Mee Jawa

Some have asked me for my famous Mee Jawa recipe(muahahaha... I'm such a vain pot!). So, I would like to share with you this delicious noodle recipe handed down by my arwah grandma (abah's side) to mak and now to me. Hope you'll love it as much as I do.

MEE JAWA

Ingredients:

3 onions (bawang besar) - blended
3 tbs blended chilli
30g dried prawn - blended
2 tbs salted soya beans (tauchu) - blended
2 tins of coconut milk ( santan from 2 biji kelapa)
2 mugs of water
1 packet of egg noodle (mee kuning)
cucumber
eggs
beansprouts
beancurd (tauhu)
potatoes
fried shallots (bawang goreng)
salt and sugar

Method:

1. Fry the onions and chilli till fragrant (pecah minyak).
2. Add the dried prawns and stir till well-mixed.
3. Then add the salted soya beans (tauchu) and still till well mixed.
4. When everything is well fried up (must yield a dark red color mix), pour in the coconut milk and water.
5. Don't forget to stir often as you don't want the coconut milk to curdle.
6. Once the gravy starts to boil, turn the heat to medium and simmer for about 10-15 minutes. It it's too thick, add more water. If it's too watery, simmer till it becomes quite thick.
7. Add salt and sugar to taste. It should taste salty and sweet all at once.
8. While the gravy is simmering, boil the eggs and potatoes, celur (what's celur in English?) the beansprouts, fry the beancurds and cut the cucumber into the size of match sticks. Cut the boiled eggs into wedges or slice it (which ever way you prefer, doesn't matter), dice the boiled potates and slice the friend beancurd.
9. To eat, pour the gravy over your noodle and garnish it with the eggs, potatoes, beansprouts, cucumber, beancurd and fried shallot.
10. Slurrrppppp all the way. Ahhhhhh... sungguh nikmat rasanye, hehehhe...

Happy cooking!

OMG... at last.. the secret is out... (yes... so is my air liur)

NONG : ape kata kita buat kat mesia pastu kita bukak kedai... kita kasi dia royalti 1%. ok tak ?

osman a.k.a. semey a.k.a michael

noresh said...

seme: oiii... 1% je royalti... cheitttt!!! that's not fair. at least 20% baru la berbaloi aku dedahkan rahsia mee jawa aku.

but then, will it still taste the same if either of you makes it? hehhehe... i seriously doubt it! (hihi... sungguh vain betul aku nih)

nie soalan agak tah ape2 sket.. sbb saya budak baru blaja.. banyak tatau... hehehe..

ape beza tauhu dan tauchu??

noresh said...

takpe dilla... tak tahu kena la tanya kan...

tauhu: buat from soya beans tapi dicompress and bentuk jadi 4 segi kaler putih. biasa org goreng and hiris jadik 4 segi utk makan ngan mee kari, mee rebus and including this mee jawa. in english panggil tofu or beancurd.

tauchu: pun buat from soya bean gak tapi dicampur with garam and ntah apa2 lagi sampai jadik kaler hitam. yg ni memang nampak sebutir2 soya bean tu. kalau org cina panggil black bean sauce. kalau in english panggil salted soya beans.

dua2 bhn ni boleh dapat kat kedai cina.
