Turmeric Fried Mee Hoon & Laksa Meat Patties
Friday, August 11, 2017
My kids love all kinds of meat patties. Depending on what ingredients I have on that particular day, I always come up with different flavours meat patties. I want to clear a pack of laksa paste, so here is my special laksa meat patties! hahaha....Its a simple concoction of minced chicken, fish paste, some fresh herbs like laksa leaves and spring onion and minimal seasoning as the laksa paste is rather salty. As usual without fail both my kids happily polished up all the meat patties. ^0^
This is a special fried mee hoon infused with fresh turmeric! Really fragrant and appetising as some pickled onions is tossed into the fried mee hoon at the end of the cooking process. You should try this out!
