    kleigh83's Note:

    This was a favorite in the hostel that I lived in and we were lucky enough to have the real stuff in Indonesia. You can just buy the 20cent ramen packets and not use the flavorings. That works just fine, and I recommend the eggs more than the tofu... but whatever floats your boat.

      I added quite a bit more veggies than called for. I used grated carrot, broccoli and snow peas. This is an easy recipe to make and has lots of flavour. Thanks for the recipe

      With 2 tbsp of cayenne this was very spicy. Burned a bit from the back of the throat all the way down to the belly. Just the way SE Asian spicy is supposed to... This was very good!
