Indian Mee Goreng Recipe (Indian Fried Noodles)
Sour, spicy, sweet, and tangy come through in this Indian mee goreng recipe. I love the fried bean curd, potato, and squid. It is really delicious.
2 cloves garlic (chopped)
3 tablespoons of chili paste or to taste (recipe below)
1 lb of Yellow Noodles (rinsed)
3 pieces of dried bean curds (cut into pieces)
1 potato (boiled, peeled, and sliced)
4 squids (cleaned and cut into rings)
A handful of bean sprouts
Lettuce leaves (for garnishing)
1 lime (cut into wedges)
2 tablespoon of soy sauce
2 tablespoon of dark soy sauce or kecap manis
3 tablespoon of tomato ketchup
Sugar and salt to taste
10 dried red chilies
Add some cooking oil and then crack the eggs. Scramble the eggs and mix in with the noodles. Add in the beansprouts and quick stir for another 1 minute. Serve hot and garnish with chopped spring onions and sliced red chilies. Squeeze some lime juice over the noodles before eating.
Blend 10 dried red chilies in a food processor. Add some water and some oil to blend well. Heat the wok and “tumis” (stir fry) the paste until the oil separates from paste. Set aside.
This post has been updated with new photos. Indian mee goreng is the Malaysian version of fried yellow noodles. This “Indian” version is sold by Indian-Malaysian hawkers—a great street food noodle dish that is sure to stir up your appetite.
It’s been a busy week and I haven’t had much time to cook. However, food is food; you have to satiate your hunger regardless of how busy you are.
I wanted to prepare something not overly complicated yet different tonight so I cooked up this nice serving of Indian Mee Goreng, which is fried yellow noodles commonly found in Malaysia, and the word “Indian” basically means that they are prepared by Indian-Malaysian hawkers.
I have two other mee goreng recipes on Rasa Malaysia, which taste different as the recipe can be quite versatile. In any case, mee goreng is always made with yellow noodles, which are available at Asian or Chinese food stores.
Sour, spicy, sweet, and tangy come through in this Indian mee goreng recipe. I love the fried bean curd, potato, and squid (a substitute for baby octopus or cuttlefish). It is really delicious. Enjoy!
