Mee Goreng

This is 'Mamak style Mee Goreng' - a popular style of fried noodles in Singapore and Malaysia. I had to use spaghetti instead of the yellow noodles, but it did the job!

1/2 pkt of spaghetti (break it in halves and boil)

Sambal paste:
2 chillis
1/2 onion
1/2 clove garlic
1 thumb sized piece of ginger
- Grind up in mincer

2 eggs
3 sprigs coriander chopped
1/2 cup beansprouts
3 tbs tomato sauce
1 tbs chilli sauce
1 tbs soya sauce

1. Heat oil and fry sambal paste.
2. Add beansprouts and fry until softened.
3. Add noodles and stir under high heat.
4. Add tomato sauce, chilli sauce and soya sauce.
5. Fry until dry- and then add eggs. Move noodles against the side of the wok and break eggs in the middle. Cook until scrambled. Then mix up with the rest of the noodles.
6. Add coriander. Cook for another 5 mins. Then remove and serve.

Note: Tastes very good with shrimps and meat. I just happened to make a vegetarian version.

Paula, thanks for the recipe. I have been wanting to make this myself but always failed with normal noodles (I guess the noodles they sell here are just not the same with those in Asia). Didn't know that spaghetti could do the trick and it tasted GREAT (and very simple cooking too - that's the most important thing for me cos I cook for the sake of eating LOL - not for the joy of cooking)
