Misoa Goreng/Fried Somen


Somen, white Japanese noodles made from wheat flour, are very thin and round. Often served not only cold or chilled with ice, but also added to soups. It´s called Misoa in Indonesia. Thanks to Dewi Nanang who has introduced me to this Misoa Goreng.

Retno, this looks a bit like a dish that the Italian cook their leftover pasta. Just mix the pasta with some parmesan cheese and eggs and pan fried. I think yours look more interesting. Can I use normal noodles for this dish?

Retno Prihadana said...

to fitta: silahkan dicicipi gambarnya Fit :))
to i cook4fun: you may try it with normal noodles but different taste.
