Another comfort food recipe, actually fried rice are not really comfort food back in Indonesia, but this dishes are one of the dishes that I hold close to my heart, there is sentiment in this recipe, that’s the reason why this recipe are one of my comfort food . Actually this traditional fried rice are my mother recipe, and need just few ingredient to make it. One of the dishes that my whole family love and looking forward to enjoy it.


I remember when I was in junior high school, my mother often cook this dishes for me, just simple quick dishes for breakfast, yeahh you heard it right, usually we Indonesian enjoy this fried rice for breakfast with sunny side up egg. You always can improvised with this recipe, I am sharing the basic one, and there are a bunch recipe actually for Indonesian fried rice itself, will share another recipe later. Adding like bean sprout as vegetable, or adding soy sauce to add some edge, or adding carrot, green bean, or adding some sweet soy sauce, and the list I think could be endless.

In the other hand, fried rice kimchi are my first trial *wink, but I love it, it is spicy and tangy from the kimchi and easy to make it too, even though it was only me who ate it *haha due to spiciness.  I enjoy the fried rice with slice of creamy avocado and some arugula, uhh just yumm.
