Simple Wanton Noodles October 25, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — xxtlhxx @ 3:41 pm

Here’s a simple wanton noodles, but no wanton this time round.  Instead of wanton, I’ve got our prized family favourite ‘hea-chor’ which roughly translates to prawn balls.  I have master this recipe yet. You will need quite a lot of ‘arm power’ to make this.  It is made of prawns and some pork fats.  The prawns have to be shelled and really dry before you mince them.   The next step, needs real arm power to smack minced prawn by throwing them in small quantities against a hard surface like a large pot.  You’ll need to repeat this many times to create bouncy balls.  If you don’t do it right, your prawn balls will have airy pockets and will not be bouncy. Anyway, for now, I’ll leave this recipe to my aunts and uncles who have mastered this recipe.

Sauce for wanton noodles

1 tbs dark soy sauce

1 tbs light soy sauce

1 tbs oyster sauce

dash of pepper

1 tbs of fried shallots and its oil

Mix all ingredients well and add to cooked egg noodles

Additional meat topping

100g minced pork

1 handful of woodear fungus, cut in strips


Fry minced pork and add in prawns and woodear fungus.   You may opt not to put any seasoning.  Lastly, toss cooked egg noodles with the sauce and add meat toppings.  You may add boiled vegetable or fried wanton if you wish
