Indonesian Mie Goreng (Fried Noodles)

“Like most Indonesian dishes this is flavorful and spicy dish- You may make it as "hot" or mild as you like by adding more or less chili.. Attractive to serve. Lovely for a luncheon or part of your dinner meal. The original recipe is from "The complete Asian Cookbook" By Charmaine Solomon- There are some minor changes by me. The Fried onions, Green Onions & cucumber slices are for garnish and optional”
