This is really good! Although it isn’t sweet, except for the dates, it’s like a savory dessert. That said, it goes very well with meats, poultry, fish or vegetarian entrees and is especially nice with Southeast Asian and Pacific Islands foods. Kids who aren’t put off by dates would really enjoy it. You could substitute raisins if you prefer.

Nasi goreng is the national dish of Indonesia, a country comprised of over 17,000 islands (6000 are inhabited), and where rice is a cultural celebration as much as a staple. This dish varies, depending upon the chef, and may contain many different ingredients, based on what’s in the pantry. The truly authentic dish should include shallots, chiles, kecap manis (sweet soy sauce), and a fried egg for each diner.
