This is my lunch for today...(and this probably be the most un appertizing picture i've ever taken)
This dish is probably the easiest dish mankind ever created...the ingredients are also ever so simple and the best part is that you can make it so long you have the main ingredients. so today i was trying to use up all my veges and what ever meat i have in the fridge coz tomorrow i'll be in Johor tagging hubby along in his biz trip *grins* to me this can only mean shopping...i love the ZONE duty free shopping complex...but then i also like pelangi mall...enuf bout that
anyway for this dish you'll need...
1clove garlic - chopped
salt to taste
sugar to taste
a dash of freshly cracked black pepper
1tbsp vege oil
500ml water (more if needed)
1" ginger - thinly sliced
mee of your likings... =) i like mee hoon or kue tiaw but today i only have mee hoon
Optional/ ingredients that you can have substitute:
some chicken meat or beef slices or fish meat if you like
fish balls - if you don't have you can do without
some carrots slices
1pc tomatoes - cut into 6pcs
some green veges like spinach or kailan
some bean sprouts if you like but i didn't put this coz i hated it!
some siew mai - this you can do with out but if you do decide to add this it'll add flavor to this dish as this sorts of dumplings ususally is very flavorful
this si how you make it:
saute the garlic until fragrant then add the ginger. cook furtherthen add in the chicken meat or what ever meat you have then the fish balls. let it cook just awhile.
then add in the water. let it simmerthen add in the carrots and tomatoes. add in the salt and sugar to taste.once the meat is throughly cooked add in the dumplings if fyou have it let it cook just a minute or so.then lastly add in the veges (you should not cook the veges for so long) then remove from heat, add in the cracked black pepper.then take the mee and soak in a boiling water for 1 minute or until soft, remove and drained.
ready to servei eat this with my homemade sliced preserved chillies.
how to make it? very easy lar...just slice the green chillies thinly, then add in white vinegar and a little water just until it soak the chillies. then add in some sugar and salt to taste. keep in a glass jar. easy!
