Mie Aceh Original ( Original Aceh Style Fried Noodles)

Last year I visited Seunagan, near Meulaboh in Aceh.  We were very lucky that one of the lady : ibu Ridal with the help of other ibu cooked Aceh style fried noodles for our dinner. 

The distinct difference to most fried noodles, Aceh style use more spices and curry powder. Indeed I have posted in 2012 my style of Mie Aceh, but it is good to see the original recipe that was made and cooked by Acehnese lady. If you love noodles, do try this recipe. To my taste that was better than any restaurant or warung made.
