Cookbook Countdown#7: CAN ~ Balinese fried noodles

 Welcome to Cookbook Countdown
 I'm co-hosting Cookbook Countdown together with Joyce of Kitchen Flavours. If you are like us, who love to collect cookbooks and have an overcrowding bookshelf (or bookshelves!), yet most of the books have not been used at all, now is the time to change that. Join us at Cookbook Countdown
Thank goodness for Cookbook Countdown!
Look what I found from my stash ~ Classic Asian Noodles (CAN)
pages 126-127: Balinese fried noodles
fresh wheat noodles, cooking oil, eggs to make omelette,
sliced onions, prawns peeled and deveined,
cabbage shredded, carrot cut into stripes.
spice paste:
(to be blended after sauteing - but I skipped this step as 
the ingredients were chopped rather fine; and I mashed up the
tomatoes with back of wooden spoon)
ripe tomatoes - skinned and roughly chopped
cooking oil, shallots peeled and thinly sliced
garlic peeled and sliced
fresh red chili seeded and coarsely chopped
ginger slices, lemon grass finely sliced
water, sugar, salt, sweet dark soy sauce
fried shallots, lime wedges
This was delicious!
