Mie Kangkung5

What can be miserably missed out of my time spent in Jakarta's boarding house? (other than going out to the nearby mall almost every weekend). Yes, you are right! Foods!! And the food which associated with that nearby mall is this kind of noodle with chicken, mushroom and water spinach topping...my fave! And I just tried to adapt it into my kitchen. Here is the result...

-1 package of shanghai noodle, boiled, drained and oiled
- bunch of water spinach/kangkung, boiled

To make the soup:
- 1.5L of fresh chicken broth
- 4 cloves of garlic, chopped
- 2 green onion, chopped
- 2egg
- 1Tbsp of corn starch
- salt, pepper and sugar to taste

Boil the broth and add previously sauteed garlic. Add salt, pepper and sugar to taste. You may add some broth block to enrich the taste (I prefer sa-cha sauce thou..). Crack the egg and stir it instantly. Mix the corn starch with a little bit of water and then pour the liquid into the boiling broth and stir until thicken. At last add the chopped green onion.

To make chicken topping:
- 4 cooked whole chicken leg
- 1 can of quail egg
- 2 can of whole straw mushroom
- 4cm ginger
- 6 cloves of garlic, chopped
- 2 Tbsp fish sauce
- 2 Tbsp oyster sauce
- 3 Tbsp sweet soy sauce
- 3 green onion, chopped
- ground white pepper
- sugar
- water
- sesame oil for saute

Shred the chicken meat into small pieces or cut into square chunk and discard the bones. In a pan, saute the garlic and ginger for 2min. Add the shredded chicken meat, continue to stir. Add fish sauce, oyster sauce, pepper and sugar. Add mushroom and then sweet soy sauce, stir constantly. Add water as needed. Add quail egg, green onion and adjust the taste.

To serve in a bowl, place the noodle first, and then kangkung and chicken topping. Pour the soup on top of it. Sprinkle some fried onion. Add some chili sauce if you like it spicy. Serve while it is hot.

I am glad that I am able to join the fun at Presto Pasta Night for the second time by submitting this noodle recipe, and this week is hosted by Sara.

Wonderful idea and recipe. I had the ingredients in the pantry and was too full to think after 3 bowls of bouillabaisse! To relax my stomach I will think of this recipe cook tomorrow for the family. Thank you for sharing.
