Stir-fry Misua 炒面线


Misua or Mee Sua is a very fine, thin variety of  noodles made from wheat flour and originated from Fujian, China.  Misua signifies long life in Chinese culture, hence very often this is served during birthdays and during Chinese New Year.  For this heart warming stir-fry, I used the thick variety of Hock Chew Misua from Sitiawan, added in a few ingredients and it turned out just delicious!
