Another noodle variation, i got the recipe from my Javanese cook book. Its not difficult to make this dish, very authentic taste, many traditional recipe i didn't try yet, so i will try to cook much more Indonesian food.
Now that my daughter eat the same food as her parents, its become easier for me, i don't have to cook different food for her, unless its spicy food, or something really special only for her.
Here is the recipe:
Mie goreng jawa (Javanese style fried noodle)
