Chicken Wantan Mee (fresh egg noddle) Recipe – Halal

Won Ton, Wan Ton, Wanton, Wantan or Wontan, whatever you call it, is one of the local favourite hawker fast food. Wantan mee (egg noodles) are made from flour, alkaline water and eggs. The mee itself taste nice and there are a few ways to cook this very versatile noodle. The normal one served at a hawker stall is the dry type with black and light soya sauce. Then it is garnished with springs onions, char siew (sweet roast pork) and sawi (choy sum, vegetable). Every weekend, whenever I go to the wet market, I would buy some fresh wantan mee (egg wantan noodles) and keep them in my fridge. Somehow, kids love to eat wantan mee and I like to prepare it at home as supper for my kids instead of buying it from hawker stalls. This is my ‘modified’ version of the local Malaysian hawker wantan mee using chicken meat instead of barbecue pork. I make it with a little bit of soup and I found it to be tastier that way!

Wantan noodles, 1 serving

Garlic, 3 pcs, chopped finely
Light soya sauce, 1 table spoon
Dark Soya Sauce, ½ teaspoon
Salt to taste
Chicken meat, 100 gms, minced
Vegetable oil, 1 table spoon
Sesame oil, 1 teaspoon
Oyster sauce, 1 teaspoon
Spring onions for garnishing, 1 stalk, cut into small piece

Blanch wantan noodle in boiling water and then put in cold water for a short while. Then blanch it again with boiling water and put aside. Put vegetable oil in wok and sautéed garlic until golden brown. Add a little water, light soya sauce, dark soya sauce, salt, chicken meat, sesame oil and oyster sauce. Add a little corn flour mixed with water to thicken the gravy a little. Pour the gravy over the noodles and mixed well. Garnish with spring onions and serve.

Try...1 teaspoon msg, 1 tablespoon cooking oil/lard (best if pre-used to fry sliced onions), 1 tablespoon chio cheng (light soy sauce) - add fried onions and chopped spring onions...add this to the egg noodles and toss and you get Sibu kampua. Add chilli sauce if you prefer it hot. At home, I usually replace the chio cheng with Bovril...

Serve with a few pieces of thinly-sliced meat
