Mee Siam Mai Hum

This is my favourite breakfast. What better thing to stir up your taste buds when your stomach hasn’t quite woken up yet. But I made this for dinner at home.

You divide the paste into 2 portions. With one portion, you make the gravy. Most pastes require you to prepare your own tamarind juice. I just used half a bowl of freshly squeezed lime juice for this one.

The other portion, you fry until fragrant with oil and then mix with boiled bee hoon. Make sure you boil the bee hoon and don’t just soak it. Otherwise, you’ll end up with the old SAF’s barbed wire bee hoon.

Add lightly cooked bean sprouts and pour the boiling gravy over.
