Easy Maggi Mee Goreng – 15 min + 5 ingredients

Malaysians must be serious about their food. We put extra time and effort to cook what otherwise should be ‘instant’ noodles, and created the wildly popular Maggi goreng.

While sometimes I do wonder why I should order a plate of fried instant noodles, all thoughts disappear once it arrived on the table with a sunny-side-up on top. Personally, I love breaking the yolk and have it oozes out to drench the flavourful, fried noodles.

One day, I decided to make it at home and I went into a kitchen of a few mamak stalls to learn. Some stalls uses sambal, light soy sauce and curry powder and to enhance the taste. At home, I prefer to keep it less salty and add more fresh ingredients such as vegetables and tofu. I also make sure the ingredients are the bare necessary.

I swear this is the easiest ‘Maggi Mee’ goreng recipe you can find. You only need 5 essential ingredients: onions, tofu, vegetables, egg, and dark soy sauce.
