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.

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.
