BANGSAMORO HALAL DISH
with Maria Fhebie Ortil
Since last June of 2020 when we launched the Philippine Muslim Today on June 19 with its maiden issue, we have discussed so many cuisines like beef, chicken, and fish.
We are now on Volume 2, No. 12, and l would like to shift to different kinds of noodles. Here I would like to discuss with you about Fried Noodles commonly served in so many Malaysian restaurants.
Hence, for the PMT-19 Vol. 2, No. 12, I would like to present to you the Veggie Mee Goreng (Fried Noodles) made with only vegetables and vegan ingredients.
This easy veggie fried noodles recipe are with ketchup, soy sauce, and lime.
