MEE SIAM


Mee Siam

I haven't made this for quite sometime. Doesn't seem to be favorite among the children. When come to Meehoon the children preferred, the Singapore Meehoon or the Soya Sauce Meehoon. Anyhow this time around I managed to convinced the children of my choice.

Mee Siam or “Siamese noodles” is basically spicy fired rice vermicelli with various toppings such as shrimp, chicken, fried firm tofu, and shredded omelet. Mee Siam is usually served with sambal ikan bilis.


INGREDIENTS
1 packet Meehoon soak / 1 paket bihun direndam
1 cup fresh shrimps / 1 cawan udang hidup
2 cups bean sprouts / 2 cawan taugeh
1/2 cup chives / 1/2 cawan kucai
1/2 cup tochew / 1/2 cawan tochew
2 fresh tofu fried and slice / 2 tauhu goreng dan potong dadu
2 fresh red chilies sliced diagonally/ 2 biji cili merah potong menyerong
2 eggs - make an omelete and slice thinly / 2 biji telor buat telor dadar dan potong nipis-nipis.
1 stalk cilantro sliced thinly / 1 tanngkai daun sup potong nipis
1 stalk spring onion sliced thinly/ 1 tangkai daun bawang potong nipis-nipis
fried shallot for garnishing/bawang goreng untuk taburan.

METHOD

  1. Soak the vermicelli in warm water for about 30 minutes or until they turn soft. Drain and set aside. Using a food processor, grind the spice paste and set aside. Heat up a wok with some oil and make the beaten eggs into an omelet. Fold and slice the omelet thinly. Set aside./ Rendam Meehoon sekurang-kurangnya 30 minit.

Sudah lama benarlah saya berhajat nak makan Mee Siam ini, jarang membuatnya di rumah kerana kurang mendapat sambutan daripada anak-anak. Anak-anak lebih mengemari Meehoon Singapore dan Meehoon Kicap. Mee Siam ini enak dimakan dengan sambal ikan bilis. Dalam resipi saya ini saya tidak blendkan tochew dengan bahan giling tetapi sebaliknya memasukkan tochew sebiji-biji bersama bahan lain, ini menambahkan rasanya yang masam-masam dan manis.
