Not typical in north American but the rest of the world especially in Asia and India this may be something that is eaten in the morning. I made this for breakfast and it just got all my blood flowing and ready for action Jackson. Nasi Goreng is an Indian dish that can be many combination of flavors in rice. This is my version and I think this balance of flavors is just beautiful.

  • Prep Time:
    10 min
  • Cook Time:
    5 min
  • Ready Time:
    15 min


2 servings


  • 1 ½ cups day old rice
  • 3 gloves of garlic
  • Large knob of fresh ginger
  • One large Holland pepper seeded
  • ¼ cup of raisins or currants
  • Hand full of fresh cilantro
  • Crushed peanuts or hazelnuts
  • Canola oil
  • One large spring onion chopped
  • One egg


  • 6 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 6 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • One clove of garlic crushed
  • Teaspoon grated ginger
  • Teaspoon sesame oil
  • Blend all together and check for flavor, you should be hit with the sweet first then it should roll into the salty


Combine the ginger, garlic, holland pepper and raisins in a food processor and pulse until you have a fine chop.

Now this is all going to happen quick so have everything ready to go. In a very hot pan add canola oil to coat the bottom and when it starts to smoke add the garlic, ginger pepper mix and make sure its evenly coated and let sit until we achieve something called “wok hay” this is when everything comes together and goes to another level because of the heat. We will start moving that mixture around right before it starts to brown.

Now once you can smell and see that the rawness is cooked out add about 1 ½ cups of rice and stir fry around until it is mixed nicely. Now add the sauce leaving a little behind, stir around… taste the rice, do you taste sweet then salty or does it need more sauce. Now why stirring add a fresh egg stirring as you add it to incorporated it into the rice. You should not see the egg anymore but it’s there and you will taste it in the dish. Now add some of the spring onion mix in and the rice should be fairly dry with all the sauce absorbed so it’s ready to plate.

Put into a bowl, garnish with some more spring onion, crushed nuts and fresh cilantro. I also drizzled a little chili sesame oil on top and that is it!

This should be a flavor explosion with the garlic and ginger permeating through your head. This was a perfect way to start to the day and if you are watching your carbs having this in the morning is the best as you will have the day to work it off.

Enjoy kids!
