Finishing the easy nasi goreng -- 10 minutes

COOK the rice according to the package in the pan with water and salt. HEAT a wok on high heat until it starts to smoke and then add some oil. SAUTE the chopped onion and garlic for about a minute and then ADD chopped peppers and zucchini.

If you're using a red chili pepper, you can add it now. ADD the diced ham, spring onions and nasi goreng spice mix. STIR well for a few minutes. DRAIN the rice and add the rice to the wok.

STIR well and then ADD the ketjap manis until the nasi has a beautiful color, that would be about 4 tablespoons ketjap. SEASON with pepper and salt and enjoy!
