The mad fairy is at it again. One dark rainy night, the fairy was hungry, and so, she decided to cook something really simple and comforting for herself and her lab rats whom she have the cheek to call family.
This is what she cooked that night…a pot of simple eggs noodles or locally known as yee mee. Here’s the recipe:
2 ‘nest’ of yee mee
1 spoonful of chopped garlic
4 spoonfuls of oyster sauce
3 spoonful of light soya sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
1 bowl of water
Some cooking oil
1 teaspoon of cornflour dissolved in water (optional)
Despite of the ingredients, yee mee is actually easy to cook. All you need to do is sautÃ© the chopped garlic and then pour in the light soya sauce and oyster sauce. Mix well, add in the waterÂ stir lightly and simmer for about 5 minutes.
When the soup is boiling, add in the cabbage and the yeemee. Thickens the soup with dissolved cornflour mixture if you prefer.
And crack an egg onto the yeemee. Add in salt and pepper to taste. Omit if you feel don’t like your food to be salty and peppery, though.
Turn off the fire, and stir the egg into the yeemee well.
Take out and serve while piping hot.
Yield: 2 servings
Preparation time: 15 minutes
