Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Chinese sausages — If you can't find Chinese sausages, you can substitute with regular sausages like smoked sausage or chorizo for a different flavor profile.
  • Bok choy — Make sure to wash the bok choy thoroughly and separate the leaves from the stems before chopping. The stems may require slightly longer cooking time than the leaves.

Tips & Tricks

  • Use day-old cooked rice for the best texture in fried rice.
  • Make sure to have all the ingredients prepped and ready before starting the stir-frying process, as it cooks quickly.
  • For added flavor, you can add a dash of Chinese five-spice powder or white pepper to the dish.
  • Customize your Chinese-style Nasi Goreng by adding other ingredients like shrimp, chicken, or diced vegetables.
  • To achieve the classic "wok hei" flavor, cook the dish on high heat and continuously toss the ingredients in the wok.
