Flower Crab Noodles

 
 Guess what's hidden underneath the crab?

Last weekend I bought a packet of Koka noodles from Jaya Jusco, it was my first time buying this brand after hearing or should I say, reading so much about it in the blogs. Out of curiosity, I cooked it for tonight's dinner. My girl was most happy for she simply loves packet noodles unlike yours truly here.

To enhance the taste of the soup, I bought one "Flower Crab" as a condiment... to my shock, one crab alone cost RM6.60! I should put it back after weighing it... LOL... but haiyah, what the heck, once awhile, it wouldn't hurt to pay a bit more to enjoy to the fullest, right?

Here it is.... my bowl of Koka noodles with Flower Crab.....
My extra plate of greens to go with the bowl of noodles!
Normally I will cook the noodles separately from the soup...
With boiled water, I soak the noodles and let it soften...
Then I rinsed it with some cold running water....
And finally, put the noodles into the boiling soup....
Well, I guess this is the most expensive bowl of noodles I ever cooked at home....
No more Flower Crab next time though the soup was amazingly sweet!

  1. Ya, i did my noodles like the way you do it, to get rid of the wax or what. Never buy flower crab cos my son is allergy to it but with the black ones, he is ok. Funny. Wow, expensive the crab. I would rather buy char sio, meat & fish balls and fried an egg.

  2. So cheap, the crabs. Can't get those sea crabs here, not laku. Everyone prefers the mud crabs but those are so so expensive. I can't afford. Sobssss!!!! :(

    1. What flavour your noodles? Use prawns, one or two enough, will also make the soup really sweet and it is much cheaper too.

    2. My girl doesn't like prawns... I bought the chicken mushroom flavour.. nothing spicy... next time just put egg and fish balls and vege...

  6. Call me jakun, I was shopping at Jusco and weighed 2 pieces of (not very big) salmon, the cost close to RM30!! I wanted to put back after weighing (and the fella already put inside the plastic bag), but malu and scared kena curse, so die die put back in my basket and paid for it..

    The soup must be very sweet and tasty, yumm yumm.. What else you put together to boil with the crab? Chicken? Ribs? If you ask me to guess what's inside the bowl, I would guess vegetables, assorted balls and pork/fish slice.. Ngam ahh?

    1. You are no Jakun.. Salmon is expensive one... but there are two types.. one is around RM49 per kilo and one is RM55 or so... not so sure of the price exactly.. I always buy the cheaper type.. in fact I bought one last week, around 6 inches long, it cost only RM7 something only... maybe you chose the expensive type. :) Never mind, die die also eat and enjoy first.. hahahaa...
      No, nothing inside the bowl except for the crabs and vegetables!

    2. Ala, hehehehe.. Ask us to guess what's underneath and now say nothing pulak.. I thought I saw something like pork/fish slices.. One bowl full of goodness, I guess you guys slurped everything dry..

  10. Your last photo of the crab, vege and noodles really look like those sold in hotels for more than Rm30. Must taste great!
    Rm6.6 for a flower crab I think is okla not super expensive. Once a while enjoy more and eat like in hotel at home.

  11. I love all crabs whether soft shell crabs or black crabs. They are fragrant to make any soup and sauce sweeter! Lately my hands started to develop red itchy marks after eating crabs. I think old age is developing allergies for me! Sobs!

    Crabs are getting more expensive these days. Maybe we should start catching them ourselves from the swampy land.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
