Mee Goreng Mamak, Nadine style :P

To be honest, I used to think that I'm not gifted when it comes to cooking fried mee (Mee Goreng). I don't know why, but I always find it "flat"...taste-wise.


But now, not anymore...yippie!!


:D


Faaz was feverish last night and usually when my kids are unwell, I don't really have "the" mood to cook. Was thinking of something fast and easy to cook for dinner last night when I saw yellow mee in the fridge. Hmmm...mee. Mee sup or Mee goreng? I asked myself.



While preparing the soup for the Mee Sup as the menu for my kids, I started thinking of Mee Goreng Mamak *tetiba* :D so finally I separated half of the mee and started to prepare the ingredients for Mee Goreng Mamak. Instead of the normal, plain method that I usually use, I added two additional ingredients; meat curry powder and dark soy sauce. The end result?? Love it!! 


And when hubby came back from work for dinner last night, he loves it too. Alhamdulillah :) He said, "sebijik cam kedai mamak nie.." and had 2 full plates for himself. Yes! he approves it! Bleh la buat lagi...hihi :)



Recipe:

Ingredients:

Yellow Mee (Mee Kuning)
*Shallots (Bawang merah)
*Garlic (Bawang Putih)
*Ginger (Halia)
**Grind or tumbuk lumat into a paste - use 3 to 4 tbsp of the paste
2 tbsp Chilli paste (Cili kisar)
1 1/2 tbsp Meat Curry Powder (serbuk kari daging)
1 chicken cube
2 tbsp dark soy sauce
1 egg
A bit of water

2 square tofu (diced and fried)
Meat or chicken, sliced
*I did not use any seafood*
Fishcakes, sliced
Mustard green (sayur sawi), chopped
1 tomato, diced
fried shallots (bawang goreng
chopped scallion (daun bawang)


Method:


Heat the oil, saute the **paste until fragrant, add in the chili paste. Stir. Add in the curry powder and chicken cube. Stir. Add in the meat/chicken. Stir till the meat cooked. Add in the fishcakes and fried tofu, and add a bit of water if it's too dry. Let it simmer. Then, add in the mee and mustard green. Stir well. Add in the dark soy sauce and stir evenly. Lastly, add in the tomatoes and stir. Make a hole in the middle of the pan (in between the fried mee), and add in the egg. Covered the egg with the rest of the mee for about a minute before stir the mee evenly. 

(I did not add in salt because the saltiness of the chicken cube and the soy sauce are sufficient for me and my family :))


Served it with some fried shallots and chopped scallion. Add also some limes, if you like a bit of sour taste.


Enjoy! :)

The Little Sister's Wedding - Part I


Alhamdulillah, last 21st March 2015 my sister (Kak Ngah) has tied the knot with her high-school boyfriend of 11 years, Ahmad Azwan (finally...! :P). The solemnization (akad nikah) was held at Masjid Al-Khairiyah, Taman Sri Gombak which is the Mosque where I got married to my hubby 7 years ago :)



While on the way to the Mosque...glowing! :)


We arrived slightly late then scheduled so upon reaching the mosque, we headed straight to the Dewan Nikah where family and relatives from both sides were already presence.. :D The ceremony started shortly after and it was lead by Imam Ramli of Masjid Al-Khairiyah.



The hantaran from both sides...


Kak Ngah smiling nervously...LOL!



While me, on the other side was struggling to get the girls (twinnies and their cousin Areej) to sit still and be quiet..hehe :D





Alhamdulillah, at approximately 3.30pm my sister was officially a wifey! She was solemnized by our little brother; Hazwan. Am so proud of him that he managed to take up this big responsibility on his own... :)




The lafaz nikah...steady la Wan! :)



The first salam followed by exchanging rings, and the mas kahwin (bracelet + cash)



It was a simple, but meaningful ceremony. Our relatives from Singapore also presence during the ceremonly. After the solemnisation, all guest were served with refreshments (Curry Mee, Bihun Sup, Malay Kuehs, Cakes and hot drinks) at the Dewan Makan Masjid (Eating hall).



Here are some photos taken with my iPhone while entertaining the guest...



Twinnies with their Mak Ngah. Congrats Mak Ngah!


With the cousins from my Mom's side: Azhani, Hafizah and Alia




Me, matchy-matchy with my twinnies...
We went for pastel colors, mommy in Sara dress by Thepoplook in nude, while twinnies in Haifa dress by Thepoplook in nude. We wore matching pearl necklaces too!! :)



While hubby matchy-matchy with our son, Faaz. Both were Men in black! :)




Our incomplete family photo...with Faaz almost ran away. LOL! :P


That night, we had a gotong-royong at my Mom's place to prepare for my sister's reception on the following day. Making the bunga rampai and preparing the door gift were part of the tasks. The most excited and hardworking person that night was none other than Faaz. He wanted to be part of almost everything that we done that night...



Faaz isi telur pindang...


and Faaz helped Daddy & Mommy brought the boxes into the hall that night itself...


Rajin boy!! :)



The workers were just finishing the setup of the Pelamin and the hall when we arrived to unload the boxes of door gifts that night so we stayed longer to supervised the works. It was a tiring and exhausting day, but all were excited to welcome the next day...we can't wait to meet and mingle with the relatives and friends! :)



Will share the full outcome and the "bersanding" ceremony during the Reception Day in Part II, soon...stay tune! :)


Love,
