I bought a jar of Kokita brand Nasi Goreng seasoning at the Uwajimaya store in Seattle and it made the best fried rice I had ever eaten. After scraping the last bits from the side of the jar, I didn't want to make the hour drive just for more (although it was tempting), so I improvised based on the ingredients. If you can find it, I highly suggest buying the pre-made product as it makes preparation very simple. After eating Indonesian fried rice I haven't been able to go back to making the more popular Chinese version. What makes this different than Chinese rice is the prominence of chili rather than soy sauce. Shallots, smaller and milder than the onion, are a pleasant addition. I like to add a lot of chili and use fish sauce as the source of saltiness. Many recipes call for shrimp paste, I haven't tried it and think it's just fine without since the fish sauce adds a seafood taste. There are other posted recipes for this dish, but this one is simpler and the eggs can be cooked right in with the rice. This is also great as a vegetarian (even vegan) dish, just omit the shrimp and use fried tofu instead of egg and use soy instead of fish sauce. Warning: this may be spicy for those with more delicate palates.
