Mian Fen Gao, a chinese flat noodle soup

Growing up, I remember looking forward to "mian fen gao" Fridays. Ma specially cooked the meat-free meals on Fridays to make sure that we abstained from meat as Catholics do.

Ingredients for mian fen gao
1kg flour
1 tbsp salt
2 eggs
3 tbsp oil
Ma has since modified the dough to make it just a bit healthier. She now adds pumpkin and yam.

Cooketh simply by deep frying small red onions and adding anchovy soup, "money" vegetable and [cuttle]fish balls. The anchovy soup is prepared by boiling anchovies and then sifting the anchovies when adding to the wok.

I admit, I have not really been keeping up the Friday fast since moving out from home. Tis a good reminder coming back here.
