Noodle is one of my favourite foods. It is a very versatile food. It can be cooked in many ways, you can fry it or cook it with different kind of soups. Hokkien fried noodle, hokkien prawn noodle, mee goreng (malay fried noodle) and so forth are some of the popular noodles you could find in Malaysia.
Personally, I love fried noodle very much especially the one from my mom! It is an easy and simple recipe for home cooking. Today, I am sharing with you the recipe adapted from my mom. I call it the easy fried noodle. Except the main ingredient, yellow noodle, you may change it according to your preference. For me, I used bean sprouts, tomatoes, fried tofu puffs and prawns. You may use fish ball, fish cake, pork, fish, other vegetables and so forth.
