Joyful Noodle Baskets
Joyful Noodle Baskets will elevate your culinary prowess to restaurant style status!
Chinese New Year is full of symbolic beliefs when it concerns festive dishes and ingredients. Interestingly, Chinese believe that noodles are symbols of longevity. Hence, making them in baskets will ensure a “continuously smooth and joyous long life”. Fill homemade crispy noodle baskets with “happy” pistachios, “lucky” pineapple and “abundant” chicken plus fresh mushrooms. Then, wok fry these ingredients in a delicious savory sauce. Finally, toss in splashes of colour with orange toned firm fruits like fresh peaches, rock melon or even papaya for a local touch.
