Mee Rojak (Vegetarian)

Picture went bonkus/kaput. Don't ask me why? Already stressed up deciding what to cook for the day, then making this mee rojak vegetarian (homemade curry meecurry mee vegetarian) until picture slipped of my hands. No worries though everyone. Recipe is good as ever. How can I let you down? Never ever will I share a half past six recipe to cheat any of you. Never. Not in my vocabulary. Okay? Okay. What's mee rojak then? Gravy made with potato, peanuts and vegetable stock, assembled with yellow noodles, boiled egg, taugeh, tofu pok and mint leaves. My version lah as always. Never too I believe is copying because "you are born an original, don't die a copy"(John Mason to quote). For a non-veg version, add chicken/prawn stock and top with chicken meat, fish balls, fish cake or anything else you like or I have aplenty non-veg noodle dishes at "Laksam Noodle". 

For the gravy/sauce
1 tbsp dried chilli paste (blended/grounded dried chillies)
5 shallots - sliced thinly
Spices - 2 sticks of cinnamon and 1 star anise
30g (1/4 handful) roasted semi-crushed peanuts
1 (about 80g) potato - boiled, remove skin and mashed
1 piece assam keping (dried tamarind)
1 liter vegetable stock 
Salt to taste

Other Ingredients (estimates)
Yellow mee/noodles - blanched to soften
Boiled eggs - sliced into two
Fried flat brown tofu pieces - sliced
Bean Sprouts/taugeh - blanched
Mint leaves - for garnishing

When oil is heated, sauté shallots.
Add chilli paste and spices.
Fry till aromatic and oil splits. 
Pour stock, add tamarind and season with salt. 
Simmer till heated through. 
Add mashed potatoes and crushed peanuts. 
Stir and keep it simmering. 

To serve -
Assemble noodles, eggs, tofu, bean sprouts and mint leaves in a bowl.
Pour gravy over and serve immediately.
Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k"on every other social media please!!
