In a recent puja attended, there was a small bowl of sweet noodles (Tian Mee) served during lunch which brought back good old memories when we were young and our parents used to bring us to visit a temple at Punggol which served the sweet noodles on their Sunday lunch to the public. S enquired mum if she could remember and mum replied that the sweet noodles is a birthday celebration noodles for the Teochews and served monthly at the temple. Only then do we know this Teochew tradition and a request was made to cook this noodles on next birthday.
Hence, this bowl of simple but full of love and sweetness noodles shown above materialised.
Simply drop a cube of coconut/brown sugar into a pot of water to boil and then put the fine eggless noodles (boiled & drained in advance) into the pot to cook. No other ingredients needed. Well, now I understand why in the lunch, only a small bowl about 2 mouthful is distributed for each to taste, because taking one normal portion bowl can be overwhelming! 2 mouthful is just nice...Good things need not be much, so just cook one small bowl for all to share the sweetness... :-)
May All Be Well !!!
