Instant Fried Maggie

Welcome fellow cookers! This time I have tried my own new menu based on my taste experience. This recipe was invented through my estimation and assumption from a variety of taste of the similar menus, whereas the basic ingredients has been in my thought at first. This include the simple and yet instant to prepare dinner recipe, where I found a part of the ingredients has been in the package at first. The instant noodle, as we know, usually comes with its own taste and flavor pre-packed in its own packages. This could make the late-stayers easily prepare up his/her wonderful dinner with a big taste within a minute. No long written recipes, or even a long list of kitchen ingredients. Just require a sachet or two, provided inside the noodles' package, and you'll keep up the rest. Amazing and fascinating, I show you my home-made fried instant noodle, or in Malaysia, the folks just simply calls it 'Maggie Goreng'. You can have this at the Mamak stall, but this time you can try to pick up the art yourself at home! Note: This recipe has a bit of a threat of a Mamak taste, which is a bit spicy, but not too hot. Try!

Maggie Goreng Segera (Instant Fried Noodle)


1 packet Instant Noodles, usually Maggie, Mamee, or any other good brand.
2 segments of Garlic, chopped
1/2 Onion, chopped
2 cili padi (small size chillies), chopped
a chunk of leftover fish or chicken or any meat dish, washed and chopped (you may used the fresh boiled ones)
An egg
Soy sauce
Tomato or Chilli Sauce
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/2 tomato, cut into cubes.
about 1/3 cup vegetable oil for frying


1) Prepare the instant noodle, empty the noodle from the sachet and soak in a hot water for about 1-2 minutes or according to the instruction on the package.
2) While the noodle is soaked, prepare the oil in the frying wok or large pan. Heat the oil until gentle hot, around 1-2 minutes.
3) Place the onion, garlic and chillies in the pan, stirring slowly until the smells raise and the onion is lightly browned.
4) Take the flavor sachets from the noodle package, empty both or more(if the package has more than one or two, use all of them) into the pan, keep stirring until combined.
5) Put into 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of chilli or tomato sauce into the pan and keep stirring.
6) Place the drained soaked noodle into the pan, stirring and mix as quickly as possible to let all the sauces mix in with the noodle. Keep stirring until the sauce begin to dry.
7) Make a well in the centre, then break an egg on top of it and quickly stir all the mixture together until totally blended. Keep stirring to avoid the mixture dry too fast.
8) When the egg mixture has set, then it is ready. Transfer the fried noodle onto the plate and serve hot immediately. Garnish with a cubed tomato.
