Mee for lunch


I cooked Hokkien fried mee again for lunch. The first time I tried it was last weekend, after reading about it on CH's niece's blog. She's working in Las Vegas now and missed this dish so much, she tried cooking it recently. Though it is widely sold in Malaysia, I hardly ever see it at the stalls in Singapore. In actual fact, I can't remember having eaten it before.

Anyhow, using my cooking instincts, I fried up some shallots and yellow noodles, added in fish balls, lean meat, cuttlefish, sliced garoupa fish and lots of chive and kangkong vegetable. I seasoned with dark soya sauce and pepper and dished out a plate for everyone. The boys loved it! Me too.

Mmm, that looks just like what they sell in Kuala Lumpur. Excellent first effort!

Thanks Huier. Hope it tastes as good as it looks!

JY - It's probably quite standard in chinese cooking. Heat oil, add garlic or shallots, toss in one thing after another and voila, it's done!

Blur Ting said...

CH - Oh really? Now you've got to taste it to see if it is like the real thing!

I wish I had cooking instincts... The dish looks and sounds lovely.

Nick Phillips said...

That turned out pretty good :D I'm sure it tasted even better.

Blur Ting said...

Epiphany - I suppose the instinct improves with practice. I have to cook everyday, so I get alot of practice!

Nick - And it doesn't have prawns! You may even like it then!
