like a crepe and slice into strips.
  3. Place onion, garlic, and red pepper in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Saute until fragrant, about 4 minutes. Add egg strips, 1 1/2 teaspoons soy sauce, and a pinch of salt. Saute until well combined, about 2 minutes.
  4. Mix the rice and remaining soy sauce into the egg mixture. Saute until rice is well coated in sauce, about 3 minutes. Mix in tomatoes. Serve on a plate with cucumbers as garnish.
