Nasi Goreng

This Indonesian fried rice has three important aspects to get it right: 1) The best results happen with cold and dry rice. You could use frozen rice leftovers. 2) Kecap Manis, a sweet indonesian soy sauce. If you can't buy it, use soy sauce and syrup. 3) Extra Indonesian toppings and side dishes like a peanut sauce or fried egg.
