Whenever I eat mee hoon kueh, it always reminds me of childhood. My aunt loves making it during weekend and she would add preserved mustard into the dough which I really hate. But other times when she decided to keep things simple, I would always go for an extra serving because it is such very comforting.
Now that I have moved out to stay in my new home with my husband, I miss mee hoon kueh at times and over the weekends, I finally found time to do it! It’s seriously not easy trying to cook and video all alone but I am super happy to be able to complete it. The most tedious part is to pinch the dough. To be honest, I redid it twice because some online recipes are just so not reliable. In the end, I decided to prepare it according to my memory and glad it turned out well in the end.
Of course, it’s not the best mee hoon kueh but this is how I remembered to be. I couldn’t find any mani cai in supermarket, so I used spinach in the end. I didn’t make my own pork broth, to be honest. The supermarket has ready made pork broth which makes it so much easier to cook for busy executives! Enjoy!
