Since Ai Ai had just recovered from feeling unwell just today, I’ve decided to make lunch for everyone with the limited items left at home. So, flipping through ‘Periplus Mini’ Singapore Favourite Cookbook (supposedly bought for Andrew), found this simple Mee Goreng recipe! Pat loves this dish too~
So off i went to cook Mee Goreng for today’s lunch. Though the Preparation & Cooking time is said to be 25 mins in total, but i took a whole hour. Forgive me as i’m still a newbie in cooking. :)
Ran out of potato at home, so i replaced it with small prawns and diced chicken. Instead of green chilli for garnishing, I’ve used red chilli. Did not use any spring onion and cucumber as there is none. This time i think, I’ve put lesser tomato ketchup than needed, that’s why the colour is much lighter than it’s supposed to be. In result, mine looks more like Chinese fried noodle than Indian fried noodle. But nevertheless, it taste not that bad (i suppose)
This is how mine look like!
