sometimes i think this blog should be renamed "Review of Lily Ng's recipes" cos i try out so many of her recipes...(and they are fantastic, each and everyone of them..)
last week it was her tien tsin pau...which took much longer than expected and made me stay up til 1.30am..but when i tried the first bite, the 3 hour effort was all worth it!!! It reminds of xiao long bao/ soup dumplings...it was that juicy!
today i made mee hoon kueh/ handmade noodle pieces in soup...
also quite time consuming..the rolling out of the dough mainly....i think these were invented in the days before machines...
aye...yar...pre-packaged noodles will perhaps suffice..but hey, nothing beats home-made anything right??
made almost exactly as per Lily's recipe...down to fried shallots and garlic (something new) with chili padi, soy sauce, vinegar and sugar. Bought soy beans absentmindedly so used that in the stock as well. Next time, i will just get premade noodles...though these tasted more like italian egg pasta cos they were quite 'Q' (firm/ springy to the bite).
