Kitchen: Veggie Egg Noodle

Homemade Veggie Egg Noodle [2016:EO]

Noodle has always been my favorite food because it is quite light and filling at the same time. However, I must say that I am not really big fans of instant noodle. I don’t deny that I eat it sometimes because they taste very good but whenever I eat instant noodle, I often feel sick (throwing up). Therefore, sometimes I like to make my noodle bowl with vermicelli noodle or egg noodle as soup or stir fried. So today, I would like to share the recipe of Veggie Egg Noodle. It is very easy.

Ingredients:

  1. 300 gr of thin egg noodle
  2. 2 stem of green onion

  6. 4 shallot
  7. 3 cloves of garlic
  8. 1 tsp white paper
  9. 1 tsp salt
  10. 3 cloves of candle nut
  11. 1 tbs vegetable oil
  12. 2 tbs of sweet soy sauce
  13. 3 tbs of salted soy sauce
  14. 2 tbs of oyster sauce

Steps

  1. Place the thin egg noodle into a large bowl, pour boiling water over the noodle and let it sit for 6 minutes until the noodle are soft. Drain and pat it dry;
  2. As the noodle get cold, mix the noodle with sweet and salted soy sauce as well as oyster sauce until the noodle are coated entirely;
  3. Place shallot, garlic and candlenut into food processor; pulse it until it become paste;
  4. Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan and add the spiced paste into the pan for 2 minutes;

Notes: I Love Cooking

Preparation for 'Tumis Daun Pucuk Labu' [2013: Oktofani]

Preparation for ‘Tumis Daun Pucuk Labu’ [2013: Oktofani]

When it comes to food, I am actually quiet picky! I’d rather having a good homemade Indonesian food for lunch than having cheese burger and french fries from McDonald or steak with baked potato from any fancy good restaurant for dinner.

Since I moved to Jakarta, I always have a problem to find a good yet delicious homemade Indonesian food especially Javanese dish in Jakarta. Well, I would say that I can find hundred of them selling those homemade Indonesian food but most of them were tasteless. Whether the soto ayam is too oily, fried chicken is not well fried or tumis kangkung is too salty. It sucks.  Man… I need a real food! I need a healthy, clean yet delicious Indonesian food.

Therefore, as I have been taught how to cook  and any kind of recipes are available online, I start to use my cooking knowledge to cook my favorite Indonesian dish such as pepes ikan kembung, tumis kacang panjang, cah bayam, tempe goreng, pepes tahu, tumis daun singkong ikan teri, sayur asem, empal gepuk, tumis daging sapi or tumis bunga pepaya.

Sometimes I also make Western food such as broccoli pasta, salmon steak or beef steak. But it is very rarely.

I always make sure that I have complete source of nutrition on the table for my family. I always make a vegetable dish, meat or fish, rice and sambal in my dining table.  I love the idea of always having healthy food. It is just perfect for everybody! I even am in love with my own cooking! I love cooking!

Actually I like the idea of fancy dining in a good French, Italian or Japanese restaurant with a good bottle of wine. I like the culture of it where we can enjoy our meal, have fun and have a conversation over wine. But I am just not a big fans of Western food.

You know what they say? You can take the girl out of the village but you cannot take the village out of her. I love Indonesian food so much.
