Auspicious Dishes for CNY: 什锦炒伊面

Dinner was on me tonight. Headache on what to cook! Haha! Wanted to do stew chicken and potato at first. 

But.. the moment my eyes caught Ee fu noodles! 
I knew it's you for tonight. 


I LOVE EE FU NOODLES! But I've never cooked it at home before! 

So I use my way of cooking hokkien mee to make this, won't hurt to just substitute the mee right?

1. 500g Ee fu noodles 
2. 200g pork belly (sliced)
3. 1 box Tau pok (sliced)
4. 1 packet dried bean sticks (pre-soaked)
5. 10 chinese mushrooms (pre-soaked and sliced)
6. 1 packet Hotdogs anNgo Hiang (sliced)
7. Half a cauliflower (chopped into small pieces)
8. 1 whole stalk of celery (chopped)
9. 2 packets of beansprouts
10. Chopped onions and garlic
11. 500g water
12. 2 tbsp dark soya sauce

1. Blanched noodles and drained. Set aside.
2. Heat oil in wok. Add garlic, onion and fried till golden brown.
3. Toss in pork belly and mushroom.
4. Add taupok, beansticks, hotdogs and ngo hiang. Stir fry a while and close lid.
5. Add all vegetables except beansprouts. Give a quick stir and close lid.
6. Add noodles, sauce and water. Bring it to boil.
7. Toss in the beansprouts. Mix well.
8. Plate and dish. 

I know this is not really the usual Ee fu noodles that you see and this is really my style of cooking. :P Truly one very 什锦炒伊面! Haha! But I think this is also the fun of cooking! Always experimenting with new ingredients! Also the reason why the same dish cooked will always taste differently each time. Because I have no real recipe and doesn't follow one. I follow my heart. LOL!  

Warning: Though this is cooked for my family of 4, the amount is actually enough to feed 6-8.
