Mee Jawa

This recipe is adapted from Kuali, Amy Beh Page since 1998.  Mee Jawa, Mee Rebus and Mee Bandung are of different recipes and ingredients. We preferred Mee Jawa as its receipe is very light with tomato sauce and prawns.

The recipe with * are my add-ons.

Return the prawn shells to the pot to make prawn stock.
Continue boiling the stock for another 30 minutes.
Discard the shells.

Method
