Angel Hair Spaghetti Wantan Mee Recipe - East Meets West

When my daughter asked me to cook wantan mee for supper, I accidentally discovered that I can make dry wantan mee from spaghetti as well. Actually, I do not have fresh wantan mee (egg noodles) in my fridge so I experimented with this popular hawker dish using angel hair spaghetti. The texture and taste of the spaghetti in wantan mee sauce are quite near to the original one. Check it out this recipe!

Ingredients
Angel Hair Spaghetti, 1 bunch
Garlic, 5 pcs, chopped finely
Light Soya Sauce, 3 tablespoons
Dark Soya Sauce, 1 teaspoon
Pepper, to taste
Sesame oil, 1 teaspoon
Vegetable oil, 2 tablespoons (Your can use pork lard, taste nicer)
Oyster sauce,1 tablespoon
Sugar to taste
Salt to taste
Spring onions, 2 stalks, cut into small pieces

Pour water in a pot and boil spaghetti until they turned soft. Drain away excess water and put aside. Put vegetable oil in frying pan and sauté garlic until fragrant. Add sesame oil, pepper, light soya sauce, dark soya sauce, oyster sauce, sugar and salt to taste. Pour a little water in to the mixture and bring to a boil. Add a little water and corn starch mixture to thicken the wantan mee gravy. Pour the gravy over the wantan mee and mix well. Garnish with spring onions and char siew (sweet bbq pork belly) before serving.
