Mie nyemek, or Indomie with reduced broth, is a popular street food in Indonesia, especially in Central Java. It’s quick, easy, comforting, and a nice variant of the usual Indomie.
- 2 packets of Indomie Mie Goreng
- 100g mustard leaves, chopped (or any leafy greens)
- 1 big red chilli, sliced
- 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 200 ml water
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- In a wok or a pot, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and red chilli slices, and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute.
- Add the instant noodle seasoning and oil. Saute for 1 minute.
- Add the water and bring to a boil.
- Add the raw instant noodles and cook until the noodles soften. If necessary, stir to quicken the process, or cover the pot. This should take about 4 minutes, slight longer than the usual because there’s less water.
- Add the mustard leaves, and stir for about 1 minute to let it cook.
- For this recipe, I’ve used Indomie’s Mie Goreng flavour, which uses artificial chicken which is, possibly, vegan. But this can be replaced with any other instant noodle flavour of your choice.
