Kitchen Items Needed

Sheet pan 

Medium saucepan & lid for rice 

Large skillet/pot

Medium frying pan for fried eggs 

Cutting board & knife 

Box grater

Wooden spoon

12 oz water

cook along



Prepare rice: pour rice into a medium saucepan. Add measured water with a pinch of salt. Cover & bring to boil, reduce to low heat & simmer for 15-18 mins or until all water is absorbed.

Once rice is cooked, remove the lid, fluff with a fork & spread out on sheet pan & allow to cool (about 5 mins).

Remove leaves from stems, roughly chop cilantro;
Wash & dry all produce.

1Prepare Other Ingredients

Cut lime into wedges. Core & thinly slice bell pepper. Finely chop cilantro. Thinly slice cabbage. Slice mushrooms. Grate carrots. Discard root ends of green onion & thinly slice on an angle. 

2Prepare Veggie Base

In a large skillet add a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add onion & garlic mixture stir for 10 seconds. Add nasi goreng blend - use a little bit to start as it is spicy - & stir for 30 seconds. Add mushrooms, cabbage & peppers & cook for 5-7 minutes. Add ½ of kecap manis & cook for further 2-3 minutes or until all veggies are mostly cooked through & a bit caramelised.

3 Add Rice to & Sauce

Add rice, spreading evenly in pan with veggies. Add remaining kecap manis. Cook, stirring constantly, for 2-4 minutes until sauce reduces & rice grains start to caramelise (key for flavour!). Add carrot, cook for a further minute, mixing the carrot through the rice. 

4Fry Eggs

Add a drizzle of olive oil to a medium sized frying pan over a medium-high heat. Crack eggs & fry on one side, “sunny side up” – until whites are completely cooked, the yolk is set & the bottom of the eggs are getting crispy – about 2-3 minutes. If you prefer, flip the eggs over & cook for a further 30 seconds for a runny egg or 1 minute for a firmer egg. Remove from heat. 

5To Serve

Divide fried rice into bowls or plates. Top with egg, green onion & cilantro with the cucumber pickle, extra nasi goreng blend (for extra spice, if desired) & lime on the side.
