Noodles in Sweet Potato Gravy ( Mee Rebus )


Assalamualaikum and hello dear readers,
Today I am sharing with you a noodle dish called Noodles in Sweet Potato Gravy (Mee Rebus) It'a not too hot yet spicy enough to make this noodle a winner for high tea or dinner. It can be eaten in fact at any time of the day and is quite filling. In this recipe I have substituted the yellow noodle with spaghetti because I am not a fan of yellow noodle.

Here's the video:

Here's the recipe:

I bought some pillows recently supposedly will prevent neck pain.They were quite expensive from the ordinary pillow. Unfortunately I woke up with a neck pain yesterday.Mmmm...made me miss my mum's home made pillow. She used the "cotton" from the kekapas shaped fruit of the Randu tree or Pokok kekabu as we called it. The pillows and mattress with "kekabu" are cooling and soft.Mum used to put the mattress and pillows out in the sun and beat them and they became fluffy again. Some furniture shops here still sell the "cotton" if we want to make our own pillows. It's quite tedious coz the "cotton" would be "flying" all over the house.


I don't have a particular attachment to pillows. I know some people do; the pillows are from when they were a safety blanket :)

Till we meet again have a goodnight sleep everyone and sweet dreams.

Jazakum Allahu Khairan

    w/salam Harry

    It is delicious but for a weight watcher this should be once in awhile kinda indulgence :)

    Neck pain is a pain..wont go away for few days. Hahaha ya I know..couldnt sleep without the "bantal bucuk".

    Thank you Harry for stopping by.

  7. salam umi.. i love all your cooking video in youtube. i tried ayam masak merah and my family really love it. thank you so mmmmmuch umi..

    ooohh i have 1 question about pajeri nenas.. what else can we use beside kerisik. it is hard to find kerisik here in london. we can find coconut but to parut dia agak sukar.

  8. @ratna
    Thank you for the kind comments.
    Thats the questions many have asked. You need a food processor to grate the coconut flesh. kinda difficult to get the flesh out from the kernel. I haven't tried making kerisek with dessicated coconut. I'll let you know when I have.
    I am afraid there's no substitute for kerisek my dear. You can omit it but taste won't be the same

    Thanks for visiting me Ratna.Take care.

  9. wah..sedapnye..faveret sy ni..xpenah buat sendiri lagi..kena cuba buat sendiri ptg ni..uhuhhuhu..:)
