Light & Easy Noodles Soup

Light & easy noodle soup......I cooked it and I named it. :P Nothing is wrong, right?

When I'm lazy and not feel like messing up my kitchen, I'll cook this. What is so special about this noodle? Take a look at the photo. Can you see the meat balls? Well, this is not the common meat balls. It's my home made pork & shrimp balls. Aha...that's the thing enhance the soup base and the overall taste. There's secret how to make "QQ" mouth feel of meat & shrimp balls. I got thumbs up from hubby on this dish. :D

To add the "Omph", serve this with bird's eye chili. It's superb!

Light & Easy Noodles Soup
Serves 2


2 pcs of organic noodle
some choy sam flowers
some fish balls
1 cube of Maggie Chicken Stock
1 tbsp of garlic oil
120gms minced pork
100gms minced shrimp
dash of pepper
light soy sauce to taste


1. First, prepare the pork & prawn balls. Mix the minced pork and minced shrimp in a bowl. Add a dash of pepper and a tea spoon of light soy sauce and mix well.

Tips: In order to make tendor meat & shrimp balls, I apply "carry & hit" method. I think many of you know about this tips too. Pour the pork & prawn misture on the chopper board. Then hold the misture up with a knife and it on the chopper board. Do this for at least 20 times.

2. Make the pork & prawn misture into oval shape of prawn balls and arrange on a plate.

3. Bring water to a boil in a pot. Cook the noodle and serve in bowls.

4. Bring 800ml of water to a boil. Add in chicken stock and leave it to simmer for 2 minutes.

5. Add in the pork and prawn balls to the soup. This follow by the fish balls and veggie.

6. Add in garlic oil, and pour in the noodle to mix well.

Not so ec for me. I always make a mess when 'hitting' the minced meat. =(

Wait a minute, are you saying each prawn & meat ball needs to be hit 20 times?? Gulp! That's a lot of work, no?

Sometimes, I do use miso based soup as well. You may check it out. There are some "healthier" soup base available in organic shop as well. Yours look yummy too!

I usually use the pure chicken stock rather than the maggi chicken cube as I feel that too many MSG in there. lol The prawn and meat balls look fabulous!
