All kinds of everything…

I know, I know… I’ve been blogging about all kinds of ways to fry all kinds of noodles and I’m sure many of you would be quite sick of the mere sight of it by now…

Well, this is going to be the last one, hopefully…and I only did it because Gratitude said that he fried noodles using the wet paste that he bought from the market so I would like to give it a try as well since I had half a packet of curry paste left in the freezer.

Well, the ingredients used included the following:
1 kg yellow noodles
Half a packet of instant curry paste (A1 Mountain Globe brand)
1 Bombay onion, sliced of chopped
1 stalk serai (lemon grass), bruised at the end
2 sprigs curry leaves
1 chili (or more), sliced
Some prawns
Two eggs
Some taugeh (bean sprouts)

I fried the onions in some oil till soft and added the serai and curry leaves after which, in went the curry paste. Stir well to mix it with the other ingredients and keep stirring till the fragrance comes out nice and strong. Then, I added the prawns and actually, I had a slice of tau kua (bean curd cake) so I cut it into small slices and threw that in as well. Lastly, I added the sliced chilies before putting in the noodles to fry.

After frying for quite a bit, I broke the eggs and added them to the noodles. Keep stirring until the eggs are cooked and then, put in the tau geh. I just stirred a bit to mix everything together nicely – there is no need to keep cooking for too long so that the tau geh would not be overcooked and would still be nice and crunchy.

Dish everything out and serve…

You may want to add some salt and msg, according to taste or even (light) soy sauce Β if you prefer it to be saltier but I felt it was good enough as it was and one would be able to sense and appreciate the exotic tastes of the many ingredients in it.

So, there you have it – another way to fry your noodles. As it appears, they’re certainly very versatile and can go well with all kinds of everything…but I have the feeling that cooked this way, it probably would be nicer with mihun. What do you all think?

  1. the one u fried tat nite was the best! kao kiam kao thee chin chia ho ciak… eat tat with keropok…

    That was ordinary fried noodles with soy sauce, egg and tau geh…except that I added prawns. Just can’t go wrong with prawns – sure will taste nice one – try throwing two or three into your instant noodles. Yummmmmmm!!!! Manis!

    1. I agree with WK.. what we get to taste is the best!!
      If got chance, next time u come over, i want to tumpang you the kampua noodles.. my mum and sister love them!! I will show them in my post.. one of these days! But unfortunately I didnt take the picture when my mum cook the masak hitam with chicken meat.. we walloped then only remember… :p

      I gave you so many 2, at first…then another five…all habis kah? Well, Elin will cook hers soon…so you can curi her photos – sure nice one! LOL!!! You wait for me to go over…sampai bila! Better plan another trip here – get Elin to come…maybe your mum would like to come too? πŸ˜‰

      1. hahahaa…yeah, u gave me so many-many… i gave a few away to my colleagues and my sister-in-law…I cannot eat so many-many… lol… but I still have two left for my own!

        Air Asia BIG SALE starts at midnight tonight. Come, come….log in and book your tickets for your next trip to Sibu!!! πŸ˜‰

  2. Good morning πŸ™‚ I’m a little hungry right now…so it can be my supper? or my superbly early breakfast. I see 3 prawns (wonder how many Shereen can spot?).

    Didn’t want to have too many in the photograph…. Later Shereen will comment, have to dig under the prawns to see the mee… πŸ˜‰

    1. Yoong,I saw only 2 prawns but can’t see too well as I’m reading this using my hand phone.Wait,let me continue my sleep first and I will check later and do the hidden treasures properly…Good morning!…will comment n give my verdict later.

      I had at least 20 or so prawns with the 1 kg of noodles – in the photo, you only see one serving i.e. one plate of the cooked stuff… πŸ˜‰

      1. Haaa…I saw 3 ekor prawns in one serving..which means you dah terlebih quota for your plate tu…lol!

        3 ekor a plate? So kesian… My ration, one serving must have at least 6… LOL!!! πŸ˜€

  3. Look at that plate of fried noodle at this hour…really makes my tummy drooling….Gosh, it looks like my fav Mee Jawa…Must be tasty…

    Mee Jawa? Our mee jawa here has some kind of pinkish red coloured gravy, not fried dry like this…

  4. looks good n tasty…..yum yum…when are you inviting me to try that tasty mee goreng of yours? hehehehehe

    Anytime… Wah, almost 2 a.m. not sleeping. You’re babysitting…or are you back in Sibu already? πŸ˜‰

    1. i am in sibu lah. i was doing my work at this hour. u posted ur story very early hehehhehe makes me hungry….lucky i was not craving for mee goreng huahhahahhaa

      Working? That late? Well, good…good!!! Money rolling in! LOL!!! πŸ˜€

  5. hahaha mr wee can open coffee shop ady!

