Hello Kitty Mee Hoon Kueh

Hubby took my car off for servicing last Friday, so I decided to just stay at home with my boys. I cooked them Mee Hoon Kueh ( hand pulled noodles ) for lunch. To add some cuteness, I rolled out some of  the dough and cut them out using My Melody and Hello Kitty cookie cutters. This idea is from Bento makes me Happy, she has made this before for her little gal. :) I will share the recipe at the end of the post, so if you are interested, you can try making some too. :)

These two bowls of Mee Hoon Kueh are for my boys. I made a bowl for myself too, but did not take a picture of mine.

There's meatballs, veggies and fried silver fish, in addition to the noodles.

I only cut out some dough using the cookie cutters, and add on top to decorate. I pulled  and teared out most of the dough instead, as it's much faster to do so. :)

    1. The thinner you roll them, the closer they are to the original mee hoon Kueh. :)
