Labuan Tok Tok Mee (Noodles) Recipe

After tasting the flavouful Labuan Tok Tok Mee, I cook up a similar one at home using the dried mee cap udang (dried prawn brand noodle) that I bought from the mini market there. The dried noodles might looked like normal instant noodle to you, but it is actually very tasty and full of flavours.
The original Labuan Tok Tok Mee has a rich prawn and meat based broth. However, at home I just used whatever I have in my fridge to make the broth. The final result was quite good and my kids gobbled up all the noodles in a jiffy! LOL!

Labuan Mi Cap Udang, Soak in water to soften or blanched briefly in boiling water
Prawns, 5 medium
Meat balls, 5 pcs
Crab Stick, 5 pcs
Meat, 100 gms
Carrot, cut into slices (optional)
Corn flour with water mixture
Salt to taste

Coat the noodles with a little dark soya sauce and fry them in a very hot wok. Put the noodle aside. Pour around 7 rice bowls of water in a pot and bring to a boil. Add meat, prawns, carrot and crab stick. Bring to a boil and add corn flour to thicken the soup. Add salt to taste. Pour the soup over the fried mee cap udang. Garnish with spring onions and serve.
