Lor Mee ala Terengganu

Terengganu Style Loh Mee; Mummy claimed that she used to have it when she was a child. YES! Mummy is orang Terengganu. Erm…what is the difference between the usual Lor Mee and this? I would say, the soup! Mummy got the recipe from a cookbook.


  • 4-5 shallots, pound to a paste
  • 500g prawns, shelled and deveined
  • 125ml dark soy sauce (kicap manis)
  • 500g cooked crab meat (substitute with chicken thigh)
  • 2 litres hot chicken stock
  • 6-8 tablespoon sweet potato flour, mixed with 125ml water
  • salt to taste

500g yellow noodles(substitute with lou shu fun), blanched


  • 300g bean sprouts, tailed & blanched
  • 100g Chinese chives, cut into 3cm length and blanched
  • 1 large cucumber, cut into julienne
  • chilies or bird-eye chillies, sliced
  • fried shallots
  • 5 limes, quartered

To prepare broth:

Heat oil in a wok over medium heat. Fry shallot paste until fragrant. Add prawns and kicap manis. Cook for 5 minutes. Add crab meat (here I substitute with chicken thigh), water & chicken stock; bring to boil. Lower heat and stir in potato flour mixture. Bring to boil. Season with salt and remove from heat.


To serve:

Place noodles in a bowl. Add broth and top with bean sprouts, chives, cucumber, chillies, fried shallots and squeeze of lime.
