Fried this hokkien flat mee was really yummy, family loves them. Got this packet of FLAT hokkien mee (not the round type of yellow mee) from NTUC Supermarket. Was about 450 gm served two people only. You can use any ingredients, I used some fish cakes, prawns,one teaspoon of minced garlic, one packet of the flat hokkien mee. For the sauce - I used 1 tablespoon light soya sauce, 1 tablespoon dark soya sauce, 3 to 4 tablespoon of ketchup, 2 teaspoon of Glory Nonya Sambal Chilli (lesser if you prefer less spicy). This is how the flat hokkien mee look like after removing from the bag. (see the above photo) Firstly, wash the hokkien mee and boil one pot of water. When the water boiled, off the flame and add in the mee to blanch them. Then add some oil in a wok, fry the garlic till fragrant and add in the prawns and fishcake. Fry till almost cooked, then use a strainer to scoop the mee from the pot and transfer to the wok. Add in the sauce and mix them evenly together with the ingredients. The mee cooked very fast and served hot on a nice plate. This portion served two people only unless you are a great eater then served one lol.

My first attempt on dried mee siam so it is not beautifully decorated or garnished.
There are many recipes of dried mee siam in the internet but this is my version. (adapted fromhttp://www.deliciousasianfood.com/)
200 gm rice vermicelli (soaked in hot water till soft and drained)
2 tbsp of dried shrimps (crushed and soaked)
1 large onion (minced)
1 tbsp of taucheon (preserved soya beans)(crushed)
2 beaten eggsfish cake (sliced)
2 tsp of chilli paste (see photo)-you can use any brand of chilli paste
2 small lime
2 tsp of Light soya sauce (or to taste)
1 tsp of sugar (or to taste)
1. Add some oil to wok, fry onion and shrimps till fragrant.
2. Add taucheon and chilli paste and fry till fragrant.
3. Add fish cake and prawns and fry till almost cooked and set aside.
4. Fry beaten eggs till almost done and mixed with the above ingredients in wok and add rice vermicelli.
5. Mix well and sprinkle some water and cooked till done.
6. Serve with a squeeze of the limes.
Note: You can add sliced boiled eggs as decoration to the mee siam.
As I do not like to pound the chilli, I bought the ready chilli paste.
The above photo was my first attempt, I will try again and this time I will add tau pok and sliced boiled egg to make my mee siam look prettier...lol
