Ikan Bilis (Anchovies) Mee Soup


A flavorful stock says it all about the essential taste for a noodle dish. Stock can be made with meat, poultry bones or just vegetables for the vegetarian version. Dried anchovies I've also figured out are another foundation for broth. Sure enough, for this mee soup, they flavoured the broth and were later topped over the assembled ingredients.

Ingredients
2 tbsp anchovies
Yellow noodles/mee (as needed)
4 pips garlic (chopped)
10 fish balls
1 piece fish cake (sliced)
3 stalks spring onions (shredded)
1 tsp anchovies granules (optional)
3 tbsp oil
1 liter water
Salt and pepper for taste.

Method
In heated oil, fry garlic till crispy.
Remove and keep aside.
In same oil, fry anchovies till crispy.  
Remove and keep aside. 
Carefully pour water in the oil and season with granules and salt.
Simmer the broth to heat through. 
Blanch fish balls and fish cake in  the broth
Remove and assemble with the rest of the ingredients including the fried garlic and anchovies.
Pour over the stock and serve immediately.