    If I had known I could cook, I would not have become a teacher… Would be a millionaire by now… 😦

  6. That looks very delicious, like from the shop! Midnight drool…haha. Arthur, you are really good at frying noodles! Are you going to open a noodle shop? πŸ˜€

    If only I were 30-40 years younger, I certainly would consider it. Definitely better than many of the places in town…and yet they can run a thriving business. Tsk! Tsk! 😦

  7. i dont really fancy yellow noodles πŸ™‚ but the way of frying it makes it look so delicious!

    Latest: Innovative Chinese Buns

    Sibu yellow noodles not the same – not so alkaline…so it’s not so yellow and not as hard and does not have the offensive smell.

  8. hahahaha, believe me, this will never be the last one!! You’ll definitely come back to show us how to fry noodles in some other ways you find interesting.. Afterall, we all seek improvements right?? and that’s when you post something satisfying.. hehehehe~~

    LOL!!! We’ll wait and see… πŸ˜‰

  9. Arthur,
    Mee more sedap than bee hoon definitely. I’ve tried once with the dry mee kerinting tu and the taste not bad but I still think mee is the best. I was very inspired by your posting today ( heheheehe…tengok what you cooked only sure will get me running to the kitchen lar…sigh!!!…mana tak montel ) but was too lazy to drive to the nearby Asian supermarket to get the fresh yellow noodle and taugeh. So, what I did was cook basmathi rice with less water to get that drier rice and goreng nasi using your recipe as a guide. I used Japanese Curry paste instead of our local ones and a bit of dried blended chillie paste. I also added sliced onions, sliced chicken thigh fillet and not forgetting luncheon meat cut into cubes and fry till crispy ( a must! ). Then I added 2 eggs and some chopped chives…nice leh! Thank you for the inspiration πŸ™‚ Have a wonderful day today πŸ™‚

    Japanese curry paste? Nice or not! Lucy has a box in the kitchen for vegetable curry – dunno who gave to her. I wonder if it’s any good… Mee kerinting – then it would be even more like mee Maggi goreng, curry flavour. I thought this tasted a bit like that…so that was why I was not exactly thrilled by it. Rice kah? Reminds me of my school canteen last time – their fried rice. Everybody said so nice, all the students would rush to buy…so one day, I decided to give it a try and eyewwwwwww…..!!! It was plain fried rice with a sprinkling of curry powder. Hmmm…it certainly is so easy to please some people… 😦

    1. The Japanese curry nice when I goreng the nasi but have to add extra chilli paste.I bought extra hot but takda rasa pedas pun.The boys say very sedap and berpinggan they both eat.When big boss balik from work, he say the house smells so!

      Hah!!! Not like when I cooked with belacan in the UK – everyone walking past the house bermuntah-muntah…spitting all over the place! πŸ˜€

  10. No matter how many times you recount it, it still looks quite delicious all the same! that looks like mamak mee. *salivating now*

    Ya, that’s why I wasn’t too excited about it – too much like mee mamak…so very nice but nothing special really.

  11. Looks so damn good, more so since I haven’t had my brekkie yet 😦 (it has been raining cats and dogs this morning so I can’t go and buy food near the office)

    Well done, can buka kopitiam ady! πŸ˜‰
    Btw, I add in ketchup too to add a tangy taste. Before eating, I also squeeze a lime, the same as how mamaks always provide us with a slice. It makes a difference.

    Add ketchup? That would make it even more like mee mamak…and squeeze lime some more. Raining there? How nice! It has been very very hot here for a few days now… I hope it would rain soon.

  12. mi goreng tapau satu ! kekeke….we were lucky to get to eat this while at your house πŸ™‚

    This one’s different – not with soy sauce but with instant curry paste… I think I prefer soy sauce. This one, the taste brings to mind those packet instant noodles, curry flavour.

  13. “…….remind me of you” Can’t help but singing to this tune in my mind when I read the title of this post πŸ™‚
    Your version of mee goreng looks like one of those from the stalls. Looks tasty! Have you tried kway teow + mee goreng? It’s good!

    Dana! I think it won the Eurovision Song Contest a long long time ago. My goodness! Are you that old? I would imagine you to be somebody very young…not like me. πŸ˜‰ Oh dear! Imagine having to buy 1 kg of kway teow and 1 kg of mee to fry together and there are only two of us in the house… Not a good idea. 😦

    1. My goodness! You old?? Come on, they say 50s is the new 40s and 60s is the new 50s…… πŸ™‚ hehehe…I’m not revealing my age…at least not on your blog! πŸ™‚
      But really, fried kway teow + mee is good! Try it.

