Wheat Noodle Soup

We all enjoy this tasty "mi-hoon" in hokkein (wheat) noodles especially when the weather is wet and cool. I got these fresh wheat n egg noodle from the wet market. If you cannot get the fresh ones, alternatively, use the dried packet wheat and egg noodles from the hypermart..taste good too.

I like this fresh wheat n egg noodles as it is non-oily also free from boric acid and coloring as compared to the fresh yellow noodle. Give a try as it is very simple to cook, just make sure you get the soup right. The onion brings a natural sweetness to the soup, and gives the soup a nice aroma. Alternatively, the soup can be made up of a handful of lightly fried ikan billis (anchovis) - not so healthy for those with high cholestrol!!

You see the sambal belacan in the blends well with the noodle as compared to chilly padi in soya sauce! (Optional - depends on individual taste) For us in the family, the sambal is yummy and a good blend of taste to the bowl of noodle. Here it goes for lazy and busy mum.....

Simple Ingredients : serve 4

  • 600 gms of fresh wheat and egg noodles
  • 3 pieces chicken breast meat - 2 pc for boiling soup and 1pc to mince
  • handful of ikan billis (anchovis)
  • some choy sam (green mustard) - to blanch
  • 3 big onions - 2 for soup, 1 to chop
  • some salt, pepper, 1 Tbs cornflour

Simple Process :

  1. Heat 2 litres water in a pot, drop in 2 big onions and the 2pcs chicken breast meat, salt to taste, boil over slow fire for 30-40minutes..
  2. Minced the chicken meat, add in some salt, pepper and 1 Tbs cornflour and mix well
  3. Heat some oil and fry the ikan billis till crispy, drain well and put aside
  4. Next, fry the chopped onion till fragrant and add in the minced chicken meat and stir fry. Add just a little water and let the meat simmer for 8mins, dish out and put aside
  5. When soup is ready, time to blanch the veggie and also the noodle. It takes about 5 minutes to blanch the noodle in hot boiling water.
  6. Put the soup over the noodles and garnish with crispy ikan billis, cooked meat and some green veggie.
