Nasi goreng is fried rice in English. It is kind of a comfort and fast food in Indonesia, like (perhaps) sausage and fries over here in Germany. There are many variations on how to make this dish. My dad usually made it with leftover food and I love how his fried rice never tasted the same (but always yummy). We rarely have food leftover here, but when we did, it is worthwhile to make it to a nasi goreng .
