Foodie Friday - Ah Ma's noodle

Last weekend Daddy has a sudden cravings for a simple noodle dish that his Ah Ma aka Grandma cooked for him when he was a little boy. He went off to gather the necessary ingredients when DinoEgg was at his art class, he was in the kitchen preparing our lunch the minute he steps into the house.

An hour later he emerged with the noodle.  The noodle looks plain and normal, nothing special about it until you taste it!  The soup thick with sweet clam taste, the vegetable is soft and the noodle is cooked just right.  Combine with the fish cake and crab stick, its a delicious bowl of pipping hot noodle.

- 1 packet of noodle (like the one below)
- 1 packet of choy sum
- 1 fish cake
- 1 packet of la-la clams

* The amount of ingredients used for this noodle depends on the number of people you are serving.  We used half a packet of choy sum & noodle while the rest of the ingredients are left over from our previous days cooking.

(1) Put the la-la clams in a pot of water and bring it to boil.  Continue boiling till the clams fragrance is out, taste the soup to see if the soup base is to your desired taste.
(2) Remove the la-la clams for use later.
(3) Put the vegetables to boil till they are soft.
(4) While waiting, remove the la-la clams from their shells.
(5) Add the la-la meat, sliced fish cakes and crab sticks into the soup.
(6) Add the noodle last, boil till its soft and they are ready to serve.

  1. There are corn flour on the noodles which will make the soup starchy, this is what makes the dish special so do not wash away the corn flour.
  2. You need to soak the fresh la-la clams in water with a pinch of salt to make them spit out the dirt & mud.  Remember to change the water regularly till the water is almost clear.
