Malaysian Style Fried Mee Hoon (Rice Vermicelli)


Lost in space I was with the lost of nava-k.com. Helpless and almost tearing, I knew something must be done but must be done without getting worked-up. A couple of emails to Google and of course you get the programmed reply - "please check at blogger forum". I did. Honestly nothing much of a help and the more I read from other sites, the more paranoia the state of mind. All sorts of frightening sharing eg: lost domain will be auctioned, need to purchase a new domain, it will take two months before the matter is solved etc. etc until I pressed the panic button by shooting more mails to Google without realising its gonna be the weekend. Came Monday, I wrote again while keeping my fingers crossed.

Finally a call from Google at about 2am for verification but took a while to sort the technical aspects. Then on Wednesday afternoon, life returned with the return of nava-k. Okay. Lesson learned - ensure that particulars are updated if at all there's changes - eg: change of address, change of credit card or what ever crucial information. Tadaaa!!! Here I am again with a recipe without another long story. 

Try this mee hoon  when you want to keep it simple for breakfast, for brunch or even for  lunch. It is fried up with dried prawns, chillies, cabbage and garlic. 
Ingredients
2 slabs of mee hoon (soften with hot water and then in cold water)
3 tbsp dried shrimps/prawns - soaked and rinsed 
5 garlic - chopped
2 red chillies - sliced thinly (with or without the seeds)
2 sprigs coriander leaves - shredded/sliced
2 sprigs spring onion - shredded/sliced
1/4 cabbage - shredded
4 tbsp of oil
Salt for taste (use sparingly)
Lime wedges - as needed

Method
Heat oil and fry dried shrimps tills crispy and crunchy.
Add garlic and continue to fry for another 1 min.
Put in mee hoon and cabbage.
Stir and combine in.
Then add the rest of the ingredients expect lime. 
Stir again (another 1-2 mins) and remove from heat.
Serve with lime wedges.

  18. The hard thing in such situations is to stay calm and in your case that was pretty long. I'm sure you were counting hours. Glad that the situation is over now.
    I love noodles in any form but if something like this is on my plate I will enjoy every mouthful. Look at the greens...so refreshing with a stunning presentation!
