Vegetarian Fried Noodles 家常炒面, Pasta Goreng, anyone?

One of my friends was complaining about the Mee Goreng she recently had, at Layang Layang Restaurant in the Bay Area, that tasted soy sauce and grease, nothing else.

We were too pampered with Singapore-/Malaysia-style Mee Goreng, that we can easily get authentic versions of, I guess.

For those of you not familiar, Mee Goreng means fried (Goreng) noodles (Mee)


It inspired me not to make authentic Mee Goreng but some homemade spicy fried noodles that is not solely soy sauce and grease. The rendition here uses pasta as the noodle-type (a mix of linguine and capellini (angel hair)) - equivalent to Chinese thick yellow noodles and bee hoon/rice vermicelli respectively. Pasta Goreng? :P

Some onions, green onion, garlic as aromatics, with a small tomato finely chopped as the base, with carrots and cabbage as the ingredients. The spice seasonings: curry powder, turmeric, a little soy sauce. A little jalapeno to spice it further. Steam/blanch some broccoli and/or cauliflower to serve it as a side with the fried noodles (linguine and angel hair used), and one fried egg sliced as garnish, topped with fried shallots and finely chopped cilantro.
