First, let me speak my mind…
Next, let me speak the science…
- 1 pack of indomie (super pack)
- 2 fresh tomatoes (Medium size)
- 1 onion (Medium size)
- Cabbage (Half of a small size)
- Vegetable oil (1 tablespoon)
- 1 carrot (Big size)
- Green peas/beans (a hand full)
- 1 red pepper (Medium size)
- Grounded crayfish (2 tablespoon)
- empty the indomie noodles into an empty bowl, pour some hot water over it, and cover for 5 minutes. This will soften it.
- wash and chop the vegetables (tomatoes, pepper, onions, cabbage, green beans, carrot, etc) and set aside
- put chopped tomatoes, pepper, half of the onions into a pot with the oil, and place on the fire (start cooking on low heat). Stir and allow to fry for 2 minutes.
- add the grounded crayfish, (and optionally, half of the indomie spice) and half a cup of water. Stir. Cover and allow to boil for 2 minutes.
- strain the indomie noodles from the hot water and add to the pot, stir and cover. Allow for another 2 minutes.
- then, add the chopped carrot, green beans, cabbage, the (other remaining half of the) onions, and, optionally, the other half of the indomie spice. Cover for another 2 minutes to steam the vegetables. Be careful not to overcook your vegetables though.
- turn off heat and serve hot!
All in all, it takes me about 10 minutes to prepare this, and with just the right amount of vegetables it serves two people (depending on your stomach size o)!
Always have a major source of protein in your indomie noodles! If you don’t like crayfish, ditch it and add Sardine or Titus fish instead, and you’ll have a balanced yummy noodles! You can also add chicken, prawns, salmon, or eggs to your noodle.
Personally, I do not add extra salt to mine because like I said earlier, indomie noodle is already high in sodium; and, sometimes, I don’t even use all the ‘follow-come’ spice.
Again, if for any reason you’re staying away from the frying method, its even better!
