Vegan/Vegetarian Mee Goreng

Indian Mee Goreng is Malay for 'fried noodles' which incorporates a mix of Chinese, Indian, European and Malay flavours. It takes the yellow noodles from Chinese cuisine, spices commonly found in Indian food, fried with a sweetness for the Malay palate and coloured with tomato sauce, which is often associated with Western cuisine. Mee Goreng is available almost everywhere in Singapore, I love this recipe to the max and it is so easy to cook, done within 10 minutes literally.

Dietary: Vegan.
