Hock Chew Mee Shua



Hock Chew Mee Shua ~  also known as 'Mian Xian' in Chinese and 'Meen Seen' in Cantonese are thin salted noodles made from wheatflour .  Mee Shua which originated from Fujian, China can be prepared in many ways.  The most popular of all is the Ang Chiew Mee Shua which is mee shua cooked with Chinese red wine but I chose to prepare this differently ....... stir-fried.  Quick, easy and delicious.






This is another  tasty one-dish meal, a comfort food ........ slurp!

  2. Cheah, I always thought it is very difficult to fry 'mee shua' because it is very soft after blanching. Now I know. Thanks for sharing this recipe :)

  5. hmm... interesting! hock chew mee sua is something new to me! I'm more accustomed to cooking the Amoy/Xiamen type which is thinner and more suited for soups! Will keep a look out for these the next time I'm at the supermarkets!

    1. I wasn't a fan of mee suah before until I came across this homemade from Sitiawan. This is different, not too soft and gluey.

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!

Pandan Ombre Butter Cake ~ 班蘭牛油蛋糕

Whenever I want to make a butter cake, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe will come to my mind.  Her recipe is foolproof and you can use it as a basic recipe and play around with variations of flavours to your liking.  Today, I'm sharing with you a Pandan Ombre Butter Cake.  I've used pandan paste instead of pandan juice as I need to have a distinct green colour to bring out the 'Ömbre' effect, which is from a darker to a lighter shade of green.  I'm pleased with the result and the texture of this cake is soft and moist and it still stays in this manner even after the third day, kept in an airtight container.

To Fu( Beancurd) Bridge ~ 跨桥豆腐

When I was recommended to try this dish in a restaurant, I was both hesitant and at the same time intrigued by its name.  I've heard of the song 'Bridge over troubled water' but Tofu crossing the bridge?  So to satisfy everyone's curiosity, we agreed to give it a try.  It's a nutritious dish with a good source of protein in the Tofu pork and egg all in one.  It was just tasty and delicious to go with a bowl of steaming hot white rice!
