Extra tips and tricks to make your experience more flavorful! 

●  Toss in some shrimp or tofu

Throw in some cooked shrimp for an extra protein boost. If you want a plant-based option, tofu works equally well. Simply pan-fry them until golden, then add them to the noodle mixture. 

●  Add as many veggies as you want

Feel free to add any more vegetables that you enjoy. you can add bok choy, bell peppers, or corn to your ‘Mee Goreng’ to add richness and colour to your noodles. 

●  For an authentic experience, use a wok

Use your wok if you have one! The high edges of a wok enable greater tossing and guarantee that the sought-after smokey wok hei taste is added to the noodles. It provides an authentic touch to the meal. 

●  Garnish with fried shallots 

Top your Mee Goreng with fried shallots for an additional crunchy, flavorful touch. They’re commonly available in Asian grocery shops, or you may create your own by frying thinly sliced shallots until golden brown.

Side dishes for a luxurious dining experience!

Malaysian Mee Goreng is a tasty and filling dish, and there are a number of complementing dishes that may transform your dinner into a feast. The following meals complement Malaysian Mee Goreng:

●  Pickled vegetables (Achar)

Achar, a sour and spicy pickled vegetable dish, cuts through the richness of Mee Goreng. Achar’s crisp texture and strong taste can help balance out the meal.

●  Salad 

A simple cucumber salad dressed with rice vinegar, sugar, and soy sauce provides a cold and crisp contrast to the heat and richness of the Mee Goreng.

●  Fried rice 

A simple serving of egg fried rice may be an excellent addition. It adds carbs to the dish and absorbs the tasty sauce of Mee Goreng.

●  Salad with fresh fruits

A light and refreshing fruit salad may be a cool and delicious way to finish your dinner. Fruits contain natural sugars that might counteract the savoury and spicy flavours of Mee Goreng.

Plus, it’s a healthy choice that will satisfy your taste buds without adding extra calories.

How do I store Malaysian Mee Goreng?

After you’ve enjoyed your Malaysian Mee Goreng, refrigerate any leftovers in airtight containers.

Keep proteins separate and avoid storing all of it in one container. Freeze in meal-sized amounts.

Reheat on the stove, adding more water if necessary. For the best taste, consume within 2-3 days. 

Final note

Malaysian Mee Goreng has been a symbol of love and togetherness for my family. It is a dish we all enjoy on special occasions as well as in our everyday life.

I hope this recipe also brings you and your family happiness and comfort!

  • Let us now bring some earthy, creamy goodness. Add a cup of mushrooms. Any type will suffice—pick whichever one's your favourite! Allow them to simmer until soft and immersed in all the flavorful goodness.
  • Remember those boiled noodles that we saved? It is now their turn to shine. Toss them in the pan and let them join the deliciousness. Twist and swirl until every strand are coated with the delicious sauce and infused with the diversity of flavors.
  • Finally, place your Malaysian Mee Goreng on a platter and decorate with lime wedges. The zesty zing will elevate this meal to new heights. Squeeze some lime, fill your plate, and dig in.
