Maggi Mee Goreng (easy version)

When it comes to instant noodles, I like mine either dried, or fried. Occasionally I'll go for the soup, that is, only occasionally.

This is what I often make using instant noodles - maggi mee goreng. It is very similar to mamak style cooking, except mine is simpler, in the sense of complexity and number of ingredients.

Ingredients: (for 2 person)

  • Instant noodles 2 packets.
  • Vege (can be beansprouts, sliced cabbage, sliced Nappa, sawi ... ). If you have tomatoes on hand you can add them in too.
  • 1 egg
  • curry powder 1 tbsp
  • sugar - a pinch
  • crisp shallots
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped.
  • half lemon, or 1 lime
  • oil
  • (optional) chilli powder
  1. Cook the instant noodles till soft. Drain, and keep it aside.
  2. Place wok over medium-high heat, lightly fry the chopped garlic.
  3. Add in the vege (if you're using bean sprouts, do not add in now, see step # 7), stir fry for 1-2 minute.
  4. Add in noodles. Continue frying.
  5. Add in curry powder, (chilli powder, if you like it spicier), a pinch of sugar, and half to entire packet of seasoning (that comes together with the instant noodle) to taste. You can add in a lil' bit of soy sauce if you want to.
  6. Push noodles to the edge of wok to create a 'well' in the middle of the pan. Crack in the egg. Stir them around to scramble them and when the egg start to set, combine with the noodles.
  7. Add in bean sprouts, fry on high heat for another 1-2 min.
  8. Squeesh in the lemon/lime juice to the noodles. Garnish the top with crisp shallots.
Tada ...

Yeah, perhaps you're right. I think I wouldn't cook this myself too if I'm still in KL.

we donch have maggie mee here.. so i rarely make mee goreng.. because i feel that if not maggie.. not as good.. ???
Also like you said.. if we were in asia..we won't be cooking this.. we would just go get some authentic mee goreng..! boy.. i miss home..!!

Hey mamabok, really? Frankly speaking, I'll use any brand of instant noodles because if you fry the noodles, they'll turn out to be the same. That's my 2 cents.
If I'm in M'sia, my fav brant would be Cintan, the original. But I'll settle with any brand for now ...

I love Indomie though especially with the kicap manis! The maggi goreng looks good.

thanks boo, yeah, I'm a fan of kicap manis too. I started using it when I was in Canada in replacement of Oyster sauce. The outcome is similar, if not better. It's really great for cooking!

Greenapple, I have a soft spot for instant noodles. I would buy a lot of them when I go out shopping... I love Indomie goreng best! It is the unbeatable so far...

Hi, enjoyed your Maggi Goreng recipe. I've got one very simple step to take it up a notch... Just add in a handfull of dried shrimp and dried anchovies when you're frying the garlic and stir fry till the shrimp and anchovied are crispy... Voila!!! Instant added texture.. The taste will be irresistable.
