Wonton noodles is a noodle dish whereby noodles are tossed in a soy sauce mixture and then served with pickled chillies, vegetables (e.g. Chinese flowering cabbage/choi sum) and wontons. In Malaysia, it is known as wan tan mee.
Compared to other countries such as Hong Kong, Malaysian and Singaporean wonton noodles are made with soy sauce mixture. There is a slight difference though as Singaporean wonton noodles uses much less soy sauce. You may also find soup wonton noodles in Malaysia although the ‘dry’ version which is shown in this recipe is the more popular version. Sometimes called as ‘kon loh mee’ which means dry mixed noodles, it is a big favourite among kids and also adults.
Wonton noodles are thin egg noodles. They can be bought fresh or sometimes frozen at the Asian grocers. Otherwise, use dried egg noodles as a substitute.
Bring water to a rolling boil. Then cook fresh noodles for 1-2 minutes. Run it through a cold water rinse very quickly before tossing it into the soy sauce mixture.
Sure! Wantan noodles can also be served together with the chicken from the Hainanese Chicken Rice recipe. If you prepare more servings, just increase the amount of ingredients accordingly.
My great grandma sold noodles to make ends meet ever since she was a young lady. She had been doing just that for almost half a century before she retired! Perhaps that is why, even after all these years, we still have this love for noodles.
