Kaffir lime leaf Fried Mee hoon

For a change, I added Kaffir lime leaves into normal fried mee hoon (rice vermicelli), , the fried mee hoon is full of Kaffir lime aroma, very fragrant and nice.

Simple recipe to share:-


400g meehoon (rice vermicelli), soaked and drained

chinese cabbage

Kaffir lime leaves (cut small pieces)

carrot (shredded)

Onion (shredded)

Fresh prawn

chicken breast meat (slices)

fish ball / fish cake (slices)

chopped garlic



light soy sauce


dark soy sauce(for coloring)




red chilli (shredded)

parsley (chopped)

Method :

1. Heat up oil, saute the chopped garlic until fragrant.

2. Add in kaffir lime leaves, prawn, fish cake and chicken breast meat, stir-fry until meat cooked.

3. Add in water and cooked till boiled. Add seasoning and stir well. Mix meehoon and stir well.

4. Add shredded carrot and shredded chinese cabbage.

5. Stir-fry until meehoon is cooked

6. Dish up and garnish with red chilli and parsley

Anncoo, so good, you have kaffir lime in your garden, usually I go to wet market to buy some (about RM0.50/bundle).

Bakeling, you can cook this too.

Meehoon is one of my favorites, whether in soup or fried. This sure looks good esp with the prawns! Kaffir leaf definitely adds to the aroma.
