Fabulous Friday Flavour: Mee Goreng Kari (Curry Fried Noodles)

When the craving for a taste of home comes flooding in, it is hard not to give in. 

Besides, this has been a while. The food I’m referring to is what we’d call Maggi Goreng back in Singapore. They are usually sold in coffeeshops (don;t confuse yourselves with the “coffee shop” that are popular in the Netherlands) from an Indian stall. It is made using instant noodles, usually Maggi noodles and fried with various other condiments.

There’s no Maggi Noodles here, but there certainly ain’t any shortage of local instant noodles. Not the healthiest of meals , I know…but cravings should not and never be ignored.

So screw healthy, a woman just need to get her fix!

And this is how we do it ♫♪:

  12. Salt & Pepper to taste
  1. Heat up olive oil in a wok or deep pan
  2. Once it is hot enough, press garlic and saute.
  3. Immediately add the onions and green chillies. Fry till the onions appear translucent
  4. Add in the meat and make sure that it's cooked
  5. Then add in the curry powder. Stir well
  6. Add in oyster and soya sauce. Continue to stir and mix well
  7. Add vegetables and cook for a few minutes
  8. Add the noodles. Mix well till all the noodles are covered in the gravy
  9. Season with salt and pepper
  10. Make a well in the center and fry up the egg. Once the egg is almost cooked, stir together with the noodles to break it up
  11. Mix well. Serve!
  1. The oyster sauce can be substituted with black sauce. You can always top your noodles with a fried egg (sunny side up)

This Mee (maggi) Goreng dish always brings back fond memories of sharing a plate between 2 or 3 friends when we go on a short break as well as our regular after-hours silly chat sessions with a bunch of loony friends. It is the ideal food for supper, too and only 15 minutes to whip up.

There’s always small space for a bowl of Mee (Maggi) Goreng, even if it seems unhealthy

  1. I love the instant mee goreng. Ate that while I was growing up. Still love it!

    • It’s comfort food! Nothing like mee maggi goreng from mamak stall! 😀 I bet you’ll be craving for it as you dig down those childhood memories! 🙂

  2. I could do this, it’s easy, sounds yummy, and I’m not scratching my head reading your ingredients, lol!

    • Hahhahaha! This is another one of those that’s kindergarten for you, dear Jas! You can do it with eyes closed, I think! Wait..are you saying my ingredients are too complicated? I still have no idea what’s a kohlrabi!! 🙁 *muuuaccks*

    This is a personal fave too! I love eating this when in Singapore. I will try to do this but I’ll definitely change the noodles 😛

    • Right?! I miss them dearly..always good for supper! Yeah..it’s a good idea to change the noodles. I tried, but you know..it’s not the same. LOL.
