马来西亚新生活

IMG_20160326_222136

记得上次敲击键盘写长篇幅的文章是在十年前,那时每天心情澎湃,几天之间就能写出很多杂乱的东西,恍然间已经过了十年,我从一个深山僻壤来到马来西亚的缤纷世界,在这里我认识我的妻子Hajar爱家, 马来西亚人。我们在这里开始了自己的一次创业之旅,我所在的地方是马来西亚新山,这里有热情的马来人同胞,有几代人之前飘洋过海移居马来西亚的华人和印度人。

感谢安拉赐予我的一切,我在这里有着幸福的家庭,现在我推出我的产品是酿皮和饺子。对于饺子多数人是比较熟悉的,在中国有着家家户户吃饺子的传统,我的饺子特色是中国穆斯林的独有风味的饺子,味道确实很好,和我在家吃的饺子一样,是海外游子必吃的食品,而酿皮在马来西亚是个很陌生的零食,在我的家乡人民有的地方也称凉皮,制作过程大同小异,而酿皮要更高的制作要求,因为它的比较厚,所以制作过程中没有独特的方法,做出来的酿皮没有弹性,也容易断,口感就不好。另外面筋是一个很有特色的食品,有弹性,有嚼劲,在吃货眼里这才是精华之所在。

The Story of Niangpi

As’salaamualaikum, peace be upon everyone!

酿皮 . Niangpi . Cold Noodles . Mee Sejuk

One of the first items that made it into our menu was “Niangpi“, which we roughly translate as cold noodles. If you were to Google it online, it is often written as “cold rice noodles” or “cold-skin noodles”, and described as “thick and flat noodles” or “noodle-and-tofu cold dish.”

Ironically, the noodles do not contain rice nor tofu.

In Malaysia, most of the time you can only find niangpi at China Chinese Muslim restaurants, and the taste differs from one restaurant to the other. Since there is practically no China Chinese Muslim restaurants in Johor Bahru (well, not that we know of anyway), most of our customers have never seen or heard of niangpi. Most thought the noodles looked like chunky squid strips or a thick version of the local kway teow (rice noodles). And they often think the mianjin (gluten sponge) is tofu, tripe or fish.

Occasionally, our clients would ask how do we make the noodles. To make niangpi requires supernatural amount of patience. as the entire process is time-consuming and complex. We practically have to spend hours washing the flour to get the gluten out, draining out the water, steaming it in batches and manually cutting it into thin strips. On top of that, we have to prepare the dressing, which involves at least 5 different types of condiments, each with its own distinct preparation styles.

One thing is for sure, we certainly have that sense of accomplishment each time we successfully create a fresh new batch. We are usually the first to sample each batch because Kai Kai is extremely particular in achieving the al dente texture.

According to Kai Kai, niangpi is commonly found at his hometown and people eat it throughout the day. Due to its cooling nature, the noodles are also often taken during summer, making it perfect for the weather in Malaysia which is pretty much summer all year long.

So how does a plate of niangpi taste like?

Well, you will have to taste it to find out. 😀

  • “Jiuhe” (Stuffed Pockets), is filled with a generous amount of shredded carrots, minced meat and finely chopped green onions.
  • “Shan Zha Liang Cha” (Hawthorn Cooling Tea), is full of the many benefits of hawthorn berries, raisins, goji berries and red dates.

So, have our menu tickled your taste buds yet?

Our Menu!

As’salaamualaikum, peace be upon everyone!

As all of you would have known, we specialize in creating Northwestern China Chinese Muslim food items. Most of the recipes and cooking methods were taught by my in-laws when they came by for a visit.

Needless to say, we cooked up quite a storm and had a nerve-wrecking crash course. All the efforts paid off because Alhamdulillah, we can now venture into the food business.

Here is a sneak peak of our menu:

For those who are not too familiar with Northwestern China Chinese Muslim food, you may refer to the following for a brief information on it:

  • “Niangpi” (cold noodles) is best served cold, and you can request for niangpi without mianjin (gluten sponge), with mianjin, or with extra mianjin.
  • “Jiaozi” (dumplings) consist of small pieces of dough wrapped around meat or vegetables fillings.
  • “Youbing” (flat bread) can be eaten on its own, dipped in soups or other types of dipping sauces.

We have other items in the works, so stay tuned for more updates!
