Braised flat noodles with scallops | 15 comments:




I spotted these mini scallops from a seafood wholesale outlet near my house and was surprised when the  proprietress told me that these were local.  The source ..... from Kelantan, a northern east coast state  of peninsular Malaysia.  They ended up in my dish of noodles and weren't too bad, tastewise, sweet and a bit chewy.








This is another easy does it, tasty one-dish meal, simple and quick to prepare.
