The mee goreng that I usually eat is cheap , easy to prepare , my taste buds love it and certainly unhealthy . Whenever I go to market I always give myself a good talking-to not to buy it . So far , I haven't had it for more than 2 weeks . Ha !
Mamak mee goreng is a Malaysian version of stir-fried yellow noodles , literally translated as Uncle's fried noodles . Mamak means uncle but it actually refers to the Indian Muslims who immigrated to Malaysia . This type of noodles is commonly found in hawker centre around Malaysia and Singapore .
This is Gordon Ramsay's version , it may not be as authentic as the one you can have at some Mamak stalls but it was certainly pretty delicious ! Actually , the taste kinda reminds me of my fave instant mee goreng lol
I've only made half of the recipe and regretted it *sigh* I should have done the whole kaboodle !
Don't be intimidated by the long list of ingredients , if you cook Asian food from time to time , I'm pretty sure most ingredients can be found in your kitchen . The actual cooking time is quiet fast , less than 15 minutes and you can have this fantastic and hearty one-pot ( or wok ) meal on your table !
