Mrs. D’s Fried Noodle & Tempe Mendoan

Just a quick, easy and simple recipe today. The fried noodle, basically some kind of whatever-left-in-your-fridge noodle. And I mean it. By using stuffs that I won’t use for other foods, I made this easy and quick fried noodle. You can do the same too. Use any kind of vegetables and meat you have in your kitchen.


300 grams egg noodle, cooked / boiled


Carrots, sliced then julienne

Smoked chicken

Garlic powder

Salt and pepper


How to:

– In a hot pan / wok, saute carrots with salt, pepper and garlic powder.

– Add sliced smoked chicken.

– Add noodle, stir well. Then lastly add spinach.

Once you add in the spinach take the pan off from the stove. The heat from noodle will cook the spinach.

As for the next food, I have tempe mendoan. You can guess from the name, this is made from the famous tempe. Very healthy and high in protein. And mendoan is one of many recipes made from tempe in Indonesia.


1 block of tempe, sliced

2 stalks spring onion, sliced

100 grams AP flour

5 tsp rice flour

1 egg

1/2 tsp ground turmeric

Salt and pepper


How to:

– Mix well all ingredients (except tempe).

– Get ready a pan with lots oil for deep frying if you don’t have fryer.

– Dip each slice of tempe into flour mix.

– Put in a hot oil and fry until crispy or gold colour. Serve warm.

See how quick and easy these 2 recipes are? They’re my best friend too when I’m not in a cooking mode πŸ˜€

Have a nice weekend! πŸ™‚

      Ooooh thank you. Sometimes something simple can be really tasty too πŸ™‚

  1. I like! We have some fresh noodles in the fridge, been wondering what I can do with them. This is a perfect midweek dish.

    • Hey
      tempe is a fermented soy cake made from soy beans. It is very high in protein, healthy and low calory. lots of vegetarians eat it nowadays πŸ™‚

    Thank you Ridha. I am going to try it. Anyway, I am looking at your recipe posts but can’t find an Indonesian dish I enjoyed so much in Singapore long time ago. It is REALLY BIG FLUFFY deep fry tofu (I forgot the name). Could you please show me how to make ti.

    • Hmmm… I’ve lived in Singapore too before, but can you be a bit more specific about the tofu? Is it filled with vegetables and battered?

    I really forgot about the detail of the dish, but the only thing I never forgot is that dish is a deep fried tofu (and very unusual dish to me). I will ask my brother (the one who introduced me to this dish) for more details. Thank you for your prompt reply. I have just seen your wedding pictures and you look so lovely with your hubby. Thanks for sharing your pictures with us.

    • Ok, please let me know, and I’ll try to make it for you. I love tofu a lot too πŸ™‚
      Thank you for your kind comment, hopefully that was my first and last wedding.

A nice comment will make my day ^^
