This is Malaysian Mamak Style Mee Goreng aka Indian Muslim Style Fried Noodles. But, my version is non spicy because I'm cooking for my 5 year old son.
In Malaysia, we used to eat this in Mamak stall. Well, I'm a Mamak stall super fans! I like all the food served in Mamak stall like Roti Canai (aka Pratha), Roti Kertas, Mamak rojak, Maggi Goreng, Teh Tarik and many more...Not forget my favorite sirap limao.
|Sirap Limao that I made couple of days ago, just rose syrup, lime, ice and water. Slurp!!|
My version of Mee Mamak is pretty closed to the taste of the one in Mamak stall. But my version is a little healthier because I used sweet potato noodles instead of yellow noodles (with yellow food coloring). To cook Mee Mamak, the most important tool is the WOK. The heat that bring out the fragrant of the Mee Mamak, Chinese called this 'Wok Hei' . I'm glad that my cast iron skillet did its job pretty well that gives the 'Wok Hei'. Never use non stick pan to cook Mee Mamak, you may end up with Lo Mein instead of Mee Mamak. :)
