Mamak Mee

There are times when I have no idea what to cook eventhough there are so many recipes out there, I just turn out to my good ol noodles.  They are the simplest and easiest meal that can be prepared in a jiffy. Noodles can be done any way.  Hot, spicy, sour, sweet etc.  Today I just made mamak mee/malaysian indian noodles. It has a little spice from the chili sauce, sour from the tomatoes and ketchup and lime juice.


1 lb of yellow noodles or can be substituted with instant noodles1 piece of fried taufoo - cut into small pieces
1 red chili - cut
2 tomatoes - quartered
a small piece of fish cake - cut
15 shrimp - peel and devein
1 small bunch of mustard green (sawi)- wash and cut
a handful of beansprouts2 cloves of garlic - chopped
1 shallots - chopped
Juice of half lime


2 tbsp of chili sauce
2 tbsp of tomato ketchup
2 tsp of dark soy sauce
salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat up oil and fry garlic and shallots.
  • Add in fish cake, tofu, shrimps, cut chili and stir fry for 1 min.
  • Then add in noodles, mustard green, tomatoes and seasoning. Add more spice or ketchup if required.
  • Continue to fry until dry and lastly add in lemon juice.
  • Dish out and garnish with some cut chili and fried shallots, optional.
