Nasi Goreng

Nasi Goreng – Indonesian style fried rice
  • 1 cup instant rice
  • 2 Tbsp diced dried carrots
  • 1 Tbsp diced dried onion
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp dried garlic
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 packets soy sauce
  • 1 packet ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp oil or 1 packet

At home:

Pack the dry ingredients in a quart freezer bag. Pack the packets with the bag.

Bring 1 cup water to a near boil, add to the freezer bag. Stir well, seal tightly and put in a cozy for 10 minutes.

Heat oil in your pot over medium heat, add cooked rice mixture, soy sauce and ketchup. Stir fry until ingredients are blended, about 2 or 3 minutes. You may need to raise your pot and or lower the heat to avoid burning – keep an eye on it!

Serves 1.
