Lomi Special

Lomi Special

Lomi Special, some readers were requesting the recipe of lomi, in fact I do have already a recipe for lomi but that was cooked using instant lomi noodles. Click here to see that post. Today I would like to share my special version of lomi, beside the usual lomi ingredients I also used kikiam and squid balls and some hoisin sauce.

For the noodles I use those fresh yellow noodles that are sold at most Metro Manila supermarket, It is actually the same kind that are sold on most wet markets. To reduce the lye water after taste I recommend that fresh yellow noodles be parboiled for a minute or two first and rinse thoroughly. Lye is widely used to make “kunat” or springiness in noodles. Here is the recipe.

Ingredients:

1/2 kilo fresh lomi noodles
12 pcs. squid balls cut in half
12 pcs. kikiam, cut into small wedges
2 cup small size shrimp, shelled
1 cup pork, boiled, cut into strips
1 cup chicken, boiled shredded
1 small size carrot, cut into strips
1 small bundle kinchay, chopped
1 napa cabbage, shredded
1/2 head garlic, chopped
1 small size onion, sliced thinly
1 tbsp Hoisin sauce
1/2 cup cornstarch
6 medium size egg, beat
1/2 cup patis
salt and pepper
cooking oil

Cooking procedure:

Lomi Special - Cooking Procedure

In a deep pan sauté garlic and onion, add in shrimp, squid ball and kikiam. Stir cook for 2-3 minutes or until shrimp turn to bright orange color, remove from pan and keep aside. Using same pan heat some more oil, add in pork, chicken and patis, stir cook for 2-3 minutes or until meat turn to light brown. Pour in about 2 1/2 liters of stock (from boiling the meat/shrimp head and shells) and bring to a boil, simmer for 2-3 minutes. Add in rinsed fresh lomi noodles and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until lomi noodles are soft but firm. Add in hoisin sauce, stir cooked shrimp, squid ball, kikiam, vegetables and kinchay, cook for another 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and thicken broth with cornstarch diluted in 1 cup of water. Pour in the beaten egg in a thin stream, stirring continuously. Cook for another minute. Serve hot.
