Yesterday, I had the leisure of making Mein Fun Gao for dinner. The temperature dropped a bit so it was perfect. Mein Fun Gao is a Hakka comfort food, it is very basic and stemmed from when poverty was widespread. Basically, I chopped up garlic and ginger, heated a pot and stir fried them with dried anchovies until fragrant and then I filled it with water for the soup base. I put in left over prawn heads I had saved for occassions like this and pop them in for enhanced essence. While that is stewing, I made the dough, comprising of flour, egg, oil and a bit of water. That's it. It's super simple and the most important of all, have really spicy chilli and slice that thinly into a dish of soy sauce. Caramelize some dried anchovies in a small pan with sugar till it burns a bit. Viola.
