Soup Noodles at home

On weekends, we usually do not have rice meals at home, if we can help it! Weekends are meant to be relaxing and more laid back... so when it comes to food, I try to rustle up something different but equally delicious and fulfilling!

Last Saturday I managed to get some very fresh fishballs, meatballs, fishcakes and fishpaste fuchook from the morning street market here. With those, I decided to cook simple Soup Noodles for lunch.

For the soup, you can use chicken, ikan bilis or meat bones to make the stock. You just need to boil them for about an hour and then season it. I added in the fish and meatballs and cooked them in the soup for a few minutes. I also threw in some Siew Pakchoy to add some greens to the dish.

Blanch your noodles in hot water, then pour in the soup, balls and vegetables and you get this simple nutritious noodle dish...


Of course, being Malaysians, we must have our "dips" ... do you fancy chilli padi in soya sauce? I do!
Or maybe some chilli sauce? It goes well with the fried fuchook and fishcakes...
We had 2 types of fishcakes - the round ones and the oblong ones... just fry them lightly...
... and then slice them up to serve...

The fishpaste fuchook were great when fried crispily... just make sure you drain away the oil on some kitchen towels before serving!
