A recipe for simple, village-style fried yellow noodles that’s delicious and takes less than 30 minutes in total. No meat, no eggs, no dairy, and full of vegetables.


  • 300g fresh yellow noodles
  • 4 shallots
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 bird’s eye chillies
  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ tsp salt 
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 30 ml water
  • 50g beansprouts
  • 100g mustard leaves

Mie Goreng ingredients


  1. Soak the noodles in room-temperature water for 10 minutes, to soften them and remove some of the starch. Strain and set aside.
  2. Blend or pound coarsely the: shallots, garlic, and bird’s eye chillies.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add the pounded/blended paste and saute for 3 minutes.
  4. Add the pepper and salt. Saute for 1 minute.
  5. Add the light soy sauce, water and beansprouts. Cook for 4 minutes.
  6. Add the mustard leaves. Mix well.
  7. Add the noodles. Mix everything well, to make sure the noodles are coated with the remaining liquid. Fry until there’s no liquid in the pan. This should take 2-3 minutes.
  8. Serve and eat immediately!Mie goreng is ready to be served


  • If you can’t find yellow noodles, replace them with dried ramen noodles.
  • Adjust the number of chillies according to your taste. If you can’t tolerate spicy food, I suggest using 1 bird’s eye chill instead of 2. 
  • I’ve put ½ tsp salt as a guide, but you can modify it according to your taste. As the light soy sauce already contains salt, you might want to half the amount of salt you normally use.
