I have always loved wanton noodles! However, like alot of other noodle dishes that i love, i cannot stand the strong “kee” smell in the usual store bought noodles. Some people say it’s due to the alkaline water, some say its the wheat glutem. Whaever it is, i hate it! It is often very oily and with this strong unpleasant flavour. Now that I have started making my own noodles, I can finally enjoy all my favourite noodle dishes!

Today i made a bigger portion of noodles to test the liquid ratio and also to keep the noodles over the next couple of days. It turned out QQ and al dente, with a nice flavour just like the first time 😀

Ingredients:

  • Homemade wantons (makes 15 wantons)
  1. 125g minced pork
  2. 1 shallot, chopped
  3. 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  4. Spring onion, chopped
  5. Dash of black pepper
  6. 1/2 tbsp sesame oil
  7. 2-3tbsp soy sauce

  11. A few prawns, cut in chunks (optional)
  • Sauce for noodles (serves 2)
  1. 1 tbsp thick dark soy sauce
  2. 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  3. 1/2 tbsp sesame oil
  4. 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  5. 1 tbsp kecap manis (sweet soy sauce)
  6. Pepper

Method:

  1. Mix all the ingredients for the wantons except the wrappers in a bowl.
  2. Wrap wantons into desired shape.
  3. Cook wanton noodles in boiling water for about 2 -2.5 minutes until cooked and al dente. Cooking time varies according to noodles used.
  4. Mix all the ingredients for the sauce until well combined.
  5. Cook homemade noodles for about 3 minutes until al dente.
  6. Drain noodles and mix with sauce.
