Mee Maggi Goreng

15 Nov

During the last leg of our Europe trip, Siti and I were really craving for something hot and spicy when we were in Paris. It didn’t help that the weather was cold and rainy. You can imagine how delighted we were when we bumped into Chef Razif, a Malay chef at the hotel we were staying in.

Chef Razif, bless his kind soul, thought that we were Malaysians until I explained that we are Singaporeans, just us two girls on a shopping trip. He was so helpful and even recommended shopping places and halal restaurants that serve briyani and naan.

We started talking about how he was relocated from Kuala Lumpur to open a new Baba Restaurant in Paris. And naturally, I thought of Mee Maggi Goreng and how nice to have it there and then. Guess what? Chef Razif offered to cook for us (pedas gilerrr version some more!) just that for our dinner that night! Isn’t he awesome?

Mee Maggi Goreng with Telur Pindang

We cannot express our gratitude enough to Chef Razif and we donated whatever Asian food that we had in our luggages and as a token of appreciation, we gave him a box of M&S shortbread cookies.

This recipe is nowhere near his and I can never recreate the taste. But I’d like to associate my very own version with the wonderful time that I had in Paris; the beautiful and kind people that we met along the way 🙂

Ingredients

  • 1 packet Maggi instant noodles (Curry Flavour; keep the seasoning)
  • 3 chilli padi, chopped finely
  • 1 onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped finely
  • 3 medium grey prawns, deshelled and leave the tail intact
  • 3 crab sticks, sliced in 3 pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon water (or more)

Directions

Boil the Maggi instant noodles just like how you would with pasta. When ready, blanch in cold water and set aside.

In a hot wok, stir-fry the onion, garlic and chilli padi with a tablespoon of oil. Add the prawns and crab sticks and allow to cook thoroughly. Feel free to add vegetables of your choice and cook till soft. Add the boiled noodles and give it a good stir.

Finally add seasoning, curry powder and water. Stir thoroughly and serve it hot with fried shallots.
