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!!
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
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
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.
