Emergency Mee Goreng

After, the big 'Kampung' dinner yesterday, "B" wanted me to cook something simpler tonight. How simple IS simple? Not cooking IS the simplest! Being "B", he didn't suggest any. He gave me the go-ahead to do anything I want, following my taste for the day. Simple for me are one dish meals. Either mee goreng or fried rice. Since, I DO have a packet of yellow mee needed to be used, why not Mee Goreng basah-pedas. But, argh...! I'm short of the ground dried chillies. The ultimate agent needed in cooking a "power" mee goreng! Nah... noway I'm gonna cut, soak, blend the dried red chillies. Too much hassle. Defeat the meaning of simple cooking. So... I came up with the "Emergency Mee Goreng". Hah... It did eventually tasted close enough. "Pedas" (Hot) enough. "Basah" (Wet) enough. Okie docs, "B" mari makan sekarang! ("B" come eat now!"). He gave his thumbs-up.
Tomorrow, no more being lazy. I'm gonna blend those dried red chillies and store it in the refrigerator for future use. You'll never know when it'll come in handy. Just ANYTIME...!!!
