Fried Mee with Sesame Seed

I learned this recipi from a Korean friend. Definitely this is not of the original from her culture but as one I practiced cooking hands-on, and then enjoyed a great meal together with some new friends. That was then ...I don't like cooking. As time goes by a skill acquired as they said practice makes it perfect.

What had strike my memory with her today - I do not know but I should make this quick simple dish for dinner tonite! ...and post pics later....

(Serving for 5 with second helping)
600g yellow mee
1/2 cup sesame seed
2 tsb sesame oil
1/2 cup oil
5 garlic
1/2 cup water
4-5 soy sauce
2 camb sugar, salt

300 g prawn - shelled and cleaned
3 red chillies - deseed, slice thinly
3 stalk green union - cut appoximately 2 cm
2 tofu cake - dice
150 g mushroom - chop coarsely
1 red cupsicum - dice
1 celery stalk - dice

Fry sesame seed in a warm wok (without oil) until it turns yellowish - cool off aside. Pound lightly.
Mix both oil in a cup, put half of it in the pre-heated wok, saute the garlic then add in prawn and red chilly. Stir for 2-3 minutes. Dish out and keep aside.
With the remaining oil in the work, fry tofu cake until light brown then dish out.
Pour the balance of oil into the same work and fry the remaining veggies for 2 minutes to maintain them crispy. Add in water, soy sauce and mee then mix them well. Season with sugar and salt to taste. Cover work for 5- 6 minutes then fold in the prawn and tofu. Sprinkle the sesame seed and serve warm.