      I know. I’ve had that at some places a number of times…but I can’t remember exactly where now. Hmmmm…very secretive about your age, eh? Wink! Wink! LOL!!! πŸ˜€

  14. Nice fried noodles. Between mihun and noodles, I still prefer noodles and as I love anything that is noodles. Maybe you can try and let us know the verdict.

    Ya, me too! Generally I prefer noodles but sometimes, mihun may be better. Like Sarawak/Kuching laksa, definitely not nice with noodles. That’s why I don’t like the Lee Fah instant noodles – laksa flavour. I do wish they would use mihun instead – they used to have that a long time ago.

    1. If laksa I definitely prefer mihun but my son would love laksa noodles. To each one’s taste.

      You have laksa noodles in Kuching? Never seen that – as far as I know, all mihun.

      1. Yes, got. They use the yellow noodles or some use mee pok. Sibu don’t have kah?

        Only a handful of reasonably good laksa stalls here (not including the “Foochow laksa”) and they all use mihun.

  15. This is cool! I think that you start your own cooking show. You should share your knowledge in cooking to everyone. ^_^

    Muahahahahaha!!!! They would need extra-wide angle lens to be able to get the whole of me in the picture… πŸ˜€

  16. Once a while, I dont mind cooking and eating fried noodles, but still my favourite is mihun.

    I’m not particularly a mihun lover…but this recipe – I just feel that it may be better with mihun instead of mee.

  17. Meehoon would be nice, and will turn out a bit like mee siam, yah? Yum, then I’ll have a little bit of beef rendang or chicken curry or chilli squid or all three to go with my meehoon. Mmmm…when are you coming to Perth to cook for me??

    Nahhh!!! Nothing like the mee siam that Shereen cooked not long ago – the Singapore nyonya style. Simply out of this world!!! The last time I had that was in 1973…. I haven’t got down to trying to cook that myself though. So lazy… If only Shereen would cook for me the next time she comes to Sibu… Dream…dream…dream!!! 😦

    1. “I have a dream, a fantasy…” – we dream together, OK?? of Shereen’s nyonya noodles…

      Singapore nyonya-style mee siam (and it’s actually mihun)….. Slurpssss!!!!

    2. Arthur,
      I sure can cook for you when I go to Sibu to visit you again.Just siapkan the barang and the chom-poh ( cook ) can cook in less than half an hour.Lepas tu, we can resume shopping ikan masin at Sibu big market..muahahahaha

      Looking forward to the day… Yoong, you wanna join us? πŸ˜‰

      1. Yes, please – wah, so polite all of a sudden, muahahaa! I will help cut cut, chop chop, pound pound all the ingredients, then after makan, I wash up. Then to market, to market…., I help to carry all the ikan masin. I’ll do ‘anything’ to makan Shereen’s cooking. Oh, and also yours! Almost forgot to add that bit, muahahaaa!! Why, ahh, Shereen like ikan masin so much? Aphrodisiac kah?? Then I buy too, lah! πŸ˜‰

        Tulibu dibu….ken leeeeee! πŸ™‚

        Ya…if we go karaoke and you sing Ken Lee, then we will let you do all that!!! Muahahahahaha!!!! πŸ˜€

  18. Great recipe. M clearing my instant curry sauce so can restock on my next trip back. So this is something can cook and everyone will eat! Used to love Dana All kinds of everything loooonnnng time ago! LOL!

    Hahahahaha!!! Ya, you are that old!!! LOL!!! πŸ˜€ Btw, maybe you can try using mihun and see if it’s nice or not… I don’t have any more leftover curry paste in the freezer…

  19. omg. i havent eaten my dinner sep and now look at this? almost fainted. i don’t know when i can try your cooking!

    Everyone can fly, Faisal. Most welcome to come on over anytime… But of course, Penang, you will have to fly via LCCT (KL) or Kuching. Drop by the website – grab the cheap seats and see you in Sibu. Bring your friend(s), any friend of yours is a friend of mine – all welcome! πŸ˜‰

  20. I love the bit of color that pops out in this dish. I bet it tasted great.

    I haven’t had fried noodles in months. Perhaps I should make some soon? My daughter would be happy.

    Maybe I can try a vegetarian one one of these days… πŸ˜‰

  21. No.. I can never get bored with your home-cooked recipe. They all look so yummy that I wish I could have a taste of it 😦

    Come on over…and I’ll cook for you. Air Asia is having its BIG sale right now… Go grab a cheap ticket! πŸ˜‰

  22. Hi, your plate of mee goreng very tempting and appetizing. Look better than mamak mee goreng. πŸ™‚

    Have a nice day

    Definitely nicer when you cook your own at home – extra of all that you love and the best ingredients. πŸ˜‰
