Mee Berkuah (Noodles with Soup)

Voila! Yummy.
I've finally managed to find the time to start posting again. I've been quite a busy bee lately. Started working on this other magazine and like all new jobs, its always hectic in the beginning until you start getting into a routine. 

Mee Berkuah, is a dish that mum cooks when there is nothing else to cook. Mum calls it the 'lazy dish' cause its so so simple. As long as you have the are set. The cooking takes less than 5 minutes. Enjoy!

All the ingredients.
The Ingredients
• A packet of yellow noodles (mee kuning).
• 5 to 7 shallots (bawang kecil) sliced.
• 3 to 4 garlic (bawang putih) sliced.
• 1 chicken cube.
1/2 tablespoon of black pepper powder (serbuk lada hitam).
• 1 red chilli (lada merah) sliced diagonally.
• 1 green chilli (lada hijau) sliced diagonally.
• A bit of beef (daging) cut into small pieces.
• A bit of squid (sotong) cleaned and cut into small pieces.

• Some Chinese mustard green vegetables (sawi) cleaned. Separate the stems and the leaves and cut the stems into small pieces.

The Method

  1. Noodles with soup are my favourite. This looks like a mouth-watering recipe. Noodles combined with flavourful vegetables and spices will surely be an addition to the dinner menu.
