FYI : My favorite 'Indian Mee Goreng' hawker cook made his Indian Mee Goreng with mutton, which is what 'goat meat' is commonly called in Malaysia. However [meatless] Indian Mee Goreng, made with dried squid [reconstituted] or fresh squid is the norm.



        To Prepare :

  • Slice mutton or lamb and marinate [20 mins] with tsp light soy sauce, tsp dark soy sauce, a pinch of sugar and  black pepper
  • Heat wok, preferably a cast iron wok to smoking hot, add 4 tbsp ghee or veg oil, add onions, stir-fry for a few seconds
  • Add marinated mutton or lamb and stir-fry briefly [medium-rare or medium], remove mutton, set aside for garish
  • Combine chili powder, turmeric powder, soy sauce and tomato ketchup with 1 tbsp water
  • Add sauce to wok, bring to a rapid boil, allow to thicken slightly
  • Add noodles, stir-fry to thoroughly coat noodles with sauce
  • Add bean sprouts, salt to taste, stir-fry
  • Add potatoes and fried bead curd, stir-fry
  • Push mee to sides of wok, add a little oil, pour in beaten egg, cover with mee and leave to set for about 1 min
  • Add lime juice and stir-fry noodles well until 'dry' and slightly charred
  • Dish onto individual serving plates
  • Garnish with the cooked mutton or lamb slices, chopped lettuce, fried shallots, sliced fresh red chilies, a limau kasturi half, or a wedge of kaffir or key lime [Note: the squeeze of lime is what brings the flavors together!] - and serve
