I enjoy cooking dishes from my native Malaysian cuisine. Maggi goreng is one of my favorite recipes.
A Malaysian Specialty
This is a quick and easy guide to making one of my country's most famous dishes, maggi goreng. My entire family loves this dish, and I hope you enjoy it too!
|Prep time||Cook time||Ready in||Yields|
- 2 (79-gram) packets Maggi (I used curry flavor)
- 3 tablespoons oil
- 3 tablespoons oyster sauce
- 3 tablespoons chili sauce
- 3 tablespoons tomato sauce
- 2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
- 1 1/2 tablespoons light soy sauce
- 1/4 tablespoons salt
- 2 eggs
- Vegetables (any vegetables are fine; any amount)
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1 onion
- 4 green chilies, or to taste
- 3 sausages (or other protein, as preferred)
A plate of Maggi is sure to turn a gloomy day into a bright one.

- Add hot boiling water onto the dried Maggi noodles (or just straight up boil the noodles). I prefer the first option as I prefer the noodles being slightly harder rather than too soft. Drain the noodles once they are cooked to your preference.
- Dice all the vegetables including the onion and garlic. If you prefer to blend the garlic you may do so. Gather your sauces and spices.
- In a bowl, crack the eggs and mix them with a bit of salt.
- Heat a wok and add the oil.
- Add in your sausages. After they turn into a brownish color remove them from the wok.
- Add in your garlic and onion. Stir-fry until the onions are golden brown.
- Add in the eggs and scramble them.
- After the eggs are cooked, add in the chilies.
- Add in your vegetables and mix well.
- Add in 1 1/2 tablespoons of oyster sauce, 1 tablespoon of chili sauce, and 1 tablespoon of tomato sauce. Mix well. Then, add the sausages back into the wok.
- Once the sauces are well combined add in the Maggi noodles.
- Add in both packets of the Maggi powder, 1 1/2 tablespoons of light soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of dark soy sauce, and the remainder of your oyster, chili and tomato sauces. Mix well until your noodles are well coated with the sauces.
- Check for taste. You may add more dark soy sauce if the color of the noodles is too light.
- Plate up and enjoy!
There is no sincerer love than the love of food.
