Hawker centres’ fried rice, or nasi goreng as it is usually called, is very popular with the young and old. Nasi goreng is filling and has a few components of taste and texture. This is a Singapore-style basic recipe and you can add on any other ingredients to it. I wish all Singaporeans and all those who love Singapore, a Happy National Day on 9th August 2016!
