Thai Mee Hoon Kerabu (Salad)

Nope, nope, no heavy stuff cooking today. Its back to the basics (Cucumber Yogurt Salad, Spicy Fried Fish & Tofu Scrambled Eggs), please stop doubting yourself and myself (Cumin Rice). I clearly know what I am saying albeit its a Thai dish (Green Fish Curry & Seafood Tom Yam Soup), as well as a noodle dish (Mee Rojak Vegetarian) and packed with fantastic Thai hits (Tom Yam Fried Mee Hoon, Noodles In Thai Sauce & Tom Yam Prawn Fried Rice). Mee Hoon Kerabu basically also means you don't have to cook (Chicken Feet Kerabu/Salad). Chop, cut and toss the ingredients together. Blanched mee hoon, chillies, limau purut/kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass and the rest of the ingredients as listed below.

3 slabs (150g) mee hoon 
10 pieces of snow green peas - sliced thinly
1 cup of bean sprouts - break the tail off
5 shallots - sliced thinly
1 small lime - extract juice
5-6 chilly/birds eye chillies (can replaced with red chillies) - sliced
1/2 cup crushed roasted peanuts
4-5 limau purut/kaffir lime leaves - sliced thinly
1 lemongrass - sliced thinly
2 salted eggs - boiled and remove shells
Salt to taste

Blanch mee hoon for a couple of minutes in hot water and immediately into cold water.
Drain and keep aside.
Do the same for peas and bean sprouts.
Into a large mixing bowl, add all ingredients together.
Toss and stir before serving with salted eggs.
Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!!
