Mie Koclok Cirebon

Idfb challenge 11 is about mie nusantara. Oh, who doesn't love mie (noodle)? I shouldn't miss it! I cook mie (noodle) quite often. But usually it is only mie goreng Jawa (Javanese fried noodle). Yes, that's because my children love fried noodle a lot. But, this time, due to this challenge, I should try something else. How about mie that is not fried?

Mie koclok cirebon is one of mie recipes that I wanted to try for so long. It got its name because the noodle is being shaken (koclok in Javanese language) in boiling water prior to be served. The kuah (sauce) is thick and tasty due to the coconut milk and corn flour. I got the basic recipe from mba wulan's site. It's a good a try dish, really tasty, but still cannot beat the  Javanese fried noodle to my children :)
