Good Morning Malaysia, today breakfast menu is a famous kopitiam dish named Fishball Noodles Soup. It's one of the Chinese Breakfast Menu, if you step in any "kedai kopi"(kopitiam) you will definitely find this dish. It's soupy and fresh using fishballs as the main ingredients. You can make your own fish balls or use the ready made one, but I strongly recommend making your own for this recipe in order to have a tastier and fresh soup. Here's the recipe for the fish balls and the noodles soup.

Recipe adapted from Greg&Nee Blogspot

The Fish Balls
350 to 400gm of mackarel fish meat
2 teasp of salt
1 teasp of pepper
3 1/2 tbsp of cold water
3 tbsp of egg white
1 1/2 teasp of MSG

1) Choose a nice fresh medium sized, flat mackarel fish. Do a three part filleting on the fish. Scrap the fish meat with a spoon.

2) Place fish meat in chopper/mincer machine and mincing for a minute or so. Stop to add seasoning and continue mincing. Add egg white and water and mince till fish glutten can be seen at the side of the mincing bowl.
3)Dish out the minced fish paste. Prepare a bowl of icy water with ice in it. Wet your hands a little or if you have warm hands like mine, dip your hands in the cold water and with the same hand, start beating the fish meat against a flat surface. Scoop up and continue beating till the paste looks smooth and feels springy. Wet or dip your hands as you go along.

4) Once ready, hold some paste in your hand and do the fist motion. Paste will be squeezed out from your thumb and forefinger. With a wet metal spoon, scoop the paste right into the cold bowl of water. Continue till paste finishes.

5) Soak balls for 20 min or so in the icy water. Prepare a pot of water and boil fish balls till they float to the surface. Dish out and set aside. You can freeze balls for future usage.

For The Soup and The Noodles
3-4 bundles of vermicelli, soaked till soften
1/2 chicken
1/2 tbsp of minced garlic
1/2 tbsp of minced shallots
3 tbsp of cooking 4
1.5 - 1.8 litre of superior chicken soup
2 tbsp of light soya
fish cakes sliced
vegies like chives, blanched in hot water
salt and pepper to taste
dash of sesame oil

  1. Make the stock. Put the chicken in a heavy-bottomed pan. Add 2 litres (3 1/2 pints) water and bring to the boil.
  2. Skim, lower the heat, cover and simmer for l l/2 hours. Remove the chicken from the stock and set aside for use in another recipe.Leave it to cool and shredded.
  3. Heat pot with oil, stir fry garlic and shallots till fragrant. Add superior chicken soup and light soya. Simmer for 10 min or so. Add fish balls and bring it to a boil. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Cook noodles in boiling water and rinse with cold water. Divide into 4-5 bowls. Divide vegies and place a little bit of sliced fish cake, chives and shredded chicken into bowls, and dish out fish ball soup and fish balls to each bowl. Serve with cut chillis and soya.

Asalamualaikum dan SELAMAT PAGI, hari ini menu sarapan pagi kita ialah Chinese Breakfast, iaitu menu favorite di kebanyakan kedai kopi Cina atau kopitiam, Bihun Sup Bebola Ikan. Bihun Sup ini tidak pedas, segar dan sedap. Untuk menambahkan impak pada sajian ini sebaiknya bebola ikan itu dibuat sendiri, sup akan jadi lebih manis dan segar. Untuk resipi ini saya masukkan juga ayam untuk dijadikan stok, isi ayam disiat-siatkan dan juga sebagai tambahan saya masukkan juga fish kek. Dihidangkan bersama cili jeruk atau pun sambal kicap jika ada yang inginkan lebih pedas.
