Spicy Fried Noodle (Mee Goreng Pedas)

As much as I like steak and wings, I cant have them everyday. Or even every other day. Once a week is fine and after that Id be craving for some good asian dishes. When I want something asian-y and spicy, there are 2 options for me. It will be either fried rice (nasi goreng) or fried noodle (mee goreng) and last night I opted for fried noodle.

A bag of mee pancit (you can get these from the asian supermarket) or other kind of noodle
Beef - thinly sliced
Chicken - thinly sliced
Frozen mixed veggies
4 eggs
1 onion, sliced
4 tbsp cooking oil

4 shallots
2 garlic
5-6 thai chili (or more if you like it really hot) ;)

1 tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tbsp sweet soy sauce
3 tbsp lime juice
salt & sugar to taste

1. Pound ingredients B in mortar and pestle and boil the noodle according to the packet. Set aside.

2. In a wok, heat oil on medium high and sauteed the pounded ingredients until fragrant.

3. Add chicken, meat and frozen veggies and stir. 1 min.

4. Break the eggs, stir. 1 min.

5. Add in the noodle and sliced onion, stir.

6. Add ingredients C and continue stirring. Taste and add any ingredients according to your liking.

I too like mee goreng pedas. But how do you keep the noise and the vibration down when you pound your onion, garlic and chillies?
And what is mee pancit?

Yatie_T said...

Your mee goreng nampak sedap betul. Boleh mintak sikit tak? Yeah.... I was wondering the same thing, what is mee pancit? Tumpang lalu yea, Farina.

Kak Zue, to keep the noise down .... put the mortar & pestle on folded dish towel. My mom used to make me do that every time we pounding chillies for sambal belacan.

so yummy!! i love this...

Maya said...

That is what I do :) I get bored with salads and bbq veeeery quickly. I need something spicy at least once a week. If I am lazy I just open up a packet of Indo Mee ( rendang flavour is the best)and I am good to go.

Zue & Yatie, i think mee pancit is mee kuning. its written as mee pancit on the plastic wrap itself. yup, i also put cloth or gloves under the mortar to reduce the noice. ;)

Shreya, im sure u would. u can also use shrimp/seafood instead of meat.

Maya, when im super lazy esp in the morning, id settle for maggi! maggi for breakfast just yummy! lol.

Anis Zainal-Pacleb said...

seriously babe, fried mee is one of those dishes i seldom cooked. d main reason is bcoz hubby is extremely good at it while moi here always 'ter'overcooked the fried mee resulting in fried mee kembang ok! matter how hard i tried to get it right still tak jadi...... uhuk...

Lore said...

Drooling over here!!! I also like fried noodles but I've never made something like this. It looks OH SO good

tigerfish said...

I'm drooling too! Going to have that soon :)

ICook4Fun said...

I am the same Farina. I must have my Asian dish fix after 2 or 3 days of western food. You mee goreng look soooooo good. Now you make me crave for it. I want to cook some today tapi tak ada mee kuning :(

Salt & Turmeric said...

dayang, kamek nang hardly have limo at home thts why guna lime juice. hehe.

Anis, i yg selalu hancur is my meehoon or keuw teoy. haha.

Lore, give this a try. if u dont have fresh thai chili, u can always opt for sambal oelek. ;)

Tigerfish, come here and il make u some. ;)

Gert, kalau takde mee kuning, buat mee hoon goreng pun best jugak kan?

Dhanggit said...

Salt & Turmeric said...

Daphne, haha. ur right tho, it was a pretty serious wok action. a pack of mee pancit can feed at least 4 adults.

I came over from Sri. Mee goreng - another dish that reminds me of home although I've yet to attempt it. Maybe it's time I did.

Salt & Turmeric said...

Petite fleur, thanks for visiting. do come back ok? i find making mee goreng is easier than meehoon goreng. THAT, i have yet to master. lol.
