Mee Rojak (Vegetarian)

Vegetarians, this Mee Rojak Vegetarian is from me to you. In fact, even non-vegetarians I bet will love this Mee Rojak. Not a big deal anyway. If you still insist on meat eating, add some cooked shredded chicken, pork, beef or whatever you are gamed for (Laksam Kelantan). But by far, nevertheless, Mee Rojak is 100% purely and totally a vegetarian noodle dish (Corn Soup & Curry Mee Vegetarian). Pictures of Mee Rojak obviously as you have already noted is? But I can assure you that recipe is as good as Nava K. Okay? Okay. What's mee rojak then? Gravy made from potato, peanuts and vegetable stock, tipped over yellow noodles and boiled egg, taugeh, tofu pok and mint leaves assembled.  

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 (as needed)
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.
