Celebration of Mother’s Day

29, Dec 2016 | Author: Embassy of Indonesia

In commemoration of Mother’s Day on December 22, Indonesian Embassy in Dhaka has held Nasi Goreng cooking Competition. Literally meaning “fried rice” in Indonesian, can refer simply to fried pre-cooked rice, a meal including stir fried rice in small amount of cooking oil or margarine, typically spiced with  kecap manis (sweet soy sauce), shallot, garlic, ground shrimp paste, tamarind and chilli and accompanied by other ingredients, particularly egg, chicken and prawns. Nasi goreng has been called the national dish of Indonesia, though there are many other contenders. It can be enjoyed in simple versions from a tin plate at a roadside food stall, eaten on porcelain in restaurants, or collected from the buffet tables of Jakarta dinner parties. In 2011 an online poll by 35,000 people held by CNN International chose Indonesian nasi goreng as the number two of their ‘World’s 50 Most Delicious Foods’ list after rendang.
