Indonesian Fried Noodle ( Mie Goreng Indonesia )
Recipe source : Adapted from Indochine Kitchen
Wow! This is really hot and spicy! For those not accustomed to hot and spicy food, you better reduce the amount of chillies and pepper for a milder flavour. The spice paste has a very distinct peppery flavour which taste really good, that is if you like spicy food with lots of pepper.
This noodle dish is meatless.
Ingredients For Spice Paste
2 cloves garlic
4 candle nuts, toasted
1/2 tsp whole peppercorns
Pound all the ingredients together using a mortar and pestle or use a spice grinder to mince them.
