Way back home, when it's rainy and cold, a bowl of hot sopas (chicken noodle soup), hot mami (beef noodle soup) or hot lomi (egg noodle soup) will be nice to keep us warm. In fact, even if the weather is fair and sunny, still these foods are so good to feed a hungry lady like me.
When my mom visited us here, I made sure that she will pass on to me her lomi recipe. I'm glad she did. Now I'm sharing it to all who reads this and I hope you'll enjoy this.
2 cloves garlic
1 small size onion
150 grams of pork belly or loin chop (cut into small cubes)
1 medium size carrot
150 grams of green beans (sliced)
200 grams of cooked egg noodles
1 stem of spring onion (chopped)
2 boiled egg
1 fresh egg
1 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp Fish sauce (optional)
2 tablespoon of cooking oil.
800 ml of water
1 tablespoon cornstarch (optional)
This dish is so easy to cook just make sure you got everything ready and at hand. In a pan, boil the pork in about 6 tablespoons of water. When dry enough, pour in the cooking oil. Fry the pork until golden brown or just the way you want it. Then stir in the garlic followed by onion for 1 minute.
After than put in the green beans and carrots and stir-fry for 3 minutes. Transfer in a large sauce pan with 800 ml of water. Let it boil. Then put the egg noodles along with salt, pepper and fish sauce. Make sure that you wash and drain the noodles to remove natural oil from it. Adjust seasoning based on your taste.
Finally, after 5 minutes, put the fresh egg and stir. Let it boil again for 3-5 minutes. You may want to add some cornstarch (dissolve in water) to thicken the soup.
Topped with boiled egg and spring onion before serving.
By the way, other recipes of lomi have different ingredients. But this is how I cook it. You probably have your own version. Care to share? Please comment below, I would love to here it and try it as well. Thank you.
