Mee Goreng & Tumeric Cabbage

Last day to join the Nutriplus Cookbook “Think out of the shell” cookbook. ONE will be given away. Click here to find out more! Quick, don’t miss out the chance!

I’ve been cooking alot recently if you see my tweets or updates in facebook (or even the frequency of recipes here) I used to cook alot when I was in Sydney (actually only the first half of the year) cause very often, the portion’s really big and to finish up the entire plate alone, is quite ……. fattening lol… I lived in North Strathfield for a couple of months in Sydney and my favourite place was the Harris Farm Market. It was the same street where my apartment were and probably about 5 minutes walk (if not carrying any groceries) They have the freshest mushrooms and spinach leaves and… I used to buy lots of ricotta cheese to make pancakes and stuff .. It was really cheap ($ to $ ok)..

And the best thing was DFO (direct factory outlet) was probably 15 mins walk away. seriously. T__T

Well then after that, I moved to Eastwood.. I cooked lesser when I was there cause too much food around!! AH Hong Kong Dim Sum were my favs.. And this Char Chan Teng which serves HK / portuguese / macau food.. I always always always order the same thing, this portuguese chicken ( cant really remember now ) thingy which is creamy, milky and slightly spicy. I know.. *hence the extra pounds lol*

So well, up until this couple of weeks, I haven’t cooked much, and have probably lost the cooking flair *if I had any to start with Hahaha * I remember there was once I was testing something, and I ended up making something similar to KFC popcorn chicken. In which I think I couldn’t recall what I added in it. Anyway, I think the whole cooking mojo is back and I’m making lotsa Asian type of food. I used to cook alot of “western” dishes back then.. People change 😛

OKay, back to the recipes..

Mee Goreng
(serves 3-4)

1 packet yellow noodles, wash
10 shrimps – peeled
few pieces cucur udang (optional)
1 tomato – cut into small wedges
1/4 cabbage, shredded
A handful of bean sprouts (taugeh)
2 shallots – sliced thinly
2 cloves garlic – chopped
3 tbsp water


5 tbsp sambal (yeah I like it spicy)
2 tbsp dark soy sauce
3 tsp soy sauce
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Heat wok and add in about 3 tbsp of oil. Saute garlic and shallots until fragrant.
2. Add in shrimps, tomato, cabbage and sambal. Stir fry for a minute or so.
3. Add in noodles and the seasoning, stir well. Add in bean sprouts last, and water if needed. Cook and stir-fry for another 2-3 minutes, add salt and pepper to taste.
4. Serve warm

Stir Fry Cabbage with Tumeric
(serves 3-4)

1/2 cabbage, shredded
3 cloves garlic, sliced
2 tsp mustard seeds
3 tsp tumeric powder
2 sprig curry leaves
salt and pepper to taste

1. Heat wok and add in about 1 tbsp of oil. Saute garlic till fragrant.
2. Add in cabbage, mustard seeds and toss toss toss.
3. Add in tumeric powder and curry leaves. Add some water to moisten the cabbage. At this point, I usually just close the lid, lower the heat and let it cook for 2 mins. Add salt and pepper to taste.

I don’t know if you can see the plate of pappadums behind the cabbage.. To cook pappadums, it’s very easy. Spray cooking oil lightly on the pappadums, put them in the microwave and cook high heat for 15-20 seconds. There you have it !!

You have to spray some oil on the pappadums otherwise it will not be crispy and it will be soft after 5 minutes..

  1. A plate of that mee goreng sounds just good! I've been to Eastwood a couple of times when I was in Sydney visiting a friend. Yeah, so many Chinese food there.
