Baking bread is not my cup of tea. I had tried numerous times but without success, either the dough did not rise or the bread is hard and when throw against the wall it can bounce back. Time is needed to wait for proofing and rising of the dough which I lack the patience. There are blogs that featured "no rise bread" which I tried and succeed.

Yee Fu noodles are easy to cook. Cook in boiling water till soft and drain dry. Fry the vegetables (mushrooms, cabbage, chives, carrot, black fungus) with a can of "Lor Han Chia", seasons and add a bit of dark soya sauce. Stir in the noddles and mix well.
The noodles have to use up immediately after purchase as they tend to go rancid easily if kept too long.
