Hakka Mee aka Hakka Noodles




This is yet another one dish meal, Hakka Mee/Hakka Noodles. These noodles are quite similar to Won Ton Noodles, except that they  have less lye water and the noodles are a bit flat and thicker.  They're served with bean sprouts with a generous serving of minced meat sauce.






the noodles, ........... need to loosen them up before cooking











serve with chilli sauce topped with chopped garlic ..... that will do the trick ..... yummy!

  2. This looks great. This is another comfort food. This is a dish I would eat after a hard day's work. So, is Hakka noodles also egg noodles? Are they similar to ramen too?

    It is egg noodles, but the texture is a bit different from won ton noodles. Not so sure whether it's similar to ramen.

    Oh, a good question. Hakka is a clan from China, another name is Khek,(in Chinese means 'guest') they speak a different dialect, but they're hardworking people. In M'sia most of them, the early migrants,I mean, work in tin mines and some of them branch out to set up Chinese medical shops. This is one of their dish. Some of their signature dishes are Hakka Yong Tau Fu (Stuffed tofu) and mui choy kow yoke (preserved vegetable with pork slices).

    You can substitute with your egg noodles, but make the mince meat and mushroom sauce. Of course, I understand, you Hakka lady!

Gula Melaka Kuih Talam ~ 椰香打南糕

After successfully making the  Kuih Talam  with much trial and error, I ventured into trying out making this Gula Melaka Kuih Talam.  What is gula melaka one may ask?  Simply put, it's just palm sugar made from coconut palm.  The slightly saltish top coconut layer pairs very well with the dark and intense flavour of the palm sugar from the bottom layer, and this kuih can be served for breakfast or snack on at any time of the day.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
