Mie goreng (Indonesian noodles)

Mie goreng, also known as mee goreng or bakmi goreng, Indonesian stir-fry noodle dish. While travelling through Indonesia you can easily found it in any street market, sold by food vendors. I can’t travel right now so the only option to taste these noodles is to cook it myself. 

What I like the most about this dish is how flavorful and easy to make it is and the best part – you can play with different ingredients. 

This time for mie goreng I used chicken and eggs, but for the vegan version exclude them, also oyster sauce can be substituted with hoisin.

Nasi goreng or Indonesian fried rice

The best thing you can do with leftover rice – make fried rice :). This dish is always a savior for me when I have no idea what to cook and have some rice in my fridge (also, when I want to clean my fridge a little bit). I love how versatile it can be, you can play with ingredients and find the best flavors. 

Today’s dish – nasi goreng (it literally translates to fried rice). The key to this dish is a sauce and old rice.
