Kon Low Mien (Dried Noodles)

Jeff had a strong craving for konlow mee last Sunday. We went to Selera at Newmarket for lunch and Jeff was deciding if he should spend $12 on konlow mee or take the nasi lemak. He chose nasi lemak instead. Wise choice; as I later found out how easy it is to make your own konlow mee. Right after lunch we dropped by at the Asian supermarket and bought the noodles. Got home and I googled on how to make konlow mee and stumbled upon this great food blog. Woo… and here’s my result! It’s so damn easy and so tasty. The cost is probably $2 I would say!

All you need is dark soya sauce, light soya sauce, sesame oil, oyster sauce and some chopped garlic fried in a little bit of oil for that nice fragrance. Mix all that together. We had some spinach and pork dumplings to go with it as well. Put some water to boil, dip your noodles in for a minute or two, take it out and run it under cold water to stop the cooking apparently, then drop the spinach and dumplings in the water till cooked. The spinach should cook really quickly so probably like 15 secs or so. Then put the noodles back in the hot water to warm it up (in a stainless steel siever) just before serving; put the noodles in your bowl with all the sauce mixture and along with the vege and meat (you can use bbq roast pork, chicken, whatever) and you’re all set! 🙂

And there…we had a great slurpee yummy tasty konlow noodles for dinner that Sunday. Oh, just one thing though, the noodles that we got is not really the one used for making konlow mien. It’s sort of like a different texture and lighter in colour… nevertheless, still tasty.
