Murtabak Maggi

On the days that he gets to leave early from work, Mr Hubs will try his best to drop by the TTDI Ramadhan Bazaar for his favourite popia basah. A few days back, he received an sms from SIL for an order for Murtabak Maggi from the bazaar. So, he made his round, however to no avail. Later, we found out that there's no such thing sold at the TTDI bazaar but in Bangsar instead. Going to Bangsar from work and back to TTDI on fasting month is a bit taxing during Ramadhan, considering the jam and all.

So, being a good SIL (hehe!), I googled and looked up for the recipe. Right after terawikh last nite, at MIL's, I rolled up my sleeves and had a go with the recipe. And this was what I came up with. Believe me, it may look just like an omelette, but taste-wise, it's pretty good.

A word of caution though, it's not that healthy to have this on regular basis ya ;) But then again, well, minus the instant noodles, I'd say you'll have your protein and vege servings from the egg, meat, onion, chilli. Not all bad, ay? Haha..Here's the recipe, taken from Resepi.

2 packet of instant noodle
3 eggs
1 onion
1 red chili
Slices of beef/chicken
Oil to fry
Salt to taste

1. Boil the instant noodle until cooked and remove the noodle from the water. Fry the meat with chilli and onion.
2. Beat the eggs until fluffy and add in a pinch of salt (skip the salt if you find the noodle flavouring is already salty).
3. Add in all the ingredients into the beaten egg (the noodle, meat, onion and chili and the instant noodle flavour packet). Mix well.
4. Heat up the pan and cook the instant noodle mixture with little bit of oil. Fry each side until golden colour.
5. Serve with chili sauce.
