Maggi mee goreng (15 minutes, 5 ingredients!)

Malaysians must be serious about their food. We put extra time and effort to cook what otherwise should be ‘instant’ noodles, and created the wildly popular Maggi goreng.

While sometimes I do wonder why I should order a plate of fried instant noodles, all thoughts disappear once it arrived on the table with a sunny-side-up on top. Personally, I love breaking the yolk and have it oozes out to drench the flavourful, fried noodles.

One day, I decided to make it at home and I went into a kitchen of a few mamak stalls to learn. Some stalls uses sambal, light soy sauce and curry powder and to enhance the taste. At home, I prefer to keep it less salty and add more fresh ingredients such as vegetables and tofu. I also make sure the ingredients are the bare necessary.

I swear this is the easiest ‘Maggi Mee’ goreng recipe you can find. You only need 5 essential ingredients: onions, tofu, vegetables, egg, and dark soy sauce.
