Mie Ayam Jamur (Chicken Mushrooms noodle)

One popular food in Indonesia. Everyone like it, from eastern to western Indonesia with variety of herbs and additional options like dumplings and meatballs. Everyone has their own favorite. Usually we rarely make this at home because we can get it easily from "bakmi seller" with their mobile stall in our alley or we just go to their food stalls near the corner everywhere in Indonesia.
Since I live in Turkey where I can not find them everywhere, so the only way I can do is making it by my self, a little bit effort but satisfy my craving of homeland cuisine.

Served 6 ~ 8
  egg noodles
 pok coy or mustard leaves or kale 
 Green onion, roughly chopped
 sweet soy sauce
 "sambal" or Chili sauce
 sesame oil or olive oil
 dumplings and beef / chicken meatballs (optional)

People here love to enjoy them at breakfast or brunch time. You can find Simit sellers mostly in the early morning at streets or any other places in Turkey. And some breakfast cafes provide them while they are hot and fresh from the oven in the morning only. With hot tea accompany it make this "bagel" very popular as a breakfast/ brunch menu in Turkey.
