Mee Rebus

First of all let's change the word "Hubby" to "S"
I found it's quite mushy everytime i typed it... lol!!

"S" suddenly mumbled a lot of Tanjung Pinang's hawker foods few nights ago before sleeping
"When i go back to T.P, i want to eat bla bla bla....and bla bla bla...."

One of the food he mentioned was Mee Rebus
Then my brain was starting to work !!!
As i knew Mee Rebus isn't a complicated food to cook...

The next morning, i started to search for lots of recipe on the internet
I combined every recipe, added every ingredients to my recipe list as i thought will turn nice, then i made my own conclusion 
 "S" said it was nice but still lack of something - nutty flavour!!
"S" bro said it was like "Indian" food, haha... - i added curry powder in it (maybe i should discard it from my recipe next time)
I will never ask his little bro because everytime i did - he will say "nice-nice" even he hasn't touch the

So this is my first attempt!!

Dry ingredients:
1 kg Egg Noodle
500 gr Bean Sprout
1 packet Tofu Puff
2 Green Chilies
Fried Shallot
4 Eggs
2 Stalk Coriander 

Boil eggs - de shelled and set aside
Soak Noodle in hot water for 5 minutes - drained and set aside
Cut the Tofu Puff into bite size
Prepare for Green Chilies; Fried Shallot and Coriander to garnish

Gravy ingredients:
15 Shallots (I used 10 Shallots and 1 Red Onion)
10 Dried Chilies - de seeded and soak
5 cloves Garlic
1 inch Galangal
1 inch Ginger
1 tbsp Turmeric Powder
1 tbsp Coriander Powder
1 tsp Lemon Grass Powder
1 tbsp Curry Powder
10 Candle Nut
3 tbsp Salted Soy Bean (Tao cio)
1 tbsp Shrimp Paste (Belacan)
1/4 bowl Oil
1,6 litre Water - can be substituted with Chicken Broth

Bring all of the Gravy ingredients to blender - process to paste form (except 1,6 litre Water)
Saute the paste in a teflon until fragrant
Bring to boil with 1,6 litre Water / Chicken Broth
Add Seasoning 
( Add the diluted Tapioca Starch lastly after the Gravy has boiled )

2 tbsp Sugar
1 tbsp Salt
2 tbsp Tapioca Starch - diluted with 150 ml Water

Place those dry ingredients in a plate, pour the warm Gravy over
Garnish with Green Chilies; Coriander and Fried Shallot

Happy Cooking!!!
