Ahh, Maggi Mee, the original favorite instant noodle that has been so instrumental in getting me through college and all those late night hunger. In fact, my first ever meal cooked without the help from mom was a packet of Maggi mee.

Back then, it was the curry flavor Maggi with an egg for extra umph. Nothing fancy, I was already having trouble cracking the egg without making a mess in the kitchen.

After plenty late night cook-outs and a few years spent studying/working overseas, my general cooking skills has leveled up quite a bit; and with that, the sophistication in preparing a plate of good old Maggi too, has improved.

Today, I am going to share a simple recipe in preparing fried Maggi Mee with live fresh water prawn (details on getting the freshest fresh water prawn below). Maggi Mee, my way!

Steps for Prawns:

  • heat up frying pan with vegetable oil, and fry shallots, garlic, and curry leaves till fragant
  • add live prawn, and sauna it to death
  • add a dash of salt and some soya sauce
  • tips: add a dash of water and cover the frying pan to steam the seafood a little bit

Steps for Maggi:

  • boil Maggi for 2 minutes and then drain water
  • mix the condiment in a small bowl with 2 table spoon of water
  • stir fry the Maggi with the premixed condiment
  • add two eggs, and stir till eggs are cooked

Finally, add prawns to the noodle, and you’ve got a plate of really awesome fresh water prawn Maggi. Bonus point if you can do both of these steps at the same time to ensure that both items are piping hot when served.

That is my way of cooking Maggi, what about yours?

If you think you have a recipe as interesting, head to Maggi Mee My Way’s website to participate in the contest. All you have to do is by submitting your recipe with Maggi Mee and a few photos (remember your unique ingredients, like my live prawn, for example).

Winners walk away with cash prizes up to RM 4,000 plus RM 100 worth of Maggi products hamper. Check out the prizes listing here. I always love it when contests give away cash prizes, money is just so much more versatile.

The video above Β is the prove that the prawns used for the post were really caught from a prawn fishing pond the hard way. We spent 2 hours (1st 45 minutes in vain as we somehow managed to not used the hook) and got a total of 6 prawns back.

The end result was a couple plates of very delicious Maggi Mee with fresh water prawns. Yums!

So do you have what it takes to join Maggi Mee, My Way?

  1. Oh nice! This looks like the maggi mee that one of my friends in KK, Sabah used to cook. He lives in those stilt water houses so he can just stab crabs at night, chop it in half and dump it into 1 packet Maggi Ayam (only works with the chicken flavor, or so he claims).

    They tend to be short on money too, so his solution was to buy rice and add that into the maggi mee for enough carbs. I tried eating it with rice once when he demonstrated. Not too bad. πŸ™‚

  2. Huai Bin,
