Lum Mee is actually quite similar to noodle soup but in Lum Mee they give you lesser soup and the condiments given are different too. The condiments are such as chicken meat, meat ball, fish ball, sliced fried egg, fried onion and sambal. My father in law make good lum mee and I learn it from him. Moreover, hubby loves this very much. Well, another way to the man heart is thru his stomach.
This type is for hubby, my sister and myself. My sister was trying to be funny and ask me, 'cheh why the egg got red and yellow color only? Where is the green color? Then, it will look like a traffic light................' Niamah. Cook for her lagi talk so much.
This is for my kids. Don't it look lovely with the smiley star fishball?
Recipe for the soup
3 pcs of drumstick
1kg of chicken bones
2 liters of water
salt & pepper to tasting
2 tbsp cornflour mix with some water
1. Place the drumstick, chicken bone and water in a pot and boil for about 1 hour.
2. Then, take out the drumstick and remove the meat. Put the bone back to the pot and let it cook. Add salt and pepper to tasting.
3. Then, mix in the cornflour mixture to slightly ticken the soup. Not too much otherwise you will have starch instead of soup. A little bit of the cornflour mixture is to make the soup taste smooth.
Other ingredients (below items are depends on how much you want to consume. So, buy according to the number of person that you will be serving)

It's just like the normal way we cook our noodle soup. Put the noodle in the hot water and toss it a while. Put the fishball or meatball in the boiling water to cook. Then, place all the things in a plate/bowl. Pour some soup and serve it with some sambal.
