Sesame Wine Chicken With Somen/Mee Sua



This Sesame Wine Chicken With Somen or Mee Sua has a rich aroma of roasted sesame oil, Shaoxing's wine, and ginger. This is a great soup to serve during the cooler season. They just warm you up! Anyway, Somen is a thin Japanese wheat noodle, and they are also known as Mee Sua in Malaysia. These noodles are very absorbent. So, ladle the soup in the noodles when you're about to savour the dish. Another option, you can serve them separately too.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
