Fried Hokkian Mee a.k.a Black Noodle

Both Mishu and mommy have sore throat and been coughing on and off  for almost a month now.Now our taste bud taste horrible after taking so much cough medicine .Long story short,I suggested to Mishu that we should eat something heavy in taste eg:Curry Laksa or Assam Laksa but but both these dishes have spices and chili(pepper).It's will make our throat feel worst the next day,right? Luckily, I found a pack of udon noodle in the fridge,so here comes the idea of making Hokkien mee!! Beggars can't be chossy!! It's one of Mishu's favorite Malaysia dish!!




 Ingredients:
1 pack udon,1 lb,soak with water if it's in the fridge for a while.
3 medium size cuttlefish,clean and cut
10 medium or large size shrimp,deviened and clean.
1 small napa(Chinese cabbage) washed and cut
3 pieces chicken tender,slice thin
5-6 cloves garlic,peeled and minced

Seasoning:
2 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce
2-3 tbsp caramel sauce (thick soy sauce) Yuen Chuan brand is ideal for this dish
1 tbsp ground black pepper
1 tbsp chicken bouillon powder
21 tbsp sesame oil
1/2 cup water
4-5 tbsp cooking oil

handful fried shallot for topping


 Method:
1:Heat wok at high flame with oil and garlic.Fry for 20 seconds before add in slices chicken and udon noodle.Stir well follow by adding water and all the seasoning in the wok.
2:Simmer the noodle for 10 minutes,keep stirring to prevent burning and sticking at the bottom.If needed add some water.
3:Add in napa,shrimp and cuttlefish,keep stirring well.Check the seasoning.
4:Dish out,top with fried shallot.Serve warm immediately with your favorite pepper(sambal belacan or cut pepper)

This virus is really nasty! The last time my family caught this bug we were sick for one month but hubby was worst cause he is exposed to the virus when working. I didn't take any meds cause that time I was still breast feeding. I boil lo hon ko and honey dates and drank it like water.
This is my favorite noodles and wah tan hor!!I use to ask for that when we go out to eat when I was little. I call it hak kwai meen.
Hope you guys get well quick!!
