Mie celor (meaning: celor/blanched noodle), is a noodle soup dish served in a coconut milk and shrimp-based broth, specialty of Palembang city, South Sumatra, Indonesia.[1][2]


It is made from rather large yellow wheat noodles, with the size similar to Japanese buckwheat noodle. The broth can be made from ebi (dried shrimp) or fresh shrimp, cooked in rich coconut milk. The noodles are served with bean sprouts and hard boiled egg, and sprinkled with sliced fresh celery, scallion and fried shallot.

If the broth was made from some fresh shrimps, the peeled shrimp itself would be the part of the topping. If however dried shrimp are used instead, the ground dried shrimp powder would be sprinkled on top of the noodles. To add spiciness, a separate sambal might be added on the side.


In local South Sumatran Malay dialect, celor or celur means showering the ingredients in boiled hot water, in similar fashion as blanching. It refers to the method of softening and cooking the noodle before simmering in coconut milk soup. Today, together with pempek, mie celor has become Palembang's signature dish.
