July 17, 2011

I have been thinking of posting Indonesian mie goreng long time back, since I know that Mie Goreng is not in my recipe index nor never being posted. To me it looks so odd and ridiculous, well knowing that I'm an Indonesian who adore and very much treasure of all Indonesian food and moreover I am a food blogger to most Indonesian food dishes principally, and helooo...i have no Mie Goreng recipe :( you can imagine that...

I felt guilty and clearly aware, I should not be hold-up to write and share to the most wanted Indonesian dish and I am sure that you want to know how to home-cook it, so fasten your seat belt and ready to rock your kitchen with “Indonesian Mie Goreng”


I’m so thrilled to know that I am no longer turn a blind eye to the dear one “Indonesian Mie Goreng”  and this is my very own version yet simple of Indonesian icon dish.
