Mamak Mee Goreng (Stir fried noodles)

Well guess what I made for dinner…it’s Mamak Mee Goreng…but then I had to improvise on my recipe as I am in Hyderabad and I couldn’t get some of the ingredients. But what I made is basically something that is simple and for anyone to prepare….it is yummy of course….so I am going to share my recipe here….for you to try it out…

Boil some eggs noodles….I used half a packet…for a person and maybe for 2 meals
In a pot…add water…and then a teaspoon of salt…and then some cooking oil…a few drops…so that the noodles doesn’t become sticky…
Boil the noodles for about 10 minutes…till you feel it is cooked…then strain it on a strainer…and then immerse it in cold water…room temperature actually…now this will stop the noodles from becoming soggy…
Now keep that aside…

Next the ingredients for the fried noodles:
1. Cut an onion wedge wise
2. Smash 5 pods of garlic…I mean 5 pieces…with your knife…the handle of the knife
3. 1 red tomatoe…cut into wedges…
4. Oil….about 3 table spoon..
5. Cabbage….3 leaves shredded
6. Half a carrot…cut very thin slices
7. Half a cucumber cut into thin slices
8. 1 green chilly….cut into slices
9. 2 spring onions cut into very tiny pieces
10. 1 egg beaten with a little salt
11. 250 grams of chicken fillet cut into thin lengthwise…
12. Light soya sauce to marinate the chicken ….like 2 teaspoon
13. Dark soya sauce….2 teaspoon
14. Chilly paste….1 teaspoon
15. 2 wedges of lime…to bring out the taste of the hot noodles
16. 1 teasppon of vinegar
17. Maggie chicken stock….1/2 a cube diluted with 4 tablespoon of boiling water

Now the cooking starts….
Pour oil into the wok….let it get heated up first…
Throw in the garlic….let it change it’s colour a bit….
Then throw in the chicken…..cook and stir fry for 5 minutes on high flame…..then put in the red chilly paste….till the smell comes out…and then put in the onions…cook for 2 minutes…and then add the tomatoes which was cut wedgewise….pour a little light soya sauce and the vinegar…and some thick soya sauce….keep stirring…and then put in the beaten egg….let it set for a couple of minutes..and then stir….after that add the shreded cabbage with the carrot…..stir fry for sometime(about 3 minutes)…then add in the chicken stock(1/2 a cube)….which was diluted with boiling water….don’t forget salt to taste….
Now add in the noodles and stir fry on low flame….till all the sauce is mixed with the noodles…cook for about 5 minutes….
Now squeeze some lemon juice….and then garnish with spring onions, cucumbers and green chilly….
