Mee Rebus Johor

Now,this is the mee rebus (boiled noodle) I've been craving for a looooong time. If I tell you that I've only taken mee rebus Johor once in my life time, I think you're going to laugh. haha.... But its true ! I often visit to Malay food stalls but not many of them serve this kind of mee rebus. Most Malay food stalls serve only common mee rebus with clear spice soup. The only mee rebus I've tried was at Kluang Rail Kopitiam (Kluang famous coffee shop). Hubby's elder sibling who was from Kluang introduced me to this famous mee rebus dish of the shop. It was sooooo delicious. How could I forget the taste & smell of it. Mee rebus Johor basically is boiled noodle with special rich gravy which consist of certain range of spices. The gravy is simply irresistible. So after google for some time, I finally came out this homemade dish.

Mixing up the cooked blended paste with mashed potato mixture, and its ready to go for boiling.

(Serve : 5-6 persons)
Ingredients for Blended Paste :
5 dried chilies, soaked
1 large onion, sliced
2 shallots

3 pcs  asam keping (tamarind slices)
200gm  sweet potato, steamed & blend with 2 cups water
2TB   gula melaka
1/2 tspn  salt
12/ tspn  vegetable granule

(1) preheat a frying pan with 1/2 cup of cooking oil, saute the blended paste till fragrant.
(2) when ready, combine cooked paste with other ingredients and mix well, then bring it to boil.
(3) lower the heat and continue cooking till the consistency as you like.
(4) once its done, set aside and ready to serve.

Ingredients for serving :
yellow noodle, rinsed
cucumber, julienned
bean sprout, cleaned the end

(2) then serve yellow noodle with sweet potato gravy, bean sprout, julienned cucumber, hard boiled eggs, calamansi & fried onion (optional).
Now, squeeze calamansi over the gravy and then stir to mix everything...... what else ! Lets wallop ! haha... Gosh, it was soooo delicious. Love the gravy especially. My boy, the picky eater came for the second round. So, do I need to explain more ! Hope you guys will love it too.
