Indonesian Fried Noodle (Mie Goreng Java)

Talking about instant noodle, one of my favourite brand should be Indomie Mee Goreng! Once in a while I will indulge a pack as a quick snack :P  While browsing recipe for this month Asian Food Fest : Indonesia, I found this homemade Indonesian Fried Noodle which tasted fantastic good! Love the peppery and nutty flavour with a tinge of sweetness. The first attempt I've forgotten to take into consideration the level of spiciness my kids can accept, I've added too much pepper and they had a hard time polishing off their plate of noodle. My hubby also commented too much pepper added >.<" Therefore the second attempt I've reduced the peppercorns used and it tasted much much better for all of us :D
