Tai Ping Mian (Birthday Misua with hard boiled eggs)

Mum used to make a big bowl of Mee Sua soup (fujianese thin noodle) on our birthday. As it was specially prepared for the birthday boy/girl. It became all the more precious and tasty.

It is my birthday today, and my mum told me to make a bowl of this noodle soup, as a sign of her love and blessing for me.

So I did....

1 bunch of Xiamen Mee Sia (Xia Men Thin Noodle)
2 hard boiled eggs
1 piece/ 100 gm of chicken breast/pork loin (Slice thinly and marinate with salt, Chinese cooking wine and a pinch of pepper for about 20 minutes, blend with 1/2 tsp of corn starch before cooking.)
4-5 Dried mushroom (Soaked and slice) I used fresh mushroom
1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
1/2 tsp Chopped spring onion
1/2 tsp Fried Shallot and oil
1 Bowl of Chicken or any kind of stock

Salt or fish sauce to taste

Parts of the ingredients...

Here is my 2 cents on making fried shallot and oil in small quantity.

Slice two shallots into thin slices, mix with 1 tsp oil, microwave it for 1 minute, take it out, briefly mix it with a spoon, repeat the same process twice until shallot become golden brown and fragrant.

My microwave needs a total of 2 minutes 45 seconds to get a perfect golden brown fried shallot. You ay want to check a few times to find the best duration on yours.

In a heavy bottom cookware, bring stock to boil, season with salt or fish sauce, keep it boiling.

In a wok/pan, add about 2 tsp oil, stir in ginger garlic paste, when fragrant, add marinated chicken and mushroom, cook for 3-5 minutes or until cooked.

In another cookware, bring a pot of water to boil, cook Mee Sua (Noodle) briefly, place it on a bowl.

Place chicken and mushroom over noodle. Pour in piping hot stock.

Garnish with Fried shallot and oil and chopped spring onion.

I wish for world peace and everyone's health and safety!
