Nasi Goreng ala LiaDella

Indonesian Fried Rice

I can say Indonesian Fried Rice or Nasi Goreng is a popular dish in the world. There’s a lot of variety of  Nasi Goreng. You can add any meat or vegetables according to your taste. One of the my fav one is Nasi Goreng Teri (silver small anchovies) and Petai Beans.
