Simple Mee Goreng

by Edwan S. on Wed, September 18, 2013

This is a relaxed fry up you can make at home. It is a marriage between mamak mee goreng with the use of tofu and a Malay homestyle one with ikan bilis added for a bit of salty kick. Yum!

A cool fry-up idea

Serves 4 - 5 people

Add some extra crunch and texture to the noodles by tossing in about a cup of crushed, roasted peanuts to the blended mixture before cooking.

You can also adjust the spiciness of this dish by varying the amount of chili boh. For an extra oomph, add in a tablespoon of your favorite curry powder.
