Mee Rebus

Hi all you gorgeous people!
Thank you once more for smashing over to "cook with nava-k". I'm so-berry-merry happy you never fail to check me in-and-out. What have I been up to? Oh-well, traffic, work, cook, weekends for laundering, changing bedsheet and pillow covers, and possibly, some gardening as well. How about that? I live life to the fullest right? That's life. Speaking about fullest, today, I am gonna fill you up with this Mee Rebus. Boiled noodles will be the direct pathetic translation, so, I'll tell you my Indian translation. No Joke.

Mee Rebus is crazily satisfying and awesomely delicious as one complete noodle dish. Yea-yea, the same story akin in Home Made Curry Mee, Prawn Mee, Mutton Mee Hoon Soup, Curry Chicken Noodles and Assam Laksa. Same boring sorry right? I know.  But I can't help. I can't think of any Indian story. Maybe I should watch more Tamil movies. That is that, I'm now curious to find out if you have dug into a bowl of mee rebus. Yes? No? No Idea? Don't know what I am talking about? I'll tell you. I'm not an avid-fan of mee rebus, but, here and there I've tasted. Some were good, some were so-so, others were really sweet. Maybe sugar is free in Malaysia, for this version, we shall kiss-bye to sugar because this mee rebus gravy is naturally sweetened and thickened with sweet potatoes. Then of course, we have to add other ingredients as listed below, this thick spicy gravy will be poured over yellow noodles assembled with fresh prawns, chillies, bean curd boiled egg, garnished with coriander leaves and fried shallots, and please squash in the calamansi lime for the tang prior to digging deep under. Okay bye!!
