I'm back to square one (what else is new ah?). Where to start with the intro? Killer-lah. But you can't blame me. Hundreds of recipes already chunked out, I can't get it up (oppsie), I mean, how can someone possibly be so-street smart in writing a catcha-gotcha intro continuously. Okay, okay-lah, quite smart I consider myself for coming this far. Growing up in a poor Indian family, then disaster struck in marriage, then, literally depending on education loan which I had to pay back with interest, and exhausting my savings for my more than hundred thousand education. Sense of biggest achievement though, I secured a stable career but the solid career is now shaking worst than a rocking chair due to rocking massively office politics. Sigh!
Aha! I manage to grab your attention with my sob story right? Done with a teary intro, come, lets fry (Mee Siam, Fried Prawn Mee, Cantonese Seafood Yee Mee & Lam Mee With Sambal Belacan) this Maggi Goreng Mamak. Into the noodles, I added tofu pok, green veg, scrambled eggs (omit if you're vegetarian) and other ingredients as listed below. Maggi Goreng Mamak is definitely a convenient one complete meal which obviously is the number grab at mamak stalls. Alright, story ended. Recipe time.
2 packets Maggi instant noodles (alternatively, yellow noodles) - blanch in hot water to soften.
5 tofu pok/or any tofu will do - cut into two pieces
4-5 stalks sawi/mustard green (or any leafy greens)
3 shallots - chopped
5 garlic - chopped
1/2 tbsp sweet soy sauce
1/2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp (more or less) curry powder
3 tbsp oil
Salt for taste (use sparingly/ only if needed)
Sliced red chillies (for garnishing)
Heat oil, break in eggs, scramble, remove and keep aside.
In the same oil. saute shallots and garlic.
