My homemade mee hoon tiak.......!

a yummy plate of ...'mee hoon tiak'....with sambal belacan......

"Mee hoon" in hokkien means..".flour."...and the word..."tiak"...means "tear."... and so it literally means "tear flour". i 've been eating this since i could remember..prepared by mum....it is cheap and very easy to prepare...the secret to this dish is that you have to prepare a good ikan bilis (anchovies) stock beforehand...then you tear in the dough to the soup and boiled it til cook.


For the stock
..i boiled some ikan bilis in a pot of water ...add in a big whole onion ...some crushed garlic and a big knob of crushed ginger for flavour...you can also add in some chicken bones if you have any....for about 20 mins...then sieved the stock and put aside.


For the dough
...i knead some flour with water...oil...and an egg...to a soft dough...then flatten the dough with rolling pin....covered with damp cloth and leave aside.

In a pan.. fry some sliced onion and garlic til ..fragrant...add in some sliced chicken meat....season with salt...add in the prepared stock....bring to a boil....then add in some sayur manis....'mani chai'.....or ...any green vege to the stock.....cook for a minute...then tear in the flatten dough with hands...according to the thickness of your choice...by pulling the dough further...boiled til dough is cook...about a min or two..then serve it with sambal belacan and deepfried ikan bilis...sprinkled on top.
