Piggie Maggie Goreng

I don't know many guys who can cook. Hmm... I know one that cooks spaghetti, Jonathan who bakes, Michael who say he can cook too and yesterday nite, Danny say he can cook also, that's about it. Anyway, many girls also can't cook nowadays!!!

I'm very happy yesterday coz it was the first time I cooked maggie goreng, and it is one of a kind, you can't get it anywhere!!! It is Piggie Style cooking. By the way, I am not good at cooking!!!!

Let me bring you through the process:

Ingredients: Piggie, Soy sauce, dark soy sauce, maggie, frozen/fresh veggie.

1. You need to prepare piggie first. Slice thinly and marinate with soy sauce. Amount of soy sauce depends on the amount of piggie you have. Leave it to sit for a while. You can add a little corn starch, as it makes the piggie smoother. It taste as well without it though.

2. Slightly boil the maggie. Be aware not to soften the maggie entirely as there is another frying stage later. So, how long to boil? The maggie should be a little softer but still firm enough to stay in its square shape like when you take out from the packet.

3. Heat a little oil. And pour the piggie into the frying pan. Make sure not to transfer the excess soy sauce into the pan too if you added too much of it at the first step. Fry piggie until it looks cooked outside meaning it become light brown due to the soy sauce.

4. Then, throw in some frozen vegetables or fresh ones. Give it a quick stir and add in your maggie. Stir again and close the pan with the lid. Don't add any water coz the juice of the piggie and the veggie will be enough to cook the maggie.

5. After about 10 seconds, open the lid and stir fry again. You will notice the maggie is cooked already. Now, the final touch, add some dark soy sauce to give that brown colour to your fried maggie. Give it a quick stir fry. Make sure you are fast, as all of the juices has been absorb by the maggie, so the pan is rather dry and if you didn't put a lot of oil at the 2nd step, the maggie will be burn very soon.

6. Turn of the fire and the Piggie Maggie Goreng is ready to be served!!!

Frankly, it taste real nice!! hehe...

Happy trying!!!
