Confinement Food - Mee Sua Soup

This is the mee sua soup that I have for lunch most of the times. My mom cooked for me for the first three weeks and I cooked the above myself. It actually pretty delicious.


Sesame oil
Shredded gingers
1 large egg, beaten
Cut sweet snap peas/ snowpeas (optional)
ground pork

Season to taste with soy sauce, salt and sugar.


1. Heat the wok with sesame oil and when hot, add in the shredded gingers and stir-fry until slightly brown, add in the egg. Stir-fry for a little while and add in the amount of water you want (for soup).

2. When boiled, add in the ground pork (drop it in like meat balls). Boiled until the ground pork balls are cooked, season to taste with the seasoning above.

3. Quickly boil another pan of hot water and drop the dried mee sua to soften. This only takes a second, dish out and place in a bowl. Scoop in the soup and enjoy it immediately.

Thanks Gracio. :) I'm about back to normal now except I still have some extra pounds to lose. What to do, I ate a lot during my confinement month. :P Taking care of a baby and a toddler is definitely not easy, I don't know how I will cope when my mom goes home. *scare to think about it now*

Thanks vh. Will post more soon!

Yes, look for one that has the picture of an old man and old lady on the cover. I got the Caravelle brand from China. Good luck in your search!
