MEE JAWA


Mee Jawa or Jawa Noodle is quite similar to mee rebus which is popular hawker food in Singapore and Malaysia but Mee Jawa does not use salted soya bean (taucheo) unlike  mee rebus.

Made with yellow noodles accompanied with thick, spicy and slightly sweet gravy. The gravy is thickened with mashed sweet potato, seasoned with curry powder and dried shrimps. This dish is garnished with a hard boiled egg, limes, red chili, fried tofu, fried onion and bean sprouts.

Tried  this version by Chef Hanieliza which produce perfect result. Here's the recipe:

INGREDIENTS

1 kg yellow mee scalded
1/2 kg. beef boiled and slice thinly (keep the stock)
300 gm bean sprout remove the tail
2 stalk scallion sliced
5 fresh red chili thinly sliced
3 pieces hard tofu cubed and fry
3 hard boiled eggs halved
3 local limes
fried onion for garnishing

GRAVY: 
1/2 kg sweet potato mashed
3 cloves garlic pounded
5 cloves shallots pounded
3 lemon grass blended
ginger pounded
galangal pounded
100 gm dried shrimps pounded
2 tbsp chili paste
3 tbsp meat curry powder
