Mamak Style Mee Goreng using Peanut Butter

My New Year Resolution for next year started early, last week actually with my aim to cook dinner 6 days a week. I realize eating out is an easier option but finding quality food for a good price is difficult. This will also be a good reason to browse through my ever growing number of cookbooks and making good use of them.
So far I managed to achieve my aim last week and going strong this week....do hope the enthusiasm lasts through the coming months.... :)

I made this fried noodles yesterday and it was really tasty, enjoyed by my 2.5 years old too. The added Peanut Butter enhances the flavour, giving it a yummy nutty taste.

Serves : 3 persons

1 small pack of  Yellow wet noodles, washed and drained
1 onion, sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced / pounded
chilli paste

Combine together:
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp bottled chilli sauce
3 tbsp bottled tomato sauce
some salt and white pepper powder to taste
1 tbsp creamy peanut butter

some sliced fishcakes / slightly fried beancurd
1 large tomato, sliced
a handful of mustard leaves (sawi), cut into 1 inch pieces
a handful of beansprouts

1 egg, beaten with a little salt

Method :

Heat oil in a wok, fry onion, garlic till fragrant. Add in chilli paste and cook till fragrant,
Add in fishcakes/ tofu, mix well. Add in the combined sauces and fry for a few seconds.
Add in tomato, noodles and mustard leaves, mix well to combine. Add in beansprouts.
Add a little water in needed. Cook covered for a few minutes.
